meetings. A motion was made, seconded, and passed unanimously

Subject-Bank Deposits of City Funds: After considerable study
of the banking procedures, the Finance Committee recommends that
the General Fund and checking account remain at the Umpqua

recommend that we review the sitaition again in regards to deposits.
Unquote
Motion made, seconded, and passed unamimously to accpet recommen
dation of the Finance Committee.
WATER COMMITTEE REPORT-Chairman Gordon Murphey-No complaints.
SEWER COMMITTEE REPORT-Chairman Grover Woods-Problems at Juniper
Pump Station. They pumped it out and went down into it. Lee
Clements states it is too valuable an installation to just throw
it away as C, H2, and M recommend. Believes that the walls could
be repaired. It will be a link in the disposal system when it
is put into operation. We should have a cost figure soon.
Mr. Woods asked for a motion to send the pump motors in to be
cleaned right away, as they were in the warehouse and under water
during the flood. A motion to do so was made, seconded, and passed
unanimously.
Discussion of future planning and sewer user*s monthly charge
proposal.
The Sewer Committee recommends that a $2.00 sewer charge be
attached to the water bill. This money to be put in a special fund
for a treatment plant.
The Mayor beli.gves this should be done right away. This should i
raise approximately $25,000 a year.
A motion was, seconded, and passed unanimously to put a $2.00
sewer charge on a single residence with a sliding scale to be
worked out on other occupancies.
Comments were asked for from Taxpayers:
Dr. Courtney stated that all residences inside the City Limits
should be fiooked to city sewers, by ordinance if necessary, to
force users to hook onto city sewers. He stated it is a MUST
whether or not people approve.
Curt Baker asked if the charge would temporary or permanent?
Mr. Johnson stated that it is all according to what kind of plant
is put in.
Mr. Johnson will get copies of all charges and how they are set
up for other cities, from the Bureau of Municipal Research. The
sewer committee and Mr. Johnson are to work together on this, to
figure charges for other than the single residences.
Abill has been introduced into the Senate that after July, 1966
no raw sewage can be put into any river, lake, or stream without
being treated. If this passes, we should have started 10 years
ago.
BUILDING COMMITTEE REPORT-Chairman Raymond Holliday-Justice of
the Peace McCabe would like to use the office in the City Bldg.
he has just vacated, free of charge for his trials. This was
okayed unanimously by the council for use until rented.
Earl Plagmann's barber shop needs some repairs. Had a bid from
Purlott for $1|76.00. Mr. Johnson stated that it has not been the
policy of the city to remodel for their tenants. We have not
had the bank building long enough to set up a policy. They turned
this back to the committee to wait for th:ir recommendation.
POLICE COMMITTEE REPORT-Chairman Leon Paull-Upon recommendation of
the police committee, the burglar alarm for MCKay's Market will
be hooked back up. Mr. Paull wrote to different cities for their
opinions on this and they all felt it was well worth the few
false alarms they had, to maybe apprehend a thief in the act.
Recommendation approved unanimously.
Also recommended that the Chief of Police be allowed to spend up
to $50.00 without approval of the Council. It is already set up
by ordinance, so no further action was needed,
A police man bought a pair of waders during the flood for $16,90.
Mr. Johnson did not think the city should pay for these. They
are to be left at the police station so it was recommended this
bill be paid. Unanimously accepted recommendation,
A written request from Cliff Purlott to raise floor 6 inches when
he adds on to the fire hall on the Plat. This would add $500.00
to the bid already accepted. Motion passed unanimously to add
this to the original accepted bid.
There are no school signs posted on Longwood D^'ive, or on Prontage
Road. One is a County road, the other outside the City Limits.
Also reported congestion .at Rainbow Plaza and i^th by the Silver
Moon Tavern. Both parallel parking and vertical parking cause a
hazard. The committee and Chief of Police recommend that the
curb be painted yellow and no parking signs be posted at Rainbow
Plaza for the length of 2 cars. Acepted the committee*s recom
mendation unanimously.

This private property and the alley has been vacated,
FIRE DEPARTMENT COMMITTEE REPORT-Chairman James Thornton-Discussion
of the Mutual Aid Agreement for Pire Protection was held and upon
recommendation of the committee, agreed unanimously to sign an
agreement for Mutual Aid. Mayor, Councilmen, and Firemen all
agree they should go back into this agreement, Mr, Thornton to
get the agreements and mail to different cities.
Through the Fire Department, building inspections firewise has
been done for several years. The committee believes that their
inspector should be recognized by the city, brought up to date
on the building codes, and also be sppointed the city building
inspector. Upon recommendation of the committee, George Grassl
was appointed City Building Inspector, to receive $2.00 an hour
same as with his volunteer inspection on the Pire Department.
Unanimous.
The West Apartments and a house at 83I Laurel, have been inspected
and committee recommends that immediate action be taken by the
City to condemn these two places. Unanimously agreed for the
attorney to take the necessary steps for this, and report at the
109
next council meeting,
PLANNING COMMISSION-No meeting-no report.
CIVIL DEFENSE DIRECTOR-Curt Baker. There should be an overall
command post in time of emergency, preferrable above flood level.
Believes there should be direct communication with the Douglas
County Sheriff's office. Would recommend that a letter be written
directly to the county court and commissioners requesting their
consideration in this matter. Motion, made, seconded, and passed
to writer letter toward this aim.
The Mayor stated that this could not all be accomplished overnight
but when his plans are complete, turn a copy into him and he will
see that the councilmen all get copies.
Report from Recorder-The city received a letter from the students
of the North Bend High School just after the cleanup weekend
offering their aid and assistance in any way possibel. The Em
ployment office also called offering workers, and the Mayor
reported that the BLM offered help.
A letter from the State asking for application for street aid
was referred to the street committee. These applications have been
turned in every year, and it has been about nine years since Reedsport
has received any funds from this source.
Mr. Johnson asked for permission to call for bids on a new pickup
for the water department. Also permission to purchase a light
generator for use this summer in putting pipe in the tunnel.
This would be between $275 and $300. Permission to call for these
bids was given unanimously.
Under New Business, the Mayor again explained that it is necessary,
for any business to Tbe taken up at the regular council meetings,
should be turned iniat least 10 days before the meeting so it
can be turned over to the proper committees for their action.
LeRoy Chenoweth, Fire Chief, asked if an ordinance could be put
in effect so that during a hazard apartments, and second stories
of buildings could be vacated and power shut off for 'fire pro
tection. The City Attorney is to check into this.
There is an ordinance now in effect that all lots within the city
limits be hooked on to the sewer, Sewqr Committee to make a report
at next regular meeting or at special meeting, whichever comes
first,
Dr. Mackenzie was wondering if a storm sewer could not be put in
on Winchester to handle the excess water from Crestview Hill. A
letter has already been written requesting an engineer to stop
here as soon as possible to look the situation over and decide
the best solution to our problem,
Wallace Sabin suggested the city present a plaque to the Fire
Department and Police Department for work above and beyond the

program for another low cost housing area in the City.
Mr. Dondero of the Douglas County Housing Authority introduced Mr.
Pedersen, with the Bureau of Municipal Research, who is to make the
survey, if an agreement is entered into with the City.
He explained the requirements for a workable program:
1. Codes & Ordinance^
2. Comprehensive Community Plan
116
3. Neighborhood Analysis
I4. Administrative Organization
5. Financing
6. Housing for Displaced Families
7. Citizen Participation.
Potential cost of City for this workable plan would be less
than $500.00.
Mr. Dondero explained that the Housing Authority pays for the
property, buildings, and does not envolve local funds.
This would be for the elderly, and the survey would determine
the number of units needed.
The number of active applications (eligible) for a 90 day period
is:
12-1 bedroom for the elderly
6 -2 bedrooms for families
6 -3 bedrooms for families
At this time there are 70 applications from around Reedsport,
but all are not eligible.
The Douglas County Housing Authority is self-sustaining, and this
is the first year they are going to get government aid for housing
the elderly.
At this time they own 10| acres between Highway 101 and 3^> hut
would have to be filled before it could be used. They would explore
other locations before using that site.
Recommend that the Mayor appoint a cross-section of people on the
Citizen's Committee so that the City would be well represented.
The Mayor referred this to the Planning Commission for their
reoommendation to the Council, There will be a Planning

of the theatre. City Building, Vacation of alley, leasing or purchase
of parking lot. Will be approximately $100,000 investment. Pur
chaser's name to be withheld until time of purchase.

