I. CALL MEETING TO ORDER

Del Phelps called the meeting to order.

II. PUBLIC COMMENT

Laurie Cracraft, 2819 Alder, Eugene, urged Lane County to continue their contribution to the Intergovernmental Human Services Commission, stating that a 10 percent reduction would result in reducing the Senior Outreach allocation by $43,000. She stated that this would create an additional deficit of $17,000 and would mean eliminating outreach services in the Veneta community and an across-the-board reduction in staff hours and services. Cracraft remarked that if Lane County contributes full funding to the Intergovernmental Human Services Committee, this senior outreach program would be restored. She reviewed the services provided by the Senior Outreach Program.
