All councilmen were present with the exception of pennington~~~ <br /> <br />2 The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved and the .~~ <br />meeting herewith called to order by Mayor Large. <br /> <br />Herschel Taylor addressed the council regarding the Civil Defense Fire <br />Fighting Reserves and Police Reserves. He stated that Eugene was much slower in <br />developing these reserves than the other towns in the state. He explained the <br />I government was asking for ten reserve policemen and firemen for each paid employee <br />in either department. He believed there would not be so m~ch difficulty in getting <br />police reserves but it seemed to be difficult to get the public to en'list for fire <br />reserves. He said these men should be young and physically fit and at the same <br />time not subject to call. Their duties would be either in or outside of the City <br />in case of necessity. The Goyernment had made no provision for payor compensation <br />in case of injury. There was some question as to whether these reserves should be <br />organized as part of the Police and Fire Departments, or if they would be a sep- <br />arate organization. The question was raised that if they were organized as a part <br />of the regular departments what would be the City's liability in case of an accident <br />Attorney Calkins said he was not prepared to state at this time how that matter <br />could be handled. It was the opinion of some of the council that the men would be <br />working for the govermnent and not the City and there would be no liability on the <br />City's part. Councilman Hawn thought, the council should render whatever weight <br />they could toward developing these reserves. Mr. Taylor explained it was necessary <br />for more publicity to be given this matter and the government requested that this <br />work be carried out. Mayor Large stated he was sure Chief Nusbaum and Chief Bergman <br />would be willing to do whatever they could in this matter. A motion was made and <br />seconded and carried that the council give whatever support they could toward this <br />3 work. <br /> <br />A request from G. T.