to move, and to build a new police station,
Mr. Serfling stated that before a lease with option can be signed,
they have to linow the price, and that they can have the property.
Asked that if it were put up for bids, could a small amount of cash

Mr, Hurlocker said that we are the only city in Oregon without a G^^y
Hall, and that we would be relinquishing property we may need in the
near future, if we lease or sell this area wanted for the parking lot,
Mr. Johnson stated that the alley could not be vacated. Sewer line is
in the center.
Mayor asked the City Attorney if it is possible to negotiate without
advertising for bids?
Mr. Jayne says that the City is allowed by State Statute to sell without
advertising, but the City has always asked for bids before, and he be
lieves that it would be setting a precedent. Also believes it could
be advertised for bids, with the right to accept the bid with the
best plans to improve the city,
Mr. Murphey believes that we should do all we can to help, Mr,
Thornton thinks we should take a long look at the parking area. Mr,
Woods stated that we cannot lose this parking area, may need it to
build on.
When asked by A1 Herra if this would be private parking, Mr, Serfling
said yes, and Mr. Herra stated that this would not be helping the
other merchants,
Mr. Jayne mentioned that a trade for other property might be possible.
Mr. Murphey moved that we negotiate with this Downtown Improvement
Group exclusively in place of putting property up for bid, Second-
^oods.
Mr, Thornton asked if the motion passed, would the council as a whole
act on the negotiations? Mayor Vaughn stated that he had planned to
appoint a Negotiating Committee, but if the Council felt it should be
done as a whole, so be it.
Hr. Holliday suggested an appraisor to determine how much the City
Building and property is worth,
Mr, Borrevik, one of the Improvement Committee, said that they had
presented their proposal, and believed that the city should be able
to negotiate,
Mr, Johnson mentioned the fact that at first the City Building was
all they wanted to purchase, but now it includes the parking lot.
Roy Henderson said that for years, the City has reserved this half
block for City Buildings, and he does not believe that we should
relinquish all the property.
The mayor asked for a vote on the motion. Unanimous to negotiate.

Mayor Vaughn stated for the benefit of those that didn't know, negotiations
for the sale of the City Building were terminated after 2 hoursi' when it
was decided that no terms could be reached.
Gaylord Vaughn, L. E. Paull, Dawn Peseau, Paul Hurlocker, Ray Holliday, and
Bill Burdick went to Crescent City to observe Urban Renewal in action.
As each pointed out the parts that impressed them, a feeling that this might
be the answer for Reedsport was prevalent.
The Mayor stated that it shows what determination can do. All groups were
unanimous in wanting the disaster area rebuilt. Also that if Reedsport
shows that it is in favor of Urban Renewal, It will be pursued.
Tom Payne has requested a hearing before the council on the rezoning of the
old Hospital property. He quoted the Lane-use Plan book compiled by the
Bureau of Municipal Research in 1961. Suggested that enforcement of a
zoning plan be set in motion.-
Laia^-use book stated that 1^0% of people that work in Reedsport, live outside
city limits. No organized planning in City even though there is an ordi
nance, but is not enforced. Also that trailer courts, apartment houses,
should be next to Commercial zones. At time of survey, houses in Reedsport,
were sub-standard.
First proposal-consider changing that parcel to Zone 1-Residential.
Second proposal-review zoning laws and bring them up to current specifi
cations. Especially as owners in this area, would like to see no
trailer courts allowed in Zone #2-Residential.
Plans are already in the process of having all our ordinances reveiwed
and Mr. Jayne is getting an estimate for this. Mayor referred to the
Planning Commission for their action whether or not Trailer courts
should be restricted from Zone-2 Residential.
No action taken on the changing of the zone from Zone 2-Residential to
Zone 1-Residential on the Hospital property.
A letter was ready by the Mayor from W. A. burdick, resigning ^rom the
library board. The council thanked him for his service these many years.

to meet city specifications.
Talked to Mr. Duncan about the reservation of the airport property, but
he felt no action need be taken.
The hearing on the Hubbard property in the Forest Hills area cannot be
called without a meets and bounds description in the advertising, and is
waiting for this from the engineers.
Progress on condemnations reported.
CITY RECORDER'S REPORT
New fuel oil bids should be called for. Other contracts expired December
I96I4.
It was discussed pro and con as to whether any of the council members can
legally do business with the City. The City attorney is to look into this
and send a letter out to the councilmen. Some instances of this being done
in other cities was told. The councilmen do not feel that they should be
penalized for being a councilmen.
Mr. Thornton brought up the setting of the power pole on the hill for
the radio costing Grover Woods $500.00, This, Mr. Johnson, said is a
long story. Mayor Vaughn believed.that this had all been taken care
of as he and Mr. Johnson had discussed this with Mr. Woods for about
an hour. No action was taken.
A letter from the City of Kodiak, Alaska, was read by Mr. Johnson.
A check for $2807.2? was enclosed as their contribution to assist us
from out disaster as they were aided by Oregon after theirs. Reedsport
was chosen as the city in Oregon to receive these funds.
The Mayor has asked Governor Hatfield to write.ithanking them for their
donation.
A letter from the State Highway Department to CMef Hass was read. This
was in answer to a letter written by Hass requesting that the existing
flashers for school crossing at 21st and Winchester be moved to the
Pioneer School on the Highway 101 and Umpqua Bowling Lanes.
They stated that it would be undesirable due to a mid-block location.
VlO/65, page's
127
Mr. Johnson believes that if 13th,is brought up to specifications
from Hawthorne to the Highway, it will no longer be a mid-block
situation and the State will approve the location. States that a
manhole will have to be raised and some fill put in. Council
okayed immediate action for this fill.
As to the traffic signals at 22nd and Winchester; they are not what
they should be. So until the State decides what to do to correct
the situation, will keep the one covered, so as not to have too
much confusion. The highway is not standard width seems to be the
problem.
Mr. Holliday believes that the backstops on the parks should be
fixed so that they will be a permanent installation. After discussion,
Holliday moved that the City take on the backstop repairs for $1000.00
to $1100.00. Seconded. This money would have to be budgeted for
*65-f66. The amount set aside for the Recreation Budget Is $3000.00,
with $1100.00 of this to go toward the summer recreation program.
Mr. Plagmann turned over the recreation committees' books and there is
$200 balance.
Vote on motion-unanimous.
Mr. Thornton reported on the Recreation Committee meeting-There has
been quite an increase in the activities of this group. Reedsport
Union High School, Pioneer School, and the City have been denat.ing
$1100.00 toward this, and Gardiner. School, $1000.00 They would like
to see this raised to $1^00.00 each or $1^.00.00 rriore apiece. The
school cannot raise theirs until next year, but Mr. Thornton would
like to see the bity budget the full $1^00.00 for this summer. Decided
to table this until the budget meeting next Monday night. Budget
Committee might have suggestions.
Ben Gawley approached the council for approval to curb Crestview Drive
by his property on Crestview Hill. He would add 6 feet of blacktop,
curb, and would like permission to build a retaining wall next to the
curb where the sidewalk usually goes. Would put sidewalk on top of
retaining wall.
Mayor referred this to street committee for their recommendation.
Bill Burdick asked for the City's help to get the undercrossing by
Forest Hills and the Highland School back on the Legislative agenda.
The council so moved.
Mr. Hurlocker reported it wouldn't be wise to try and land at the air
port until '68.
The Shanelec's of the Riverview Hotel were here asking for a change in
the rate (water, sewer) for the hotel. Believe it is too Kgh since the
sewer charge has been added. Referred to proper committee.
Mr. Paull feels the City has an unjust policy and should be looked into
where a man who hool s up to the sewer has to pay to run. the line, maybe
a block or half block, then when the people in-between hook on they
don't pay any of the cost of the initial installation. Should be some
way of putting a lien against the property to take care of this. Re
ferred to sewer committee.
Bills approved for payment are as follows:

SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING
jmm'9, 1965, 8p,m.
Mayor called meeting to order with councilmen Murphey, Paull, Woods,
Thornton, and Holliday present. Hurlocker absent.
Before getting started on the meeting, the Mayor mentioned that there
had been some criticism of the City for not getting the Community
Bldg. ready for use since the flood. The reason for this is a very
good one. The City has applied for a disaster loan to repaid the
building. They have also requested an advance for this and as soon
as it is forth-coming, work will be started on its repairs.
Also, Mr. McKay and 2 Urban renewal representatives will be here some
time this month to start the survey that the City has requested.
Mayor introduced H. E, Nickels, chairman of the negotiating committee
of the Downtown Improvement Group. He introduced the members of his
committee, Lloyd Richardson, Bill Burdick, George Melville, and
Tom Lillebo, absent.
6/9/65
133
Mr. Nickels presented plans that had been drawn to show what is necessary
in a market such as is proposed. Tentatively, the building will be^
9000 square feet. They required 3 to 1 parking, but this is only 2^ to 1.
Want 2-way driveway between jail and market. There will be parking also
in front of building-where present City bldg, is. Market will be on
Theatre property facing I^th St.
Proposal-pay City $12,000 for the City Building.
pay Baltazar $8000 for old theatre
Parking area-lease, or outright purchase-$l|0,00 per month
15 year with option to renew for 5 y^srs. To purchase, same
price as lease.
This plan is basically the same as proposed at" the first negotiating
meeting, other than a price has been set.
Mr. Nickels stated that they still have Mr. Baltazar's committment for
the theatre. Mentioned a figure of $i|3,300 that would be spent before
the mart.et building is even started. This figure includes cost of
City building, theatre, filling and blacktopping. Also the tearing
down of the two buildings.
New building will cost approximately $7.00 per square foot. Maximum
rent for a building that size is $1000,00 a month at the most.
When asked how all this was going to be accomplished, Mr. Nickels
said that several people propose to form a corporation, and they are
asking for an option on City Building and parking area.
Also that they had not discussed the amount they would be prepared to
pay. Said that he felt no large amount of money should be involved.
Have operated on faith with Mr, Baltazar so far, would think they
could with the City,

this agreement, since they have already taken $250.00 from IP.

Gardiner will lose l/2 the money now paid them by IP. Under Mutual
Aid, other trucks move in to protect Reedsport, but if they are under
contract to IP and they have a big fire. Mutual Aid will not respond.
t
I I Attorney Jayne feels that the whole thing should be re-negotiated.
I That Gardiner, IP, City representatives, and all concerned should get

DOGS-International Paper has consented to let the City use the property
where the old City Dump used to be, to build the dog pound-year to year

basis of $300.00 per month, and he would work the parks along with
•being the dogcatcher. This amount would be Plus Mileage.

hired tb begin work August 1st. (The pound to be built on IP property).
FIRE COMMITTEE-James Thornton, chairman:
Had not had time to discuss with the Fire Department, a paid Fire
Chief.
Releases for burning buildings for other people should be checked,
to be sure it relieves the City and Fire Department of any responsibil

Mr, Woods brought up a letter that had been received from the County
Sanitarian, asking that the City consider letting the Sewage Disposal
trucks dump the sludge from septic tanks into one of the manholes to
the City sewer. A charge is usually made, .and at this time, they are
dumping at the dump x^hich makes it very unsanitary and conducive to
•germs and bacteria and becomes a health hazard.
City Attorney is opposed to this now, but a letter is to be written
to the County Sanitarian stating that the City will consider this
if it is feasible when they put in their disposal plant."

THE council op THK CITY OP REEDSPORT
DECEMBER 1965
a:OOP.M.
Meeting was called to order by Mayor Vaughn with Councilmen Paull,
Thornton, Woods, present,. Murphey, Holliday, and Lewis absent.
Mayor announced that a Special Council Meeting would be held
next Wednesday, December 22, 1965* at 7^30 P.M. to meet with C,
H2, & M on the Sewage Disposal Plant. Will be a public meeting.
Mentioned trip to Prisco on Urban Renewal Survey, ^75,000 for
b block area. Workable program presented also. Short but interesting ^
trip.
At January meeting. If all is in ijeadineaa, will pass resolution I
for Low-Cost Housing,
Mayor introduced Joe Heidel and Ray Jarin of the Corps of Engineers
to discuss improvements on present levy system,
Mr. Heidel explained that the studies they have been doing, were
initiated by the City-have chosen method which will be the fastest,
but still certain procedures must be followed. This will not
have to go to Congress for authorization.
Corps of Engineers have fir^ahed survey and are ready to submit their
finds to Washington to high/authorities. Need signature of City
saying that they will cooperate and hold up their endj ig not contract.
Prom an aerial photo, Mr. Heidel described and showed haw the dike
would be raised, in detail.
The width of the dike will be 12 feet. I f it is a street and needs
to be wider, this will have to be paid for by the City. Moving of
utility poles, right-of-ways, will be up to the City.
An estimated amount of f5ii.,000 was mention/for Winchester Ave.
and 2nd Street. This included the ramps that would be built for
the streets coming into 2nd St. Also the raising and blacktopplng
of Winchester over the 12 foot width^ and ramps.
The Corp does not like to estimate the cost of these items, because
it is the City's place to have them taken care of. The widening
of the streets can be done by the government contractor, or the
city can let it to Withers. Government must be paid in full before
contract is let, if they are to do the work.
After much discussion on whether or not to sign agreement immediately
or wait, a motion was made to sign agreement saying the city wouldcooperate
with the Corp. The Mayor declared himself a councilman,
there was a second, and the motion was passed unanimously.
Meeting adjourned.

