Obie. <br /> I. ITEMS FROM MAYOR AND COUNCIL AND CITY MANAGER <br /> A. Air Pollution in Eugene <br /> Councilor Holmer said an article in The Register-Guard had made him wonder if <br /> the council should be considering ways to alleviate the pollution caused by <br />e automotive emissions and wood-burning stoves. <br /> Councilor Ehrman shared his concerns. <br /> B. Nominations to Budget Committee (memos distributed) <br /> Councilor Bascom said she has nominated Alan Contreras, who moved into her <br /> ward recently, for another three-year term on the Budget Committee. <br /> Councilor Wooten said she has nominated Shawn Boles for another three-year <br /> term on the Budget Committee. <br /> c. National League of Cities <br /> Councilor Schue reported on the recent National League of Cities meeting in <br /> Seattle. She said the message was loud and clear that cities are on their <br /> own. They will receive very little help from the Federal government. In <br /> some places, the State government may help cities, but she did not think it is <br /> realistic to expect that in Oregon. <br /> D. Recognition of Martin Luther King's Birthday <br /> Councilor Miller suggested the City cooperate with the University of Oregon in <br /> planning a community-wide celebration of Martin Luther King's birthday. <br /> Mr. Miller volunteered to serve on a committee to plan the event. Councilor <br /> Schue suggested the Minority Commission be contacted as to their plans for the <br />e event. <br /> MINUTES--Eugene City Council December 18, 1985 Page 1 <br />
