The Bend Park and Recreation District had their Board of Directors meeting last night.

The Board voted to approve 1-hundred thousand dollars to match funds the city has offered to deal with the silt build up in mirror pond.

Board member Dallas Brown says that this issue needs to be delt with sooner than later.

"We are already starting to see the silt build up past the waterline and it is becoming quite an eyesore down there"

The first expense will be a study to look at methods of not only removing the existing silt, but also avoiding silt build up in the future.

Options from dredging Mirror pond to altering the Deschutes river will be considered.
