The affected neighbgorhoods in southeast Bend used to be served by Juniper Utility, until the city took it over in 2001.


Homeowners Kathleen Kiefer will be making a presentation.  She says homeownes are concerned about the exorbitant expenses to switch over.  She says many can't afford it.


"But the bottom line is the four neighbhoods in this area are modest with the exception of one.  The estimated demographics are 70 percent of the people are seniors or elderly people on a fixed income.  We're very concerned the ability to stay in homes and afford the water bills during the irrigation season."


The affected neighborhoods are expected to hook up to the city's water system by the spring of 2015.
