The Bend Police Department spends approximately 111-thousand dollars a year responding to false alarms and the council is deciding what to do.
Some want to impose fines on those who call out police to false alarms.
Councilor Jim Clinton thinks residents should get a warning the first time it happens.
Last month the council was evenly divided on whether to impose these fines.
Tonight all seven members are expected to be at the meeting to break the tie.