MINUTES OP THE SPECIAL MEETING OP
THE COUNCIL OP THE CITY OP REEDSPORT,
DECEMBER 22, 1965, 7:30P.M.
Meeting was called to order with Councilmen Paull, Lewis, and
Holliday present.
Mayor introduced Mr. Sid Laswell, with Cornell, Rowland, Hayes,
and Merryfield, who was present to discuss the grant (federal)
for the sewage disposal plant and discuss the different and
best methods for Reedsport*s use.
Mr. Laswell explained that there were ij. different Pederal Grants
^ that could be applied for.
Under Public Law 660-30% grant-Sewage treatment,only draw-back
is funds are limited to the State and there are more applications
than money.
Other three are-Housing & Urban Development-$0% grant-water and
sewer-This program has not been formally set-up, no applications
or procedure arranged as yet. Expected in about a month.
Mr. Laswell stated that this plan may be, but does not believe it
is for the City.
Farmer's Home Administration-50% grant for $^00 or less population.
Not developed yet, basically for city's preceding on master plan.
Community must show it cannot finance any other way.
Economic Development Act.-$0% grant-hazy and vague criteria. This
is set up in high unemployment areas.
My suggestion is if you have decided to go ahead is-Take all steps
to make yourself best eligible.
Can get everything done without any funds (planning study loans),
final designs, everything but the building itself. Are not committed
to repay fund unless contracts are let.
Construction could not start before July *66, when funds will be
available, and with proper applications, am almost sure in *66
or next will be eligible for 30% grant. Have 3 or ii- months to get
final planning loan and get set up. Only thing for this loan,
you must show in the application that you either own or have an
option on the property or site.
Discussed the types of sewage plants and ponds. Stated that the
availability of land in this areas for a pond system is liot good.
157
Proposes before any final design is picked, more study be made on
type to be used.
Mr. Laswell was informed that Urban Renewal requires that city have
separate storm sewers.
Mr. Laswell was asked for a rough outline on New State Law on Pollution,
l^e stated that they are really no different, and to his knowledge
does not believe th^ are after the City. Believes it is only a
matter of time, and is good that we are going ahead on our own to
get set up for facilities. Believes the State would look on what
we have done with favor.
Bids for th^se facilities are above the 6% limitations.
All according to availability of funds, how soon might it be done,
was asked?
We should schedule this project so that it will fit into what the
City already has going, since we are not on crash program.
Could not justify a pond system from information at hand when
study was made. New aeration system should be looked at. It would
take same area as for Plan A, approximately 6 acres. System must
be chosen before you get into final design.
12/22/65
Was decided that Mr. Laswell is to take 2 weeks to look at New Aeration
plan dnd compare with other ajstema, then come back and let us know
which is beat. In the meantime, talk to the Port Commission about
property..

the tax-base.

by the Mayor to show need for tax-base increase. Turned it over to

City our size nicely in 1936. Believe now is the time if we are going
to go for a raise. Recommend a base of $1^0,000.

COMMITTEE REPORTS
FINANCE-Grover Woods, chairman-Has been studying pump deal-basin
and pump, believes its going to get out of hand, finance-wise, before
its finished.
Dr. Lewis believes we should get plans drawn and get a bid. Since
it has gone sky-high, do not believe go wild about the time.
Mr. Johnson stated that the Council had okayed the revised plans
and Lillebo has orderalthe piling. Have gone ahead as per council
action. f
Mayor stated City still obligated and in an emergency, you do the *
best you can.
Dr. Lewis suggests that we retain professional help, not primarily

Understood whole cost to be $5500; now it is $8506, and a figure
of four or five thousand dollars mentioned for the dredging. Where
will it end?

engineer to draw specs for bids on dredging? Suggest we turn it over
to the Sewer Committee for their recommandation.
Mayor stated that we ratify whats been done, and sewer committee to
recommend next step.
WATER COMMITTEE-Gordon Murphey, chairman: None
PARKS, PLAYGROUNDS, AND BUILDING-L. E. Paull, chairman-nothing new.
Have had complaints about lack of lighting on Frontage Road. Dr. Lewis
n
171
3/7/66
called PUD and talked to Mr. Nunnally, and he said he would take
care of it. Ambulance has had near misses in this area. Mayor
and Dr. Lewis to see PUD-Tuesday.
Mr. Paull announced that the floor would be poured tomorrow on the
Police Annex and still feel we did the right thing, even though there
has been a lot of criticism.
Asked if money was budgeted to put sidewalk around the downtown park?
Mr. Johnson stated "no".
After some discussion, was moved that bids be let for sidewalks (West
Railroad & Fir), two sides of park. Seconded and passed unanimously.
Mr. Kent felt that sidewalks should be considered between the grade
school and Thompson Ford Sales on Winchester Avenue.
Report on the East Railroad paving, Mr. Johnson said that the Staters
estimate is less than $20,000; but it will be all according to the
bids.
SEWER COMMITTEE-Grover Woods, chairman-Dr. Lewis asked that now it was
almost Tourist time, if the/junk yard by the railroad tracks (Grover
Wood's) couldn't be cleaned up, or at least stuff put inside? Very
little discussion before subject was changed.
Mrs. Walter Keating and Ivan Allen were present to put their sewer
problem before the council to see if they couldn't help solve it?
They live in the area in the 200 block on Winchester Ave., where the
property owner has always been responsible for his sewer hookup
clear to the main which runs down the street. Since Winchester Ave,
is used by logging trucks, the heavy traffic has caused their lines
to break just before they go into the main line. This is the second
time, Keating's and Allen's stood the full expense the first time.
Feel that since the rest (Flat) are only responsible from their
property line, maybe the City could help fix theirs?
After much discussion pro and con, a motion that the City take on
the responsibility of existing problem and fix (Allen, Keating,
Bloomquist). Seconded and passed unanimously.
Holes in the blacktop near Highland Market were discussed. Mr.
Johnson reported that the last blacktop they had gotten, had been
frozen and wouldn't hold.
Mr. Woods asked how the water and sewer charges were set up on an
apartment and groucery store. Mr. Johnson informed him that
they are set up by ordinance.
Mr. Murphey asked about writing a letter to see if where the West
Apartments were burned couldn't be cleaned up? Mayor believes he
may have committed the City to clean it up.
Discussion of a clean-up week-end followed. Mayor appointed Dr.
Courtney, a committee of one, to work on this. Dr. Courtney thought
about the First of May would be a good time. The help of all the
service clubs, fire department, and city crev: will be needed.
POLICE COMMITTEE-Dr. Lewis, chairman-nothing.
FIRE COMMITTEE-James Thornton, chairman-absent: Chief Chenoweth
announced that when the department agreed to burn the City Building,
they understood it was going to be standing; now that it is going
to be knocked down, will take longer, want a straight $2.00 an hour
per fireman.
No action taken as committee chairman not here.

