One of the leaders of the "Stop the DMV Effort" here in Bend, traveled to Keizer this week to again address the State Department of Transportation Board. Joe Mansfield made another plea to keep the Bend DMV at its current location and not move into the Brookswood Plaza in southwest Bend. With the pending lawsuit, Mansfield says Board members were much more tight-lipped, but he was encouraged. “It was just based on an intuitive sense and body language. The implication was they were trying to accelerate the process bring to a conclusion that would make everyone happy and allow the lawsuit not to be an issue anymore. My sense is they will try to resolve the DMV issue, so lawsuit will be a moot issue.” The "Stop the DMV" group will hold an informational meeting next Tuesday night at Elk Meadow Elementary School.
