City of North Bend release – The ballot measure recently approved by the citizens of North Bend cut $785,000 from the Public Safety budget. The ballot measure combined with a currently pending lawsuit against the City of North Bend over the Public Safety Fee resulted in the City considering a limitation of police services at the beginning of this new fiscal year to the hours of 7:00 am to 11:00 pm, seven days a week in North Bend. This move would have eliminated police services in North Bend from 11:00 pm to 7:00 am. The City has consulted with other law enforcement agencies in the county and with the Coquille Indian Tribe about ways to provide police coverage in North Bend from 11:00 pm to 7:00 am. As a result of those consultations, and a contract for Public Safety services between the City and the Coquille Indian Tribe, the City has determined that it will be able to continue to provide coverage from 11:00 pm to 7:00 am on a daily basis to the citizens of North Bend.
