COAR Updates Septic-to-Sewer Advisory, City Hosts Forum 
Following the SE Bend Septic to Sewer Advisory Committee's recent recommendation to Council to cap hook-up costs to homeowners at $25,000, COAR has updated its Septic-to-Sewer Advisory Notice. Tonight, the City of Bend is also hosting a "listening session" to provide an update on the issue and gather public input. The Council is expected to decide on a mechanism for financing the project and the sharing of costs this fall. Though this issue is still developing, we wanted to ensure the advisory is up-to-date based on the current status of the city's Southeast Interceptor and Council processes. Watch COAR emails for updates on this issue.
