In Wednesday’s meeting - the Deschutes County Commissioners voted to approve an investment in Central Oregon's business future.

 

Commissioner Tammy Baney says they are supporting the Economic Development for Central Oregon project with American Airlines for a direct flight between Redmond and L.A.

 

"We made an investment of $25,000 into the up-front investment pool. And that is to bring the carrier to the area. So we also may make a contribution into the “Travel Bank,” but this is really the dollars that are set aside to make sure that they know there's a commitment to offset costs, should there be any costs to offset. And we're excited about the opportunity to have American Airlines in our market."

 

Baney says they are pledging $2,000 to the "Travel Bank."

 

She says the L.A. market is important to our tourism and our economy for jobs.

 

She adds that with the $25,000 into the  $100,000 of up-front money, the goal is pretty close.
