1. ADJUSTMENTS TO THE AGENDA
2. PUBLIC COMMENTS
David Hoffman, Eugene, spoke on the demolition of the Extension Building. He commented that location is everything and the current Extension Office is centrally located and has adequate parking. He said there is adequate office space and storage. He commented that the Extension Service is there so people can have a direct face to face. He stated the reason the Extension levy failed was because too many people were under the influence of people in opposition. He added that they used misinformation and that person is on the Budget Committee. He indicated that people are opposed to new taxes but they would be willing to donate money toward the building. He stated that people are furious the Extension is going away as it is a main food resource and they want it to remain on the Fairgrounds.
3. COMMISSIONERS' RESPONSE TO PUBLIC COMMENTS AND/OR OTHER ISSUES AND REMONSTRANCE
Stewart indicated the public comment made was for the Board of Commissioners and he asked the comments be put in both these minutes and the Board of Commissionersí minutes.
Pothier reported that she visited half of the housing units and she was impressed with what she saw. She thought everyone should visit the housing units so they know what is going on. She visited three senior and disabled areas and gave a report on the housing units. She thought it was something they should be proud of, as they have a great housing agency and it is a positive thing for the community.
