<br />ORDINANCE NO. 20223 <br /> <br />AN ORDINANCE ADOPTING THE 2001 HAZARDOUS <br />SUBSTANCE TRACKING INSTRUCTIONS. <br /> <br />The City Council of the City of Eugene finds that: <br /> <br />A. Amendment IV to the Eugene Charter of 1976 was adopted at the general election <br />on November 5, 1996 (the "Amendment"). The Amendment provides in part that hazardous <br />substance users in Eugene shall file an annual materials balance report that lists inputs and outputs <br />of all hazardous substances obtained, used or generated. By Ordinance No. 20112 adopted by the <br />Council and approved by the Mayor on April 6, 1998, by Ordinance No. 20137 adopted by the <br />Council and approved by the Mayor on December 7, 1998, and by Ordinance No. 20188 adopted <br />by the Council and approved by the Mayor on February 28,2000, the City Council adopted the 1998, <br />1999 and 2000 Hazardous Substance Reporting Forms and Instructions, respectively. <br /> <br />B. The Toxics Board has reviewed the 1998, 1999 and 2000 Instructions, and developed <br />the 2001 Hazardous Substance Tracking Instructions for reports due April 1, 2002. The 2001 <br />Instructions are substantially the same to the 2000 Instructions, except that they contain additional <br />reportable chemicals which were added by Administrative Order as authorized by Council. <br /> <br />C. Like the Instructions for prior years, the 2001 Instructions include numerous <br />provisions that simply describe explicit provisions of Amendment IV; some interpretations of the <br />Amendment; and some provisions that are necessary to implement the Amendment in a practicable <br />manner but which are not expressly contained in the Amendment. The Toxics Board has <br />recommended that the Council adopt the 2001 Instructions. <br /> <br />D. The Council approves the 2001 Instructions as being consistent with the terms and <br />intent of Amendment IV and House Bill 2431 adopted by the Oregon Legislature in the 1999 <br />legislative session. The Council intends by this ordinance to adopt the 2001 Instructions as binding <br />on those persons covered by its terms. <br /> <br />E. The Council adopts this ordinance pursuant to its authority under both section 4 of <br />the Eugene Charter of 1976 and Article X of Amendment IV to the Charter. <br /> <br />THE CITY OF EUGENE DOES ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS: <br /> <br />Ordinance - 1 <br />
