BEND, OR -- A virtual meeting of the Bend City Council starts at 6-this evening. The city issued a declaration of a Local State of Emergency on March 13th. Communications Director Anne Aurand says they’ll revisit the issue again tonight and are expected to extend it beyond May 20th. She says the declaration means no water shutoffs due to the need to have everyone wash their hands. Aurand also says the declaration covers events and any permitted special event is canceled during the emergency. Tonight’s city council meeting will be live streamed on the City of Bend webpage.
