Bill Van Vactor, County Administrator, noted that Item 11.a. was being moved to the June 8 agenda to be heard after the Public Hearing.




To be held later in the meeting.


a.    DISCUSSION/Customer Service and Information.

Rust reviewed his agenda memorandum (see material on file) and stated that he had written it one week before the election. He suggested that Lane County needs to modernize the way it relates to its customers. Rust suggested surveys, a newsletter, a new (phased-in) logo, and customer service training among possible methods for improving Lane County's image. He proposed presenting this as an agenda item at a Leadership Team meeting. Cornacchia indicated that he is interested in doing something and expressed his support of a discussion with the Leadership Team. He stated that the idea of drawing from various funds is of interest to him. Roberts remarked that he was willing to have a Leadership Team meeting on this subject, but expressed concern that this approach implies that the only problem is a public relations problem. He stressed that people generally do not want to pay any more money for government. Roberts emphasized that statistically valid polls are more important than surveys. He observed the need to get in touch with people's real concerns. Frazier thanked Rust for bringing this item forward and noted the need to inform people on what county government does. She indicated her support of public/private partnerships such as those highlighted in the agenda attachment. MOTION: Accept the report and refer this item to the Leadership Team for discussion/action. Frazier MOVED, Cornacchia SECONDED. VOTE: 4-0. Van Vactor stated that he would schedule this item for a Leadership Team meeting in mid-July, in coordination with presentation of the Diversity Report item.
