ITEMS FROM MAYOR AND COUNCIL, APPOINTMENTS, ANNOUNCEMENTS, AGENDA ADJUSTMENTS <br /> A. Joint Housing Committee Position on Multi-Family Housing--Ms. Schue <br /> said the Joint Housing Committee is ready to discuss the multi-family <br /> housing issue as it pertains to future density at any time the Council <br /> wishes to do so. <br /> B. Revenue Measures on Ballot--Ms. Miller mentioned that the Revenue <br /> Task Force has not yet presented a report to the Council on whether <br /> to place the two revenue tax measures on the November ballot. She <br /> referred to the fact that Council had earlier tabled those two measures <br />e pendi ng that report. <br /> Ms. Miller moved, seconded by Mr. Lieuallen, to remove the measures <br /> from the table and bring back. Motion carried, all Councilors <br /> present voting aye except Mr. Hamel, Ms. Smith, and Mr. Obie <br /> voting no. <br /> Ms. Miller moved, seconded by Mr. Lieuallen, to table and inde- <br /> finitely postpone the two tax measures. <br /> Ms. Miller said it seems clear there is no way to get the measures on <br /> the November ballot. She thinks it is unfortunate because they were <br /> blocked by the actions of a minority, and that action will seriously <br /> impact next year's budget situation. She hopes the Task Force will <br /> still consider a variety of revenue sources and come up with helpful <br /> recommendations. <br /> Ms. Schue mentioned that the Council might want to give the Task <br /> Force more direction. Mr. Delay thinks the motion is a good one; he <br /> feels that it is unfortunate because of the increase it will mean in <br /> next year's budget and he hopes that the measures can be taken to the <br /> people eventually. <br /> Vote was taken on the motion, which carried unanimously. <br />e <br /> 5/3 9/19/79--1 <br />
