Bend City Manager Eric King says the PERS reform law (Senate Bill 822) that passed this session should save the city 1.3 million in pension costs during the next two years.
But much of that savings is reached by postponing a PERS payment, so King says they will probably not spend it. Another effort was to bring more local control early on to land use planning-
"To try to provide more clarity - when people want to appeal a land use process - the bill didn't go through but we did get a "budget note" so the state agency has to consider that -- It's very frustrating for the city to take something to take it forward- and then people raise it at the end of the line- and we could've addressed it earlier and at the local level -- and that can really bog down the process."
King says lawmakers also paved the way for cities to access state money for special transportation projects other than state highways.

City Manager Eric King gives an update BEND'S CITY MANAGER TALKS ABOUT THE 2013 SESSION'S IMPACT ON THE CITY...
The 2013 session is one for the history books - but now the impacts of those laws will soon be felt. Bend City Manager Eric King says the PERS reform law (Senate Bill 822) that passed this session should save the city 1.3 million in pension costs during the next two years.
But much of that savings is reached by postponing a PERS payment, so King says they will probably not spend it. Another effort was to bring more local control early on to land use planning-

Bend City Manager Eric King said the city is absolutely not attempting to block future councils and, indeed, future councils will still make decisions about what kind of filtration system to build to ensure the city's surface water is clean. Future councils will also decide on whether to build a hydropower plant to capture the energy of water flowing through the pipe.
King added that the city council made the decision to move forward with installing the pipe several months ago but was unable to obtain a special use permit from the Forest Service to begin work until now because of appeals to the project.
"The election cycle is not driving this," said King. "We are not rushing to complete [the project]."
He said that the city has weighed the risks and determined that it could be more expensive to wait to do the project because the city has a contract with a company named Mortenson Construction to lay the pipe for a maximum price now, he said. That maximum price is $23.3 million according to court documents.
"Our job as staff is to analyze risk and present that to council," said King.
...
The city has now gotten an extension of that deadline to 2014, said King.
