<br />.. <br /> M I NUT E S <br />e EUGENE CITY COUNCIL <br /> October 24, 1979 <br /> Adjourned meeting from October 17, 1979, of the City Council of the City of <br /> Eugene, Oregon, was called to order by His Honor Mayor Gus Keller at 11:45 a.m., <br /> October 24, 1979, Council Chamber, with the following Councilors present: Jack <br /> Delay, Betty Smith, D. W. Hamel, Eric Haws, Scott Lieuallen, Brian Obie, Gretchen <br /> Miller, and Emily Schue. <br /> I. ITEMS FROM MAYOR AND COUNCIL, APPOINTMENT-S, ANNOUNCEMENTS, AGENDA ADJUSTMENTS <br /> A. Sewage Treatment Plant Funding--Ms. Smith referred to recent articles <br /> in the newspaper regarding funding for the sewage treatment plant. <br /> She said a task force of Metro Wastewater Commission members has been <br /> appointed to deal with options, focusing on the notion of a one-plant <br /> treatment facility. She will keep Council informed of progress. <br /> B. Appointments--Mayor Keller has nominated Linda Bennett, 3900 Langton, <br /> Eugene, to fill a vacancy on the Employment and Training Advisory <br />e Committee. Also, Rosemary Batori has submitted her resignation from <br /> the Women's Commission. Robin Casey, first alternate, should be <br /> appointed to fill the unexpired term. <br /> Mr. Delay moved, seconded by Ms. Smith, to confirm the nomination <br /> of Linda Bennett to the Employment and Training Advisory Committee <br /> and Robin Casey to fill the unexpired term of Rosemary Batori on <br /> the Women's Commission. Motion carried unanimously. <br /> C. Lighting On Eugene Mall--Assistant Manager said that the Downtown <br /> Development Board has requested modifications to the lighting on <br /> the Eugene Mall. A subcommittee has been studying alternatives and <br /> developing proposals to reduce energy costs on the mall and enhance <br /> the lighting level for the winter months. An adjustment to the Parks <br /> Department budget in the amount of $9,000 will be on the October 31 <br /> Council agenda, should Council deem the lighting modifications appro- <br /> priate. Incandescent lighting fixtures on the alleyways approaching <br /> the mall would be converted to fluorescent lights to enhance the <br /> lighting level and reduce energy costs. On the mall, mercury vapor <br /> side-cast lights would also be installed. This project is experimental, <br /> as there has been some concern about aesthetics and foot-candle levels <br /> that will exist with these modifications. The lighting will be <br /> adjusted in the alleyways first. <br />. <br /> 57'i 10/24/79--1 <br />
