BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioners will present the State of the County, Tuesday, at a joint event with the Bend Chamber of Commerce. Commissioner Tony DeBone says they’ll talk about key issues, like marijuana regulations, growth and the budget, as well as how the county benefits from the state transportation package, "It’s the big picture of transportation, maintaining roads. House Bill 2017 last year, from the state Legislature, gives us a path with more resources to do more traffic safety improvements and capacity improvements. So, really kind of looking a little bit backwards but also forwards on these big picture items."


They’ll also have a little fun in the now-famous Deschutes County Top 10 List, which DeBone says doesn’t get finalized until just beforehand, "It’s kind of ‘seat of the pants.’ It’ll come together and it’s always amazing to see what topics kind of pop up and wind up and end up in there. But, it’s always evolving until the last minute because oh, the next idea comes."

The State of the County is Tuesday evening at 10 Barrel East Side Pub. Tickets are available online at the Bend Chamber’s website
