The Bend City Council had a long discussion - but in the end decided not to approve the proposed false alarm ordinance. A preliminary vote was split with Councilors Scott Ramsay - Tom Greene and Mayor Jeff Eager disagreeing with some of the language requiring a fee to register security alarms and a stiff fee for first false calls. Mayor Eager: "So, ok, I think we've talked about this issue for a while. And we'll have the opportunity to talk about it again. So I think the consensus is to bring it back in it's current form. If people want to amend it, they can do it with the first reading, if there are the votes." Most objections were regarding when fees should be imposed and how high the fines should be. Councilor Jodie Barram was absent - she would have cast the deciding vote - so the Council agreed to go back to square one with another first reading in July.