MINUTES OP THE REGULAR COUNCIL MEETING
OP THE CITY OP REEDSPORT, AUGUST 12, 1966
8:00P.M.
The meeting was called to order by the Mayor with the following
councilmen present: James Thornton, Gordon Murphey, L. E. Paull,
Grover Woods, Raymond Holliday, with Dr. Lewis out of town.
Before getting into the agenda, there is a routine request from
Western Douglas Republican Women to hang a banner across Pir Ave.
Mr. Johnson is to notify them that as far as the City is concerned,
it is okay, but they should contact the State Highway Dept. also
for permission.
Also have a request from the Onstage Dance Studio in Coos Bay. Wish
to use the Community Bldg. (gym) every Priday night from 7p.m.-9p.m.
for $5-00 to give dancing lessons.
After stating that $5-00 would not take care of the heat, lights,
and cleaning, with Priday a bad night to tie up the building, was
moved, seconded, and passed to reject the Dance Studio's offer.
MAPLE DRIVE SEWER AND PAVING: Letter from the City Attorney was read
by the Mayor, stating that even though City Recorder Johnson informed
the council that this sewer did not meet City or State requirement,
the council did nothing to make Mr. Bernhardt bring this up to meet
specifications.
In Mr. Jayne's research he finds that private sewers and drains can
become the property of a City by purchase, dedication accepted by
municipal authority, and in some cases, private sewer lines are
regarded as becoming municipal lines merely through connection and
integration with the city sewer.
He states, quote, "Since the City Council and Planning Commission were
put on notice of the condition of this line and failed to take any
action and subsequently charged connection fees and service charges,
I feel that the Court could reasonably hold that the sewer line in
question is a part of the City sewer and a City responsibility.
To avoid costly litigation and as a way of compromise, I would suggest
the City install several man holes in locations selected by the City
Recorder at City expense and put in lamp holes as provided for in the
lines, and allow the property owners to pave the street. Unquote.
Mr. Johnson stated that he did not feel qualified to tell them where to
put the manholes. Part lies on privatB property and does not know
our responsibility.
Paull moved that people on Maple Drive be given okay to go ahead and
pave. Seconded.
Por a matter of record, the Mayor requested that the Council accept
the part of the sewer system that is in the street.
An easement through E. P. Stone's property will be needed. Main thing
is to let people know, that if the street is paved, it will have to be
torn up when manholes are installed.
Motion withdrawn.
Paull moved we accept sewer underneath City street (Maple Drive);
give permission to blacktop, but be sure they know it will have to
be torn up when manholes are put in (at City's expense)^
Seconded and passed unanimously.
PLANNING COMMISSION REPORT: Recommend that Scott petition for annexation
be accepted.
City Attorney to advertise with hearing called for next regular
council meeting October 10th.
9/12/66
Chairman E. C. Daily explained briefly the plans of setting up a group
to compile data to present to diversified industries to interest them
in our area.
Bill Jayne to go ahead and check on easement through Stone property.

MINtJTES OP THE CONTINUATION OF THE REGULAR

OP THE CITY OF REEBSPORT, JANUARY 22, 1968

Mayor reconvened the meeting of the council from the January 8th
recess with the following council members present: L. E. Paull,
Dr. Robert Lewis, Ronald 0. Hanson, James Thornton, C. D. Purlott,
with Ray Holliday absent.
Mayor had letter from the State Tax Commission notifying the City
that there would be no representatives from their office here to
help with the filing of State Tax Returns this year, due to a cut
in traveling expenses. Sent list to post of where they will be.
As yet, there is no answer from the Southern Pacific Co. setting up
a meeting to discuss dike easements. No other easements have been
signed.
Nothing yet from the Corps of Engineers on the acceptance of the
Platiron in the dike project.
Mr. Johnson and William Jayne met with Lillebo to discuss easement
on Platiron. Until project has been approved, do not expect easement
to be signed.
Mayor announced that he was not going to make his appointments until
the Pebruary meeting; had been unable to contact all his committees.
Did open nominations for President of the Council. L. E. Paull reelected
by acclamation.
Purther appointments were made:
City Recorder-I. G. Johnson; Water Commissioner, Arthur L. Tollefson;

Planners on Urban Renewal to be here Pebruary 5th. Mayor feels
Council, Planning Commission, Pire Chief, Police Chief, and Citizens'

Gerald Chirrick, new policeman, introduced to the Council by Chief Hass.
Dr. Lewis, Ronald 0. Hanson, and L. E. Paull made a report on the
feasibility of City-Mgr. type government for Reedsport.
^ Letter was read by Dr. Lewis stating reasons for the recommendation that
a new charter be submitted to a vote of the people in the general election
to change our city government to a Council-Manager or City Manager form
of government.
Also stated in the letter was the fact that adopting this form of
government has been under discussion among the council members for over
a year and we have all been in favor of a change.
When questioned by Dawn Peseau, The World correspondent, as to where
this has been under discussion, was told that it had not been discussed
in public until last council meeting when committee was appointed; had
been discussed at coffee breaks.
Also informed that charter must be changed, still in planning stage;
funds must be available, then advertise for man. No one man in mind,
should be a well-trained individual.
Peseau then questioned whether or not effective action can be taken until
charter has been changed?
Was informed that Council could hire a City Manager at this time, but
the way the charter reads, could not be given the responaibilities that
page
1/22/68
a City Manager type government would require.
Mayor stated that at this time funds are aot available for a City
Manager.
Mr. Johnson stated that if you*re going to go for a City Manager
type government, at least go for a tax base increase for money for
something for him to work with. Brought to the Council*s attention
the commitments the City already has for the next fiscal year,
amounting to over $16,000.
Mr. Paull would like to see the Council as a committee to act on ^
changing the charter.
Dr. Lewis felt a smaller committee would be easier to get together
but felt they should all set in if they want.
Mr. Johnson stated that the charter could be amended by a vote of the
people, but to make a wt^ole new charter would take a lot of study.
After more discussion, Paull moved that a City Mgr. type charter be
submitted to the people at the May election. Seconded by Purlott,
and passed unanimously.
PETITION for zone change on the Old Arthur Wrecking Yard from
Residential #1 to Zone 3, Business has been okayed by the Planning
Commission.
Is now a non-conforming use, Mr. Johnson recommends that if zone is
changed, should be whole block, not just 2 lots as petition requests.
After discussion, Thornton moved this be tabled until February meeting.
Died for lack of motion, but Mayor tabled it until next meeting.
Mr. Johnson and Mr. Paull attended a meeting in Roseburg to discuss
possibility of a dock on the waterfront for the boats to use; at
present all is private property.
A letter thanking Mr. Johnson for attending the meeting and his interest
in community development was received from Tom Keel, Douglas County
Liason Officer between the County and State for recreational funds.
At present there is $19,000 available. Last year the amount of $1$,000
went entirely to the City of Roseburg, for installation of a sprinkling
system in the park. This is only half finished; word has been received
that their project is approved, so the $19,000 will be used to finish
this project. They expect to receive approximately $21,000 next jear.
Applications should be sent as soon as possible, as deadline is 3/15/68.
Suggested that we put in for the 69-70 budget; have to be able ^
to match funds; might be a good way to get our park. j
Was mentioned that Steve Laam wanted a riding mower.
Announced that a representative from Small Business Administration
will be here to meet with the business people to be affected by
Urban Renewal.
Zack Turner asked if the Building Inspector could make fire inspections.

believes Fire Chief and Assistant Chief should be paid according to
wages paid in other Cities, if going to meet competitive wages in
other departments.

that of the budget committee. They are there to check and approve
or disapprove the budget presented to them by the City, not the firing

