The Bend City Council tackled a contentious subject: the storm water improvement project, in the work session Wednesday night.

 

The subject took up almost the entire hour of  the session, with Councilors voicing their positions on the project.

 

Councilor Mark Capell wanted to go forward with the project and was very a little frustrated with opposition:

“What it seems to me is a minority opinion in opposition of the project is going to – because they can’t win the argument is going to delay the project until they win. And delay, and delay and delay, and it ends up costing money.”

 

Doug Knight:  “I wouldn’t characterize the opposition as the ‘minority report’’ in this particular incident, Mark.” 

 

Capell:   “That’s your opinion.”

 

Knight: “Well, we’ve got 4 new councilors here that the Bulletin describes as being elected in a mandate for the community specific to this project.” 

 

Capell: “And I’m not sure that’s accurate.”

 

By the end of the session, Councilors agreed that they want a dual water system, but also want more public input on much of the project.

 

As they say..."to be continued..."
