Eugene Celebration <br /> Councilor Wooten reminded the council and those others present that the Eugene <br /> Celebration will have its first event, the Mayor's Invitational Fine Art Show, <br /> on September 23, 1983, in the Park Willamette Building, with a reception from <br /> 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. <br />e B. Local Government Expenditure Limitation <br /> Councilor Wooten said the Financial Planning Committee met on September 19, <br /> 1983, with a report from Steve Bauer, the executive director of the League of <br /> Oregon Cities, on the activities of the House-Senate Conference Committee in <br /> regard to the property tax refinance program. She said the Financial Planning <br /> Committee agreed in its concern with any proposal which creates a "stand-alone" <br /> local government expenditure limitation. She said the exemptions for local <br /> government property tax and other revenue-generating sources are narrow. She <br /> said she has composed a letter in cooperation with the League of Oregon Cities <br /> for submission to the Lane County delegation. She said the letter states that <br /> the council does not want the enactment of a local government expenditure <br /> 1 imitation either by statute, constitution, or referraol to the voters as a <br /> separate item from other menu proposal s. She circul ated the letter to the <br /> council for input and asked the council to take action on the letter later in <br /> the meeting. She said she has also spoken to Senators Hendriksen and Frye and <br /> will report on those conversations at a later time. <br /> C. Job Training Partnership Act <br /> Councilor Lindberg said he had just returned from a meeting of the National <br /> League of Ci ties. He said that unless the Appropriations Committee changes its <br /> mind, Eugene may be cut by 27 percent in its Job Training Partnership Act <br /> fundi ng. He said the council should contact Senator Hatfield, the chairman of <br /> the commi ttee. <br />e <br /> MINUTES--Eugene City Council September 21, 1983 Page 1 <br />
