PERS has a significant impact on school budgets as well a other levels of government across Oregon.

 

The Bend Chamber of Commerce is holding a Town Hall Friday with a panel of speakers including Bend La Pine School Superintendent Ron Wilkinson to address how the future of education will be affected.

 

"What’s the big picture? A little bit in terms of how we got where we are with PERS today. And look at specifically at the impacts to local school districts and the cities and counties. And then Senator Knopp will summarize where the legislature is; what kind of legislation is being considered and what kinds of possibilities there are in terms of passing the reform that's needed in this session."

 

Deschutes County Commissioner Alan Unger, School Board Member Cheri Helt and State Senator Tim Kanopp of Bend will also be on the panel.

 

The Town Hall is Friday at 7:30 a.m. at the Bend Golf and Country Club.  Contact the Bend Chamber of Commerce for reservations and information.
