Deschutes County Commissioners discussed local issues and answered questions during the Redmond Chamber of Commerce State of the County luncheon on August 31, 2017, at Juniper Golf Course in Redmond. The event was open to the public.
Those in attendance were 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.