BUDGET MEETING called to order by Roy Henderson, Chairman, stating
that the voters didn*t seem to be too happy with the budget.
Committee here to help decide what should be done.
Hutter stated he had talked with some that were against the City
Manager.
Dunn said the people didn't feel like they should be faced with this
extra tax.
Mayor Hurlocker requested that they think of a Serial Levy for
the purchase of equipment. These usually run for a period of five
years. That way, purchase of equipment would not come out of
operating funds. r
Henderson felt that they should try and reduce the budget of the
levy.
Dunn felt it was voted down very soundly. What we are faced with is
to cut to what we think will pass.
Mr. Johnson stated that he could cut the budget down, but they
wouldn't like.it. Listed different items amounting to $I|1,000
that would put us right where we have been for years.
After much discussion. Budget Committee was against these cuts.
City has been falling behind the last few years, will just be that
much harder next year if Budget is cut to the bone.
Mr. Johnson also felt Water Rates should be increased, but Budget
Committee did not feel that this was in their category.
When asked for suggestion from tax payers, Zack Turner, Fire Chief, .
felt that the council should go and explain the budget to civic
groups; to try and sell it.
275
6/2U/68
Lee Clementa felt that the City Manager was one of the items causing
the "budget not to pass.
Chairman Henderson suggested that they cut out the $6,000 for the
City Manager; $10,000 equipment purchase; •. and $3,000 for parks.
Then in November have on ballot Serial Levy for Equipment Purchase.
Paull thinks the Council has 2 votes to weigh. Charter Change for
City Manager, and the Budget Vote. Wants to go on record, that even
if the $6,000 for City Manager is taken off, as of the first of the
year, can still hire one.
O Mr. Johnson informed the Council that this might be questionable,
according to the interpretation of the Budget Lavjs.
Mr, Johnson asked the council if they knew the toal amount of mills
the tax would be x\'ith everything totaled. It x^jould be about 10[|.
mills, quite high.
Will be ten days after publication before budget can be voted on
again, 8th of July.
Recommends thSt a Serial Levy or Tax Base be on the November ballot.
Swain moved that they remove from the budget the following items
and present to the people for their approval; $I}.,000 off Recreation;
$6,000 off City Manager; $10,000 Off Equipment Purchase; $2,000
off Dike Maintenance; and $2$00 off Building Construction; making
a total of $214.,500.
Seconded by Dunn.
After Mr. Johnson explained the legal procedure, that the Budget
Committee is here as Advisory Board to the Council, Mr. Swain
resubmitted his motion to the council that they recommend the
above procedure to the council. Seconded by Dunn and passed
unanimously by the Budget Committee.
Budget Committee meeting adjourned.
Mayor Hurlocker reconvened the Council mssti^^g* Stated that Council
has responsibilities and they are hampered by lack of funds.
All councilmen received letter from City Attorney putting the
responsibility of selling the budget up to the councilmen.
Ten minute recess requested.
n
Council has heard Budget Committee's recommendation; what is your
pleasure?
Thornton-believes it should be put to the people like it was; if it
doesnVt' pass, cut and stay within limitation.
Lee Clement's personal opinion-not in favor of City Manager and believes
generally that the people wanted something cut out of the budget.
Would like question answered by council. Was stated that if the City
Manager was not funded for in the budget, they could hire him anyway.
Was told that this is not true.
As a word of constructive criticizm, Mr. Clements stated that the
Council should listen close to the people when they tell them
something.
Hanson-still have to weigh 2 votes, charter change and budget.
Mr. Clements added that he did not believe the ballot on the
charter was worded to mean a City Manager would be hired.
Mrs. Peseau stated that she thought the charter change authorized
6/2l|/68
the hiring of a City Manager but did not make it mandatory.
Mayor Hurlocker stated that it was the desire of the council to hire a
City Manager if possible.
In the opinion of the Mayor that they are desirous of hiring a City
Manager but cannot afford to at this time.
Paull moved that they accept the Budget Committee*s recommendation.

¥ATER - none
BUILDING, PLAYGROUND, & LIGHTS - Paull reported that both Cliff
Purlott and A1 Herra had inquired concerning purchasing the strip

fire trucks etc.

Fir Avenue at Sixth. Motion made by Hanson, seconded by Paull
that this Stop sign be installed. Motion carried.

been able to figure that it would take was $36,000. Ron Hanson
stated that he felt more time should be taken to explain to the
people the need for equipment and then re-submit the entire levy
to the vote of the people since all the items listed are necessary.
Discussion followed favoring re-submitting the serial levy.
Motion was made by Thornton, seconded by Cantrell, that the City
hold a serial levy election on March 1^, 1969 to purchase equipment
for an amount to be determined at the next council meeting.

Lumber Company requesting fire protection for the mill on Bolon
Island and also for the Wooley home on Dean's Creek. This would
be provided on two separate contracts requiring an initial payment
of $100 and an hourly rate based upon the type of equipment and

Federal Government and that the City is obligated to present the
matter to the people for approval or disapproval.

CONTINUATION OP REGULAR COUNCIL MEETING OP
CITY OP REEDSPORT, MONDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1968
8:00 P.M.
Mayor Hurlocker called the meeting to order with the following
councilmen present: L. E. Paull, James Thornton, Ronald 0. Hanson,
Ray Holliday, and Robert Cantrell. Rudy Ruppe absent.
Also present was Mrs. Carlene Maxwell, E. C. Daily, I. G. Johnson,
of the Urban Renewal Agency. Mayor-Elect Thomas Tymchuk and
Council-elect Clifford Plov, Oscar Anderson, Jr., and Ben Henderson
were present. Norvin Ashby of the Urban Renewal Office,
Meeting was continued from regular meeting so that Council could meet
with the Urban Renewal Agency to discuss changing from Urban Renewal
to Neighborhood Development Plan.
Mayor read the resignation of Lincoln Swain, arid appointed Sam Wigle
to take his place.
Mayor informed the Urban Renewal Agency that the Council had decided to
accept the agency's recommendation not to have election to bond for
$200,000 but since there was no representative from the Agency at the
12/16/66
Council meeting, did not decide about the Neighborhood Development
Plan.
Aahby informed the Council of the Douglas County Housing Authority
going ahead with their Turnkey project.
Also received a call from Hatfield»a office in Portland, telling of
the approval of Part 1 of the Urban Renewal Plan. Will only approve
the initial project, which is approximately $532,000.
Also telling us to go on NDP (year to year). Up to the City to
decide on improvements to be made.
In the discussion as to the people voting NDP or UR down, the Mayor
question Mr. Ashby as to whether or not it would be finished?
Mr. Ashby stated. In essence, yes. Only one can stop it is the
Council; only one can go ahead is the Council. But if voted down,
believe it would be a mandate to the council to turn it down.
Mayor stated that cuts have been made in the Douglas County Housing
Authority plans that will hot be to the City's best interests.
Thornton felt until they let us know what they are going to do or
what changes have been made, we must assume they will be going by
the original plans.
Mr. Johnson said that there was no indication on the original plans
of the Douglas County Housing to ever pave streets on the outside
of the project. No streets will be vacated until plans are presented.
Mayor decided maybe we should wait till we hear from Douglas County
Housing Authority.
Mr. Hanson asked that if an election is to be held in January, will some
kind of program be set up to educate the people, so they can cast an
intelligent ballot?
Urban Renewal Agency Board will decide what first year's project area
will be at next meeting.
Money cannot be used to build the sewage disposal plant.
Part 1 pertains to the original 8 block area.
Mr. Jayne was hsked how the ballot for the NDP would be worded?
Offhand he was not sure. Mr. Ashby stated that it should be on the
ballot that it could operate for 2 years without costi6g-thfe City
a cent.
Mr. Johnson informed Mr. Ashby that the City has nothing in writing
to this effect.
Mr. Thornton asked for the opinions of the incoming Councilmen
and Mayor to be.
Mr. Tymchuk spoke, not as the incoming Mayor, but as a prive
citizen. Several questions were put to Mr. Ashby such as whether
or not there is a deadline on credits we have for the project?
That is 3 years from date of start of the dike project.
Also that he read an article in the paper stating definitely that
the Douglas Housing Authority and Urba n Renewal are in no way
connected.
This was answered by Mr. Ashby stating that they are not connected but
try to help each other.
n
.n
12/16/68
295
Tymchuk stated that they have had a 2 year study at a cost of
$115»000 plus interest. Unflerstand thtit Reedsport is responsible for
I/I4 cost of project at any given time they enter into any one of several
different plans.
Survey is complete, has been turned down because of cost. Have
talked with many people in Reedsport. It is my feeling that if this
is voted on, it will be turned down. Personalities and emotions
are involved. Would suggest that no decision be made now and be
postponed for an indefinite time.
Propose board be retained and possibly extedned, and a long time
look taken.
Do believe NDP has merit but will not go now
present plan could be sold to the public.
Do not believe
Mayor Hurlocker is against waiting any long. Other areas are moving
and Reedsport is losing more and more business.
Ted Hansen believes something is going to have to be deicded. No
one is going to repair their buildings or anything else as long as
the project is hanging.
Government did not turn down whole project, allowed us
start with the first year, Mr. Ashby reminded. Vote does not have
to be in January, just so it is before March 6th.
L. E. Paull does not feel the council now in office should saddle
the new council with their decision, should wait and let them decide;
After all, it is just two weeks.
Mr. Cantrell believes shouls have a description of area to be the
project before it is voted on. By waiting until the next council
meeting, it will give the URA time for a meeting and they will have
come up with the project for the first year.
Peel that if there is a good project area, and there is time for edu
cating the people, has a good chance for the first year.
Next meeting is January 6th.
Building Inspector is to see Leroy Chenoweth about tearing down
his boat shed now that the boat is finished. Had several complaints
about it.

