What should be considered in determining the hotel-motel tax in Bend?   Bend City Councilors spent more a lot of time talking about that Wednesday night. The question they are debating is whether extra fees should be considered as a "room rate" and thus subject to the City's 9% tax. Hotel-motel operators believe only the "room rate" should be taxed.   The City Council is undecided and split over the issue. Councilor Mark Capell says he is concerned hotel-motel operators could avoid the tax by increasing extra fees, and thus avoid the tax. Councilors Scott Ramsey and Tom Green want to talk to the operators and think about it longer before they decide.
