Prineville’s City Council will again discuss tonight how to resolve its nativity scene controversy. The City has struggled with how to allow a Christmas display downtown, without getting the City sued for allowing a religious display. Mayor Bette Roppe says a private citizen has come up with a potential solution: “It really looks like a program is afoot to let a private citizen to do this without the City. And my personal opinion it is the best route to meet everyone's desires.” Bob Orlando is the one who approached Mayor Roppe. “I am going to make arrangement to have an appropriate space available for the nativity scene and Christmas display erect. I'm just going to take it upon myself to do it.” Attorneys believe this would absolve the City from responsibility and would not make them vulnerable to legal challenges. The Council will discuss the proposal at tonight's meeting.
