ITEMS FROM THE CITY COUNCIL, MAYOR, AND CITY MANAGER <br /> A. Returned Peace Corps Volunteers' 1990 Conference <br /> Mr. Boles announced that Eugene has been chosen to host the 1990 Conference <br /> of returned Peace Corps Volunteers. Eugene competed with approximately 200 <br /> other municipalities to host the conference. The event, which is likely to <br />e draw between 1,200 and 1,500 people to the community, will be held July <br /> 20-22. Mr. Holmer was also excited about the conference, which he described <br /> as an important event in Eugene's destination-point efforts. He commended <br /> the Eugene/Springfield Convention and Visitors Bureau for its role in <br /> persuading the national board to choose Eugene as a site for this conference. <br /> B. Support for Housing Now! March <br /> Mr. Boles reminded councilors of a previous endorsement of the Housing Now! <br /> march to be held in Washington, D.C. on October 27. When councilors <br /> discussed the issue earlier, they discussed the possibility of paying for the <br /> attendance of a City representative. Mr. Boles said that as of yet, no City <br /> representative intends to attend the march, but the council has received a <br /> request of support for a van from Catholic Community Services which would <br /> take eight or nine community members to the march. Catholic Community <br /> Services estimates that it will cost approximately $1,000 to make the trip <br /> and has requested that the City contribute $500 from its Contingency Fund. <br /> Mr. Boles moved, seconded by Mr. Bennett, that the City <br /> Council authorize staff to negotiate a contract for $500 with <br /> Catholic Community Services to support the van attending the <br /> Housing Now! march. <br />e MINUTES--Eugene City Council September 27, 1989 Page 1 <br />
