Additionally, in an effort to ensure the information <br />provided by the task force is objective and impartial, the City and the County agree <br />that the facilitator will be the party primarily responsible for developing and <br />delivering the end work product, with the support and assistance of City, County <br />and State Court staff. <br />To fill the role of independent facilitator, the city manager and county administrator <br />have agreed to engage the services of Cameron McCarthy Landscape Architecture <br />Page 2 of 4 <br />S160920-JEO.docx <br /> <br />
