Bend City Councilors and a new Mayor will take the oath of office tonight. Jodie Barram and Mark Capell were re-elected to office but this will be Scott Ramsey's first stint on the Council. Ramsey says trying to fill a $27-million General Fund budget over the next five-years. “Well, it's looking grim as most people know. Our real focus is figuring out where there is any fat to be trimmed and where we can make adjustments to fill the gaps.” Ramsey says he will use his business experience to help the council as they try to fill the void. He hopes avoid any kind of fee increase or tax stating that will be detrimental to the business climate in Bend. Bend City Council will meet tonight at 7.
