BEND, Ore. (AP) - The city of Bend will consider whether to pay more for the damage caused to residents’ homes by flooding from a broken water main.

The Bend Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1She31U) council members and the city’s insurer initially agreed to pay for removing water as well as sanitizing and drying homes along the flooded street.

Some residents are facing thousands of dollars in repairs and have said they’re considering a lawsuit against the city if it doesn’t agree to cover what its insurance carrier will not.

City Manager Eric King said in an email to residents whose homes were affected by the flooding that council members will reconsider the issue in August.
