I NTRODUCTI ONS <br /> Ms. Wooten, taking the place of Mayor Keller, said the purpose of the meeting <br /> was for the members and staff to become better acquainted, to examine ways in <br /> which they could cooperate on programs and resources, and to explore ways in <br /> which they can do those things more efficiently. She introduced the members of <br /> the City Council and staff. <br /> Mr. Gleason said he and Dr. Lindquist have worked together on zoning and leasing <br /> matters. The City has enjoyed the benefits of cooperation on Lincoln School. <br /> Mr. Gleason added that he and Dr. Lindquist were in a similiar tax situation. <br /> They are taking the same property tax. They have a list of problems and <br />e suggestions that could be explored together. <br /> Mr. Billings, chair of the school board, introduced the school board members, <br /> staff, and Dr. Lindquist. <br /> Dr. Lindquist thanked the City for inviting the school board for a mutual <br /> problem-solving session. He said their financial problems will continue, and it <br /> will take creativity and cooperation to overcome those problems. The institu- <br /> tions are supported by the same tax dollar from the same people. Dr. Li ndqui st <br /> supported discussion of issues such as: the future use of properties (Lincoln, <br /> Dunn, Monroe Street); community school program merged with the neighborhood <br /> program; use of a common grounds crew (parks and school yards often join); <br /> development of a common phone system; cooperation in purchasing; cooperation in <br /> future planning and acquisition. Dr. Lindquist urged members to put together a <br /> joint task force to report back to the board and council. <br /> II. CITY AND SCHOOL STAFF PRESENTATION <br /> Mr. Drapela showed slides of examples of city/school cooperation and shared <br /> resources. He gave out a draft copy of the Parks Plan and referred to pages <br /> 29 and 92. He said the schools now serve 25% of Eugene households.
