Bend, OR -

Expensive bills have prompted an effort to recall four board members of the local water district in Terrebonne.

The Bulletin newspaper reports that residents behind the recall say they have received no explanation for why summer water bills were at least three times higher than normal.

To force a vote, the group has until mid-April to collect 57 signatures from Terrebonne residents.

In a statement to the newspaper, board member Kay Walters said the board and the water district's two full-time employees are working hard to replace needed equipment and purchase a more efficient meter reading system.

Terrebonne is 23 miles north of Bend.