MINUTES OP PUBLIC HEARING ON URBAN RENEWAL
ESTABLISHING BLOCK 8l AS NDP PROJECT FOR
FIRST YEAR FOR CITY OF REEDSPORT HELD MONDAY
NIGHT, 8:00 P.M., AT CITY RECORDER»S OFFICE,
FEBRUARY 2k, 1969
Hearing was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk with following Councilmen
present: Ronald 0, Hanson, Clifford H, Plov, Oscar Anderson, Jr.,
Robert A. Cantrell, Rudy Ruppe, and Ben Henderson.
Purpose of meeting: Requested by Urban Renewal Agency to hold public
hearing on this date, changing NDP block number from 76 to 8l for
first year's project.
On February i|., had hearing on Block 76. Next day, received letter from
Agency requesting change in Block to 8l.
Wally Borrevik requested brief run down on block 8l before questions
start.
Mr. Ashby suggests Block 8l instead of 76 as there were too many
objections raised against Block 76 at hearing.
Fairway Garage is going to move. Could help them in relocating if
in area, would be eligible for SBA loan. Would be easier for them
to build if could get loan.
Ed Tillis asked Mr. Ashby as to what they invisioned going into Block 8l?
Mr. Ashby explained that present owners have first choice at property.
Has never been the intention of agency to have vacant land, taxwise.
If Fairway Garage goes back into that area, will want more property.
Wesley Hillier-have present owners presented willingness to sell to the
Agency?
Ashby-Not all of them. Only objection they have had is from owner of
vacant lots. Dr. Marvin Amick.
Mayor Tymchuk has received letter from Dr. Amick who owns this land.
Does not wish to sell, but if went to a vote of the people, woiild go
by decision of the voters, but would fight it otherwise.
Fields and Schneider other property involved in block.
Ashby stated that the liquor store and Sears Store were not included
in original plan.
Ashby was asked whether or not he had heard from the prime operator
who had said he would take Block 8l? Stated that he had not personally
heard from them. Fairway Motors only sure prospect, but other still
a possibility.
William Hardy questioned the reason for the change from Block 76 to 8l?
Ashby answered in this manner. To do Block 76, and do it adequately,
one of prime businesses in block was a department store. Got as far
as hearing and Mr. ^unn changed his mind about rebuilding. Only way
would be to change uses. In Block 8l, we are considering entire block.
Do not know ultimate use of whole block as yet.
Ashby explained that in the original plan, the City Hall was to be
in Block 8l. Is not as essential to-stick to plan in this block.
Duard Story asked for the Council's opinions.
Mr. Johnson explained that this was a hearing to get pros and cons
to help Council decide proper action to be taken and to get people's
feeling on this area.
When questioned as to what would go where Fairway Motors is now if they
moved across the street, Ashby stated that he did not know.
2/2U/69
Hearing
Fairway Motors has been offered the Hinsdale property across from the
Post Office. They (Fairway Motors) understood that a National Company
wanted the whole of Block 8l»
Walter Murphey expressed opinion that if Fairway Motors did buil4 and
use property that is now vacant would be an improvement.
Roy Henderson believes the credits from the dike should be used to
offset taxes. To have meeting Thursday to discuss new approach.
Should not make any decision until have considered storm sewers and
such. If credits go to small Urban Renewal area, only few will benefit.
Walter Murphey feels that any improvement on vacant property helps the
tax payers. ^
William Hardy asked if we have any insurance that anything will be
built on property that has been vacant for years?
' i
Denver Wear believes should use credit to separate storm sewer
from sewage disposal .
Ronald Hanson explained that this was just a hearing, that nothing
would be decided until Thursday night meeting.
Lester Thompson asked if there is some credit that could be used
toward storm sewer?
Once credits are spent, they are gone. If triangle is area used
for NDP, will have credit of $121^.,000. Govern4\ent will put up $3
for every dollar City will spend.
Hanson felt credits could be used for storm sewers first year, but
follow up second year with something above the ground.
AUHerra asked when Urban Renewal had been accepted?
Mayor Tymchuk explained that the Council or a vote of the people
would decide on Urban Renewal or Neighborhood Development Plan as it
is now called.
Ben Henderson asked if we didn't have enough credits for storm sewers
and first block too?
March 6, 1969, is end of time for agency unless NDP is set up.
When questioned as to whether or not Low Cost Housing in the Urban
Renewal area would give the City any credits, Ashby said no.
Wear stated that $100,000 has already been spent in study, believe
storm sewers would help everybody.
Rudy Ruppe stated that everyone would benefit from any improvements
made.
Mrs. Burdick feels they have been kept in the dark. What possible
right have we to take Dr. Amick's property?
Tillis asked if it was too late for a vote of the people?
Was told yes, unless they asked for an extension which would extend
the life of the agency to submit a feasible plan.
Hanson said that after the meeting with Nile Paull, HUD believes they
should ask for an extension.
George Marks said he would not go for an extension Unless they could
assure them they would go ahead with the project.
Hanson questioned whether or not the people of Reedsport could vote
intelligently on Urban Renewal?
Mr. Marks said whether it was an intelligent vote ( to Mr. Hanson)
or not, it would be the wishes of the people.
2/2^/69
Hearing
305
Mr. Johnson said that under the original plan, we have an 8 block area
approved. Now under the Neihgborhood Development Plan, no longer
Urban Renewal, has opened naw avenues for improvements. Should look
at it thoroughly before throwing it away.
Dawn Peseau asked if it would be possible to consider Block 8l without
condemnation? This was answered with a yes.
Walter Murphey feels that if it is put to a vote now, it will be turned
down, but if they could see them doing something, believe they would
go for a project. Should use what we have available.
^ George Williams feels it makes sense if we spend credits toward storm
; sewers. Lot better to tear down old buildings and have land available.
Peseau asked how essential the storm sewers were to the City?
Mr. Johnson explained that during high water, the sewage disposal plant r '
cannot possibly treat all the sewage, so what they could not treat, would
be pumped into the river as raw sewage.
This plan has been approved by the State Sanitary Authorities, but do
not believe they would let us do it for possibly more than one year
before they would say we are polluting the river. At this time, we
are not required to separate the storm sewers from the sewage.
Ruppe asked for a show of hands of those for using portion of credits
for storm sewers, curbs, streets, and other credits earmarked for land
acquisition by agency for people who want to rehabilitate their buildings.
As yet. Urban Renewal area is only 8 blocks. Triangle must be desig
nated by Counc//as NDP before the full $1214.,000 credit is due. Will be
eligible for major portion of #320,000 credits next year.
Mrs. Burdick asked why all the appraisals have been kept secret?
Alden Paull stated that this was government policy.
Henderson .asked if it would be possible to relocate the liquor store?
Ashby stated that the Triangle for NDP is ninety-some acres, 8 block
approved area, nineteen plus some acres and area protected by the
dike is seventy-six point ine acres.
Mr. Ruppe *s question again was brought"up as to show hands that would
be for using 50^ of the credits toward storm sewers, curbs, sidewalks,
and streets and the other 50^ being used for land acquisition by the
agency for those who want to rehabilitate their buildings?
Although the count is not listed, several raised their hands when the
part was added that the land acquisition was for those who wanted to
^ rehabilitate their buildings.
Don Bowers questioned Mr. Ashby as to how the property owners in Block
81 feel?
Mrs. Fields is willing to sell (no stipulations).
Dr. Amick, no unless by vote of people.
Mrs. Boyfes, yes but with certain specifications or qualifications.
Mr. Grubb not contemplated.
A:J.so was told by Mr. Ashby that no specific figures had been discussed
with anyone.
Mr. Henderson asked when and if council votes in the Triangle, will
Fairway Motors be eligible for SBA loan?
Fairway Motors (Mr. Bratten) informed the Council that they are
already eligible for an SBA loan to build anywhere in Reedsport.
Want 60,000 square feet.
2/2'|/69
Hearing
Ashby stated that the agency will not purchase any block, unless
something is there to go back. They are required by law to hold
hearings.

