The City of Bend is seeking agreed-upon policies and guiding principles for review and adjustment of the City’s water, wastewater and stormwater rates. In the first phase of outreach to the public, the City of Bend will use the online forum, Bend Voice, so the community can participate in the discussion around utility rate policy.
