3.    With regard to a Courthouse tour held this morning, Bill Van Vactor, County Administrator, asked for direction from the Board regarding pending decisions to be made regarding potential HVAC-related improvements to the Courthouse. Van Vactor was directed to develop a list of prioritized needs for the Courthouse, the Sheriff and the District Attorney. Cornacchia observed that this may be an appropriate time to do basic work such as painting, etc.

Rust spoke about the issue of amending the Metro Plan, indicating that Springfield has proposed that there be two people from each jurisdiction, facilitated by one (or two) staff members. The Board concurred that Lane County's MPC appointees were probably the appropriate players, adding that Rust could be an alternate for Roberts and either Dumdi or Frazier could substitute for Cornacchia, if necessary.

There was concurrence that the next meeting with regard to the Diversity Task Force Report would be held in the morning on June 1, when all commissioners could be present.

Noting that the Eugene City Council had endorsed Lane County's transfer tax, Roberts stated that Mayor Bascom has asked that the Board endorse their tax measure. He indicated that he had told the Mayor that Rust and Roberts, Eugene residents, would make the endorsement. Roberts obtained permission to use Board stationery for the endorsement, making it clear in the body of the letter that it spoke only for Roberts and Rust.

Frazier observed that the annual Tree Planting Festival would be held in Oakridge this weekend.

There being no further business, this meeting adjourned at 2:05 p.m.


Sharon Giles, Recording Secretary
