PUBLIC FORUM <br /> Mayor Obie welcomed those attending the meeting and said the council has a <br /> mandatory adjournment time of 10:30 p.m., unless extended by majority vote of <br /> the council. Mayor Obie said the public forum is an opportunity for people <br /> to express opinions and provide information to the council about issues that <br /> are not scheduled for council consideration. He said the council will not <br /> respond immediately to the concerns expressed in the public forum. <br /> e Bob Berkley, 2745-1/2 Lincoln Street, spoke as a representative of Oregonians <br /> for Clean Air, an organization whose objective Mr. Berkley described as the <br /> condemnation and cessation of field burning. Mr. Berkley presented a <br /> petition signed by 700 citizens to the council and asked for a response. He <br /> referred to a letter from the Mayor of Corvallis to the Governor which he <br /> said presented a reasonable position on the field burning issue. <br /> Mayor Obie responded that the City Council Legislative Committee is <br /> addressing the issue of field burning. Mayor Obie was unsure whether public <br /> hearings were scheduled. <br /> II. PUBLIC HEARING: ORDINANCE CONCERNING AN ALLEY VACATION REQUEST <br /> LOCATED BETWEEN 10TH AND 11TH AVENUES AND PEARL AND HIGH STREETS <br /> (SELCO CREDIT UNION) (AV 88-1) <br /> City Manager Micheal Gleason introduced the item. Jerry Jacobson, Planning <br /> Department staff, presented the staff report. Mr. Jacobson explained that <br /> Selco Credit Union requested the council's approval of an alley vacation to <br /> allow construction over the alley of a building corridor to link Selco's <br /> current structure with a planned office structure to be located north of the <br /> alley. Under the proposed vacating ordinance, the alley would continue to <br /> function as an access-way for use by the general public. <br /> e MINUTES--Eugene City Council November 7, 1988 Page 1 <br />
