The City of Bend is getting involved in the DMV controversy at Brookswood Plaza. City Administrators must approve the building permits for the new DMV renovations, and City Manager Eric King says they are just making sure everything is by the book. “Most likely whatever decision they make has a high potential for a law suit. There have already been indications of that already. We just want to make sure the City is in the most legally sound position in how they process this building permit. That’s really what factored into our decision. The developer hasn't submitted his building permit application yet, but when he does, City Administrators will make a decision.” The developer doesn't agree with the decision, there will be an opportunity to appeal.
