<br /> e M I NUT E S <br /> Eugene City Council <br /> McNutt Room--City Hall <br /> September 13, 1989 <br /> 11 : 30 a. m . <br /> COUNCILORS PRESENT: Ruth Bascom, Rob Bennett, Shawn Boles, Emily Schue, <br /> Debra Ehrman, Freeman Holmer, Bobby Green, Roger <br /> Rutan. <br /> The adjourned meeting of September 11, 1989, of the Eugene City Council was <br /> called to order by Mayor Jeff Miller. <br /> 1. ITEMS FROM THE CITY COUNCIL, MAYOR, AND CITY MANAGER <br /> A. New City Park <br /> Ms. Schue announced that Eugene may get a new park on Shasta Loop, along the <br /> Ridgeline Trail. A piece of property that has been used as an informal park <br /> for several years is currently for sale. One citizen in the area is <br /> e particularly interested in the park and is committed to raising enough <br /> private funds to purchase the property. Ms. Schue said the Joint Parks <br /> Committee will be discussing this issue soon. <br /> B. Parking Meters in the Overpark <br /> Mr. Boles said he has been contacted by downtown area merchants who are <br /> displeased with the enforcement of parking meters in the Overpark. He said <br /> patrons are being ticketed when they are only a few minutes late and are <br /> beginning to complain to merchants about the strict enforcement. Mr. Boles <br /> asked for a report on why the City chose to install meters in the Overpark <br /> rather than using attendant parking as originally planned. He felt that <br /> attended parking would have solved this problem and would have added a <br /> measure of security to the parking garage. <br /> C. Garbage Rate Increases <br /> Mr. Holmer submitted to the Mayor copies of a memorandum from himself <br /> pertaining to the administrative rules for garbage collection, a list of <br /> suggested changes to the rules, and a letter from the president of a local <br /> sanitary service indicating that he did not approve of the rate increase for <br /> a 90-gallon roll cart. Mr. Holmer expressed concern that a legal notice in <br /> The Register-Guard had falsely indicated that the local sanitary service <br /> providers had approved the rules. <br /> e MINUTES--Eugene City Council September 13, 1989 Page 1 <br />
