Ever wonder how the City budget works? How we fix our streets? What your utility payments go towards or what the police and fire departments are up to?

Simply give us a call and schedule a Bend 101 session for your organization or group. Bend 101 is a mini citizens academy designed to explain what the City does with your tax dollars and why. We'll even come to you when it's convenient for you.

Oh yeah, and it's free.


We can customize the program to fit your timeframe and interests. Bend 101 includes presentations on the subjects below. If you'd like a presentation on another area of the City, just ask.

To schedule a Bend 101 presentation, or for more information, call Anne Aurand at (541) 388-5573, or email
