The committee put together to come up with a future plan met last Friday.

 

They know they want to keep the dam, but it has to be affordable.

 

Bend City Councilor Mark Capell says there are several more decision to be made.

 

"The cost is a big issue and we have to figure out how much Pacific Power will have to pay and if any additional money needed and where it will come from as well. Also, what it will finally look like is still to be decided.  The key right now is patience. This isn't going to happen quickly because there's still a lot of work to be done."

 

The commitee decided to hire an independent engineering firm to give them cost estimates on repairing the dam to run for another ten or fifty years.
