ITEMS FROM MAYOR & COUNCIL, APPOINTMENTS, ANNOUNCEMENTS, AGENDA ADJUSTMENTS <br /> <br />A. City Appeal of County Land Use Decision <br /> <br />Councilor Obie questioned if the issue of the Lane County land use decision on <br />the application of David Whitus currently being appealed by the City had been <br />brought before the council. He requested that the issue be scheduled for <br />council discussion the following week. He also requested that the council <br />decide' if such appeals require council approval. City Attorney Tim Sercombe <br />stated that the notice of intent to appeal being filed with the Land Use Board <br />of Appeals (LUBA) was designed to preserve the right to appeal. He stated <br />that the need for council approval of such appeals was an issue of whether the <br />City Manager had charter authority in enforcing the ordinance in regard to the <br />appeal. He stated that a memorandum from the Planning Department on the <br />appeal will be distributed later in the week; the council will then have the <br />option of going into executive session the following week. In response to a <br />comment, Mr. Sercombe reviewed the appeal process time schedule. Mayor Keller <br />directed staff to schedule the item for council discussion on April 25. <br /> <br />Councilor Hansen had entered the meeting by this time. <br /> <br />B. Neighborhood Newsletters <br /> <br />Councilor Holmer stated that a City Council candidate was critical of a present <br />councilor for the use of a neighborhood newsletter in publishing a letter to the <br />constituents of that area. He stated the practice of councilors publishing <br />letters in that manner was commonplace. He asked that staff respond to the <br />criticism and inform the individual of the process by which letters from any <br />council candidate may be published in newsletters. Councilor Holmer stressed <br />that a balance of political views was sought for the newsletters and that the <br />criticism was unwarranted. <br /> <br />MINUTES--Eugene City Council <br /> <br />April 18, 1984 <br /> <br />Page 1 <br />
