Bend Police Chief to Present New Budget Proposal

Bend Police Chief Mike Krantz will be presenting his proposed police budget to the City Council tomorrow night. It's his first budget request since coming on board in July from the Portland Police Bureau, and he's asking for eight additional staffers. The $69 million dollar 2 year budget Krantz is asking the council to approve includes funding for an officer dedicated to homeless outreach in the city, a communications staffer, a child abuse detective, two new school resource officers that will be partially funded by the schools, and a technician to support the new body cams coming to the department by the summer.

Neighbors Pitch In to Help Residents Displaced By Duplex Fire in Redmond

A Go Fund Me account has been set up by neighbors to help the Redmond residents who lost their home over the weekend. It was half of a residential duplex on Metolius Avenue. Fire officials say the blaze was tied to the improper storage of smoking materials. No one was in either side of the duplex at the time. One side of the duplex is a total loss, with damage estimates around $175 thousand dollars.


Deschutes and Crook Counties Among 15 in Oregon Moving Out of Extreme Risk

Deschutes and Crook Counties return to the "High Risk" level for Covid from "Extreme Risk" on Friday.  Jefferson County will remain at "High Risk".  Some of the indoor dining and business restrictions will be adjusted, though Governor Brown is begging Oregonians not to let their guard down.

Pacific Power is building a new training facility and consolidated service center in Bend. The new facility will be in the Juniper Ridge Industrial and Business Park in northeast Bend, and will consolidate the operations of three offices that are now spread throughout the Bend area. The goal is to enhance efficiency with one centralized center where new and current employees can be trained. The facility will go up on 17 acres and will serve as the base for about 70 employees in the area.

Covid Numbers Point to Schools as Cause of Recent Spike in Oregon

Oregon State Epidemiologist Dr. Dean Sidelinger says most of the recent spike in Covid cases statewide can be traced to kids returning to school. He says only three percent of Covid cases are tied to restaurants and bars in the state - despite the tighter dining restrictions imposed by the Governor. Of the 257 new outbreaks during the last week in Oregon, Dr. Sidelinger says 30 percent were attributed to single case outbreaks associated with schools, 12 percent were attributed to two or more case outbreaks associated with schools, and four and a half percent of cases were attributed to recreational sports and sports teams.
