Want to learn more about the City of Bend? They say give us five hours and we'll give you the City. Justin Finestone with the City of Bend: “Bend 101 is kind of a mini citizens academy that is going to take peoplethrough city operations; through our budgets, finances, what all our departments do. We are doing it because we want people to better understand where their tax dollars are going.” The City is going to take Bend 101 on the road, so if your group has five hours, call the City and they will customize a program that fits your needs. At the end of the five hours Finestone says you will have a much better understanding of everything from police and fire to the community development department.
