ITEMS FROM THE CITY COUNCIL, MAYOR, AND CITY MANAGER <br /> A. Accessibility of the Shelton-McMurphey House <br /> Ms. Ehrman said the steering committee for the Shelton-McMurphey House <br /> recommended to the Lane County Board of Commissioners that a lift be <br />e installed in the Shelton-McMurphey House to make it accessible to the <br /> disabled. Members of Eugene's Commission on the Rights of People with <br /> Disabilities have asked the County Commissioners to consider installing a <br /> ramp instead because they feel lifts are problematic. The Cou~ty <br /> Commissioners have delayed a decision until they have more information. Ms. <br /> Ehrman said the house will not be accessible in time for the Eugene <br /> Celebration. <br /> B. City Support for International Track City Classic <br /> Mr. Green said the International Track City Classic is a fine event and was a <br /> huge success this year. He said he would like the event to continue in this <br /> community and wants the City to increase its contribution to the event, if <br /> possible. <br /> C. Willamette Science and Technology Center (WISTEC) <br /> Ms. Schue said WISTEC was forced to close because of financial difficulties. <br /> She and Ms. Bascom asked for council approval of staff work on possible ways <br /> the City could help support WISTEC. Ms. Bascom emphasized that council <br /> approval would be only for the staff work and would not be a commitment of <br /> funding to WISTEC. Ms. Bascom said she would also like the council to <br /> consider a request for emergency funding at a separate meeting. Councilors <br /> gave approval for preliminary staff work on ways to support WISTEC and agreed <br /> to hear a report based on this information. <br />e MINUTES--Eugene City Council August 9, 1989 Page 1 <br />
