Tuesday, August 30th, Noon, at Juniper Golf Course
$15 - Please RSVP

Deschutes County Commissioners will discuss local issues and answer questions during the Redmond Chamber of Commerce State of the County luncheon on August 30, 2016, at Juniper Golf Course in Redmond.  The noon event is open to the public, with lunch costing $15 per person.  RSVP’s are required. 

Commissioners Tammy Baney, Alan Unger and Tony DeBone will each take a turn speaking at the event, which will focus on the successes of the past year while addressing opportunities and challenges for the coming year.  Likely topics include economic development, the 9-1-1 radio project and provide an update on marijuana regulations., etc. – topics relevant to the county in general and the Redmond area specifically.

Those in attendance will be given an opportunity to address additional subjects, as well, during a question-and-answer session following the presentations.

“We’re honored to host our Deschutes County Commissioners in a forum that’s both open and informative – where citizens can learn about county topics relevant to the Redmond area while engaging in a dialog with our leaders,” said Eric Sande, executive director of the Redmond Chamber of Commerce & CVB.  “I look forward to learning about Deschutes County’s vision for the future now that we’re once again facing growth.”

According to Tom Anderson, County Administrator, the commissioners have been involved in similar events in the county, including a recent Bend Chamber of Commerce State of the Community event.

“The biggest piece of this is letting community members ask the tough questions and the transparent questions during the Q and A sessions toward the end,” Anderson said.  He added that a humorous “Deschutes County Top 10 List” will round out the event.

Attendees are encouraged to RSVP for the Redmond Chamber State of the County luncheon by Tuesday, August 23, 2016.  Contact Karen Sande, Redmond Chamber Events Director, at 541-923-5191 or
