<br />e existing ordinance. He said the motion was necessary for a clear <br />understanding of possible outcomes, adding that the issue would be <br />revisited later. <br /> <br />Ms. Schue and Mr. Holmer said they agreed that a clear understanding of <br />possible election outcomes was needed and that it seemed logical to <br />repeal the ordinance if both proposals failed. <br /> <br />Ms. Wooten said she thought the council last Wednesday had reached <br />consensus to prepare a second ordinance for referral to voters. She said <br />she felt that preparation of a repeal ordinance was a strong and serious <br />issue, and she did not support it in the event that both measures failed. <br />She said that if both measures failed, she thought the ordinance should <br />rema in as passed by voters, and the council was back to II square oneil in <br />terms of fixing it. She said she did not support the request to City <br />Attorneys and she thought it was inappropriate to imply a possibility <br />that the City would be left with no Nuclear Free Zone ordinance. <br /> <br />Mayor Obie said the request had been supported by at least two <br />councilors, and the council would have future opportunities to address <br />the issue. He added that the council was not voting on that issue <br />tonight. <br /> <br />e <br /> <br />Mr. Holmer said he agreed that possible results and impact should be <br />clear to voters, adding that he supported the Mayorls request as <br />providing more clarity than if the current ordinance remained in place. <br /> <br />Ms. Schue said the impact of the vote needed to be clear, and she did not <br />favor a process that would encourage supporters of the original ordinance <br />to vote ag~_i_nst both proposals. <br /> <br />Ms. Wooten said repeal and replacement provisions would be included in <br />both measures. Mr. Sercombe said that was correct. <br /> <br />Mr. Holmer moved, seconded by Ms. Bascom, to direct the City <br />Attorneyls Office to prepare documents referring to the voters <br />Nuclear Free Zone Ordinance proposals A and C as presented at <br />this meeting for the May 17 primary election ballot. Roll call <br />vote; the motion carried, 6:1, with Councilors Holmer, Bascom, <br />Bennett, Miller, Schue, and Wooten voting aye; Councilor Ehrman <br />voting nay. <br /> <br />A member of the audience asked why the council had held no public hearing <br />on the Nuclear Free Zone Ordinance. Mayor Obie said tonight was not a <br />public hearing, and questions from the audience were out of order. <br /> <br />e <br /> <br />MINUTES--Eugene City Council <br /> <br />January 11, 1988 <br /> <br />Page 2 <br />
