About this event

With 17 citizen committees and more on the way, it’s time for Bend to evaluate its committee system. What role do committees serve? Are they efficient, transparent, and accountable? Do they encourage citizen input? How do they assimilate technical information? Who controls the information disseminated to the committees? As between committees, council, and staff, who is minding who? How do other cities make decisions? Can improvements to the committee system be made? Who is running City government?
