W. Hamel, Eric Haws, Scott Lieuallen, Brian Obie, Emily Schue, <br /> Gretchen Miller, and Jack Delay. <br /> 1. ITEMS FROM MAYOR AND COUNCIL, APPOINTMENTS, <br /> ANNOUNCEMENTS, AGENDA ADJUSTMENTS <br /> A. Citizen Involvement Committee Meeting <br /> Ms. Schue stated that at their meeting last week, the Citizen <br /> Involvement, Committee discussed distributing information on the <br /> Metro Plan Update Report by requesting EWEB to include material <br /> with its monthly billings which would inform citizens about <br /> scheduled meetings and additional information regarding the update <br /> process. Staff advises it would be appropriate for Council to <br /> request that action of EWEB. <br /> e Ms. Schue moved, seconded by Ms. Smith, that Council <br /> request the Board of Directors of EWEB to include <br /> information in their mailouts on the Metro Plan Update. <br /> Motion carried unanimously. <br /> B. Parks Advisory Board <br /> Mr. Obie mentioned that, some time ago, the Council talked about the <br /> creation of a public Parks Advisory Board. The Council requested that <br /> a report be brought back by the Joint Parks Committee on the possible <br /> function of this committee to include more citizen participation. He <br /> has seen no obvious momentum to date on that project, and would like <br /> to encourage an effort to move that issue, as well as the issue of the <br /> Emerald Canal, from the back burner to a higher priority. He sa i d a <br /> written report some time down the road would be fine. Assistant <br /> Manager said staff is not prepared to give a report on either item at <br /> present. He added that there have been proposals indicating that <br /> the Emerald Canal project be discussed through the budget process. <br /> C. Small Business Administration Loans <br /> Mr. Lieuallen noted receipt of a copy of a memo to Human Rights <br /> Specialist Kent Gorham from the City Manager commending him for his <br /> leadership in bringing SBA dollars to minority businesses in the <br /> e community in the amount of $1,114,400. It is one example of very <br /> positive results due to the human rights commissions' activities. <br /> 10/17/79--1 <br /> 5'b <br />