Hutter, Bud Gibbons, Archie Mustoe,
Lin Swain
The meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk.

Committee. Motion was made, seconded and carried, that nominations
be closed. Roy Henderson was elected Budget Committee chairman
by a unanimous vote.
Nominations were opened for secretary of the Budget Committee.
Grant Dunn was nominated for secretary. Motion was made,
seconded and passed that nominations be closed. Grant Dunn
was elected secretary by a unanimous vote.
City Recorder, Irving Johnson, presented the Fire Department
Budget and explained the items included.
Rudy Ruppe expressed the feeling that the Fire Chief-?.s
ddlary was not enough as listed and suggested a. figure of
$1000 yearly. Roy Henderson made the recommendation that
this salary be raised to $1,000. Recommendation approved..
Budget Committee members were in agreement as to the need
for raising the firemen's wages to $2.$0 per hour. Fire
Chief Zack Turner explained the need for additional reimburse
ment for two Assistant Fire Chiefs, stating that the additional
responsibility placed upon these two men made this necessary.
After some discussion decision was made to recommend that
these two men be paid an additional amount hourly rather than
a set yearly salary. Fire Chief Zack Turner explained the
need for another two-way radio, an item listed in the budget.
He stated that he was in general agreement with the budget
as presented.
Police Budget was discussed. Mr. Johnson explained items
in the budget and the amounts listed.
Mr. Ruppe expressed concern over the listing of just one new
police car in this budget due to the condition of the present
police cars. Grant Dunn suggested that the one police car
be purchased as listed on the budget and that the possibility
of a serial levy for purchase of the second might be the bfest
solution.
Rudy Ruppe asked for an explanation of the item listed by
Police Chief Hale for $600 for police reserves. Roy Henderson
made the recommendation which was agreeable to the group that
this item be left!in the budget but be reduced to $300.
Rudy Ruppe stated that he believed further adjustment in the
Police Chief^^s salary should be made. A figure of $5700
was recommended.
Mayor Tymchuk requested a recess to discuss the matter of
salary for City Recorder, Irving Johnson. Mr. Johnson was
asked to leave the meeting while this matter was under
discussion.
Mr. Tymchuk stated that he felt Mr. Johnson^s salary was
long overdue for an adjustment considering the responsibilities
of the position and the number of years Mr. Johnson has been
with the City. Similar statements were made by past mayors
Roy Henderson and Gaylord Vaughn, Mr. Ruppe stated that
he has been in, fact doing the work of' a City Manager and
yet not being paid for that position. The group was in
agreement that this was the case. Gaylord Vau^n suggested
the figure of $12,000, Motion was made, seconded and
passed by a unanimous vote that the Budget Committee
recommend thatJ^Mr. Johnson*s salary be raised to $12,000.
City Recorder, Irving Johnson, went through the entire
proposed budget explaining items as listed.
Concern was expressed by Ron Hanson that the budget did
not include enough money to take care of needed repairs
to streets. All agreed that for the present it was best
to stay within the six percent limitation but that the
need for these repairs should be kept in mind and that
plans should be laid for meeting these needs in the future.
The need for another policeman was discussed with Chief
Hale. There was general agreement as to the need and
discussion followed as to how this man could, be hired
and still keep within the budget amount. No decision was
reached. Grant Dunn expressed his belief that the Council
should set the number of police to be hired and that it
should not keep, coming up each year as a problem for the
Budget Committee to decide.
Some time was spent discussing the $8925 item in Capitiil

Mr. Harmes from the firm of Cornell, Howland, Hayes & Merryfleld
reported on his preliminary studies of the City of Reedsportt
water system. He had reviewed previous studies made on the
water system and felt that some conflicting statements had
been made. He proposed that the City consider having a com
prehensive study made on the water system comparable to that'
made for the sewerage system In 1964* Such a study would carry
at least 20 years into the future. He felt that there was need
to consider other lakes or sources of supply for the future.
Estimated cost of such a study would be in the neighborhood of
ip6500 to $7$00. Mr. Harms suggestion was that the City consider
making application to HUD for financial assistance for a long
range study.
For the present Mr» Harms proposed that a study be made of the
supply and the size of the pipeline needed for the tunnel.
They would also consider an alternate plan of putting a pipe
line over the hill. His estimated cost of this study would be
5P500. CH2M will submit a letter to the City with their suggestions.
Ron Hanson reported that the Police Committee had decided to
postpone opening bids for a police car and return the one bid
submitted by Thompson Pord Sales, Bids will be called for a
1970 model instead of 1969 and it will probably be September
before bids can be opened.
William Jayne recommended that the City open bids for the
sewage disposal plant and sale of bonds on August 11, 1969.
Motion was made, seconded and passed that this recommendation
be adopted. (Bid opening and bond advertising same day)
City Recorder Irving Johnson reported on the meeting he and
Mayor Tymchuk had with the Corps of Engiseers in Portland.
They requested that the Corps delay any constuctlon on the
protective devices until after the dike is finished and that "
they make tests this summer checking those that have been
installed to find out the amount of electrolysis and the
need for protective devices.

and not by water line.

PIRE - Recommendation was made by Councilman Rudy Ruppe that
the City immediately enter into a serial levy for the purchase
of fire equipment as requested by Fire Chief Zack Turner. He
further recommended that a contingency fund be set up to take
care of future equipment needs.
City Attorney William Jayne stated that it is his opinion that
a serial levy over a period of five years is the best method
but that the levy should not be brou^t up for election before
the end of the year. The time prior to that should be spent
educating the public on the need for such a levy. Mr. Johnson
recommended that the Pire Committee present figures to the
next council meeting showing the difference in insurance costs
between a Class 5 and a Class 6 rating. Such figures could then
be presented to the public.

the youth committee formed by the n6xt council meeting.

Mayor Tymohuk reported that he had met with Mr, Richardson from
the Urban Renewal Agency and had been informed that there will
be a delay of from 60 to 90 days in getting the money for the
start of the storm drains. Mr, Richardson assured the City
that the money will be available but that there has been this
delay because of changes in Urban Renewal on a national basis,
Mr, Norvin AShby stated that the local Urban Renewal office can
operate until the end of October on funds which they now have^
The contract with the government expires October 6 and it may
be necessary to i^equest an extension of time. There is enough

Renewal Board that the local office be kept open.
