Mr. Miller indicated that he will write a letter to the Governor on <br /> behalf of the council encouraging the State to offer financial assistance to <br /> WISTEC as well. <br /> B. Initiative Measure to Presidents Council <br /> Ms. Bascom said that at the November 20 public hearing the council made a <br /> decision to send the proposed initiative petition measure to the Citizen <br /> Involvement Committee for review.

Mr. Miller remarked that this issue <br /> should be given serious consideration because members of these neighborhood <br /> groups are not council-appointed. Ms. Schue said that although she is not <br /> opposed to this idea, the council needs to discuss the extent of involvement <br /> that such citizen groups will have in council activities before referring <br /> decisions to them. Ms. Ehrman added that these groups should also be <br /> directed to inform the council of their expectations about the role they <br /> should play with respect to involvement in council activities. <br /> C.
