<br /> I BE IT RESOLVED by the Budget Committee of the City of
<br /> Eugene that it shall go on record as endorsing and ap-
<br /> proving the conduct of the city administration during
<br /> Ii the past year.
<br /> ! The Committee further expresses confidence in the con-
<br /> I
<br /> I tinued management of the city's finances, and particu-
<br /> larily calls attention to the carefully prepared and
<br /> I orderly proposed budget and recommendations furnished
<br /> b~ the Recorder's office as being in harmony with an
<br /> Ii economy intelligently applied, and which we believe
<br /> II will secure for the city a maximum of benefits.
<br /> It was seconded and so ordered. The final meeting of the Budget Committee, upon
<br /> If motion made and seconded, vvas ad j ourned. Mayor Large expressed sincere apprecia-
<br /> 1 : tion for the help rendered by the citizen members of the committee. I

<br /> II. An Ordinance levying the annual tax levy for the city of Eugene for the city
<br /> of Eugene for the fiscal year of 1937 was read the first time and passed its secon
<br /> [I and third readings by title under suspension of the rule by the unanimous consent
<br /> l1i of the council and was placed upon its final passage. The ayes and nays were
<br /> cal}ed; councilmen voting aye, five; nay, none; absent, Reid, Simon and Zumwalt.
<br /> 2 I The ordinance was declared passed and numbered 8492.
<br /> At the request of Roy E. Morse, chairman of the Salvation Army drive, the
<br /> ~ity Recorder presented a letter addressed to the Council, asking for the sum of
<br /> $1200 to be used for relief of transients Bnd local cases. Dr. J. E. Richmond,
<br /> treasurer of the organization, believed that such a contribution would be worth-
<br /> while as it would relieve the Police Department, business men and residents of
<br /> II the worry occasioned when hungry, homeless and jobless men are in the community
<br /> with no provisions made for their temporary relief. It was pointed out that the
<br /> ,\ city of Marshfield had levied $600.00 for such a cause. Mr. Morse stated that the
<br /> I drive at the present time had yielded $1100.00 of its quota of $5000 and respect-
<br /> ;i fully requested the council's assistance in this matter. Councilman Lamb suggeste
<br /> 3 I that the Mayor place the entire problem in the hands of a committee to report at .
<br /> Ii the next meeting. Mayor Large referred the matter to the Finance Committee.
<br /> At this time Councilman Reid arrived.
<br /> I City Recorder read the communication from Mrs. William Mills, asking for
<br /> i waiver of seven years accumulated interest on pavement assessment, upon payment
<br /> jl of the unpaid balance of principal amounting to ~338.22. Mrs. Mills also made
<br /> 4 II a verbal plea. The matter was turned over to the Judiciary Committee and City
<br /> Attorney for consideration.
<br /> I
<br /> Glenn Byrne, present at the meeting, asked for permission to install 10,000
<br /> II gallon tanks for diesel oil; City Engineer Clubb pointed out that installing
<br /> II tanks of such proportion was not according to the specifications under the code,
<br /> /11 but inasmuch as the location was within the right zorJe, he therefore recommended
<br /> 5 ,I that a special permit be granted. On motion made and seconded, it was so ordered. I

<br /> :1 ~vfr . Harry Young, who asked the council at the last meeting for a five-year
<br /> 'I
<br /> II lease on the municipal airport, stated that he had not yet been consulted by
<br /> I members of the Airport Committee in regard to his re~uest. Chairman Hendershott
<br /> I did not believe that he should be forced to look up an unknown man when he had an
<br /> established business downtown and was available for consultation at all times.
<br /> J II Councilman Lamb suggested that Mr. Young and the Chairman of the ~irport Committee
<br /> come to some agreement as to the proposed lease. The matter was cut short of
<br /> 61 discussion pending action of the Airport Committee.
