Only professionals with experience should get paid. All on the current council are basically activists with their own personal agenda, none of them has experience and it shows at what they're spending our tax $$ on! If it's to much work they volunteered for then get more council members to join

No. They make decisions based on their personal agendas without a vote of the people. There's to much spending and property tax increases already without boosting their salaries. They passed an unnecessary environmental impact home inspection without the vote of citizens.

Wrong, they vote for what the majority of Bend citizens want. You just aren't the majority.

Three garbage price increases in under two years, want a 10-15.00 water/sewer increase and a raise for themselves. Absolutely not.

It would appear that CB is actually a city councilor.

No. I don't want my taxes going up anymore to pay for it and they make decisions based on their personal agendas without a vote of the people. The ridiculous environmental impact home inspection is a prime example. They are supposed to serve not reign. Totalitarian attitude.

Isn't it pretty part-time work? I think they only have a few meetings per month.

They work a lot outside of those two meetings.

Why don't you run, Gabe? If Oregon is too liberal for you, I'm sure Arkansas or some other red state would welcome you with open arms.

Do you think these new rules will help reduce e-bike accidents?

Obviously, if kids who shouldn't be riding these bikes cannot ride them to school, that represents hours of the day that they won't be on them, being reckless, violating basic rules of the road, and putting lives, including theirs, in danger.

I have a business literally across the street from their office/dump location and still get consistently missed on recycling. I have been missed regularly on garbage as well. The city has the ability to pull their contract if this continues.

I live in Crook County. We went a whole month without recycle pick up. The service is always on FB because of inconsistent service. We went two weeks with no garbage pickup. It's like this all over the city as well as out of city limits! VERY FRUSTRATING when you're paying for a service!

LOL. In Crooked River Ranch - we don't know what 'recycling' is. The garbage company totally did away with it. So - I feel no sympathy for some of you who have 'delays'.
