The Bend City Council invites the public to offer feedback and suggestions related to proposed charter amendments that could change the City’s governance structure. The Council is holding a public listening session starting at 5 p.m. on Wednesday Dec. 20, 2017, in Council Chambers at City Hall, 710 NW Wall Street. Bend City Council 2017-19 Goals include proposing charter amendments to voters to modernize and professionalize how City government operates. The City of Bend Charter establishes the governmental structure and procedures for the city. After months of analysis, a Council-appointed citizen Charter Review Committee recommended that the following charter changes be put to voters on the May 2018 ballot: • A directly elected mayor • Adoption of a ward system o Four councilors elected by wards and two councilors elected at large, or three at-large if an elected mayor is not approved • Removing mayor and council pay language from the charter with compensation to be established by an independent committee and adopted by ordinance

The City of Bend Fire Department recently wrapped up their second annual winter coat drive. Thanks to the generosity of our community, over 100 adult coats and 20 children's coats were collected at Bend Fire Stations then donated to the Bethlehem Inn. "Your heart goes out to somebody. Nobody deserves to be cold," said Mitch Webb, lead organizer and Bend Firefighter/Paramedic.

Purcell Boulevard lane closure starts Monday, Oct. 9
Beginning Monday, October 9, the northbound lane on Purcell Boulevard from Neff Road to Full Moon Drive will close for two to three months for construction of a much-needed sewer line.
The Neff / Purcell Sewer Line is the final phase of the Southeast Interceptor which has progressed along 27th Street. The Neff / Purcell Sewer Line website is here. The Neff / Purcell Sewer line segment connects the Southeast Interceptor to the existing sewer collection system.
The Southeast Interceptor will relieve sewer pipeline capacity issues around Bend, allow the City to decommission energy-consuming sewer pump stations and will create availability of gravity sewer service to some unsewered properties.
During construction of the Neff / Purcell Sewer Line, vehicles will be able to travel southbound on Purcell but parking will be restricted on Purcell within the work area to accommodate southbound traffic. Please drive carefully in this area and follow posted detour routes. See attached detour map.
The best access to St. Charles Bend will be off Neff Road at Williamson Court or Medical Center Drive.
The public is encouraged to seek additional information about our wastewater collection pipeline improvements at the Southeast Interceptor website www.bendoregon.gov/SEI or by calling our project hotline at 458-202-7349.
