It was a packed Deschutes County Planning Commission meeting Thursday night.

 

Homeowner Tom Hignell, who lives along the canal was there and said "follow the money."

 

"Here's what COID really wants, they say public safety, saving the fish and keeping rates low for customers is why they're doing it.   These are the issues that they wrap thesmelves around.  They want to increase the head presure for their hydro electric plant.  They want to make more money.  The public that is buying this is being duped.  The COID move is not for health and safety. It's a smoke screen.  It's all about money."

 

COID officials say they only plan to pipe 25 miles of its 450 miles of canals.  They say piping them is very expensive and they had to borrow money to do it and hydro-electric power will help them pay for it.

 

The Planning Commission failed to make a recommendation after Thursday night's meeting.  They are giving the public another two weeks to make comments.  They plan to make a final decision at their next meeting March 27th.
