DISCUSSION OF BALLOTING TO DETERMINE INTERVIEWEES FOR DOWNTOWN <br /> COMMISSION, PLANNING COMMISSION, AND THE EUGENE-SPRINGFIELD <br /> METROPOLITAN PARNERSHIP OPENINGS <br /> Mayor Obie said the balloting to determine interviewees was scheduled as the <br /> last item on the agenda for the council's meeting later in the evening at 7:30 <br /> p.m. <br /> Ms. Wooten suggested that the council postpone balloting for the Downtown <br /> Commission opening and solicit more applications for a couple of weeks. <br />e Because only three applications have been submitted, Ms. Wooten said she would <br /> like to have a broader variety of applicants from which to choose. <br /> Mr. Bennett said that only three applications was somewhat of a low response, <br /> and that he would not object to soliciting additional applications for a <br /> couple of weeks. <br /> Ms. Ehrman said she did not have a strong opinion on the matter. <br /> Mr. Holmer said the three applicants seemed worthy of being interviewed. He <br /> said he was not sure what policy could be used to justify postponing the <br /> ba 11 ot i ng . <br /> Mr. Miller, Ms. Bascom, and Mr. Rutan did not express strong opinions on this <br /> matter. <br /> Mayor Obie said one option would be to interview the three applicants; then, <br /> if councilors feel a need to solicit additional applications, this could be <br /> considered. <br /> Ms. Bascom said the three Metro Partnership members have served only two one- <br /> year terms; rather than interviewing applicants, the council should reappoint <br /> these three members. <br />e MINUTES--Eugene City Council October 26, 1987 Page 1 <br />
