BEND, OR -- Currently Bend has seventeen citizen committees. But are they effective? Should we continue them? That is the focus of Thursday's City Club of Central Oregon. Bend City Councilor Sally Russell will be on the panel. "Does it make sense for two and a half years, should this technical process even involve the community? Should they be invovled or not? My answer is if you can bring the costs down from 130 million to 90 million, I say absolutely."
Fellow Bend City Councilor Nathan Boddie and Redmond City Manager Keith Witcosky will also be on the panel.
