A recent phone call from Bend ...

A recent phone call from Bend City Manager Eric King to the head of the Deschutes River Conservancy to talk about the city's Bridge Creek water project has raised the suspicions of some of the project's critics.

King had heard from some of the nonprofit's board members that several DRC employees had collected signatures for a petition opposing the city's $68.2 million project. This concerned King because the DRC, a traditionally apolitical organization, hadn't taken a stance on the city's water project and, from what he understood, didn't intend to.
So King called DRC Executive Director Tod Heisler to find out if the nonprofit's employees were gathering signatures while on the clock and whether the nonprofit had indeed taken a position on the city's project.
...
Some city councilors say King was just doing his job, but to Weaver, at least, his call seemed heavy-handed.
...
Heisler verified what was said during his conversation with King and reiterated that the DRC hasn't changed its neutral stance on the city's water project.
...
King said Griffiths spoke to the DRC board members about the employees' actions. Griffiths could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
Weaver isn't the only person whose response to the surface water project elicited a phone call from King.
...
Shortly after an OSU-Cascades news release was sent out about the forum, Matt Shinderman, a senior instructor of natural resources at the college, received a phone call from King.
...
King also wanted to recommend people who should sit on the panel of experts who were slated to discuss the project.
King then told him, “I would hate for this to jeopardize the relationship between the city and OSU-Cascades.†Shinderman did not elaborate and refused to interpret the city manager's statement.
“It wasn't clear to me what he was trying to accomplish,†Shinderman said. “But I did feel it was interesting to be called as a private citizen by the city manager.â€
King said he called Shinderman because he didn't see him as a “neutral facilitator†and was concerned that the instructor was going to use the OSU-Cascades platform to discredit the city's water project. He said he meant to imply nothing further.
...
For the most part, the councilors said King has the responsibility to make sure the proper information about the city's project is available and that it isn't misrepresented. They said he also has the right to know who is a detractor, especially if it's an organization with which the city has been a partner.
