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 Reply Reply 1 sandra zollman 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. Reply Reply CB Wrong, they vote for what the majority of Bend citizens want. You just aren't the majority. sandra zollman Three garbage price increases in under two years, want a 10-15.00 water/sewer increase and a raise for themselves. Absolutely not. sandra zollman It would appear that CB is actually a city councilor. 1 sandra zollman 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.
