A few layoffs are part of the Bend City Budget proposal.  Three City employees will lose their jobs under the $428 million budget proposal.  City spokesperson Justin Finestone says in the layoffs,  two of those people worked in facilities, and one in City Hall. The budget also cuts two vacant positions each in the Police and Fire Departments. He says the public can give input before the budget is adopted:  "We're having what we call an open line with the Bend City Council. The Council about the budget about their priorities and what they would like to see the City doing to give that feedback to the Council, that Council can use in their budget deliberations." The Bend City Manager, Eric King presented his budget message to the budget committee Wednesday night. The two year budget needs to be approved and adopted by July 1st of this year and would run through June 30th 2013.
