Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk.
Minutes of the September 14, 1970 and the September 21, 1970
continuation meeting were approved as mailed.
Mrs. Svend Knudsen protested the exclusion of the waste from Reedsport
Cheese Plant to the new sewage treatment plant. Discussion followed.
City Attorney William Jayne stated that the State Quality Environ
mental Control Commission had advised that this waste cannot be
dumped into the river but had given approval to dionping it into
International Paper Con^jany's effluent pond. International Paper
Company had gi^jnsn verbal approval to this arrangement.
Resident engineer, James Schwing, reported that the Reedsport
sewage treatment plant is sized only to meet the demands of domestic
waste for a maximum of 7700 people. The oxygen demands for the
treatment of whey are far too great to be met by this plant. It
would cost an additional $200,000 to construct a facility adequate
to take care of this type of waste.
Mayor Tymchuk stated that the City has done everything it can to
work out a solution to the problem and the matter is now one to be
settled between the State and the Reedsport Cheese Plant. The
deadline for cutting off cheese plant wast6 from the city sewer
system is now October 23, 1970.

The contracting of police services with the Douglas County Sheriff's
office was brought up for discussion by Mayor Thomas Tymchuk.
Mayor Tymchuk introduced John Truett, Douglas County Sheriff, who
discussed the proposed contract. Major points pointed out favoring
such a contract were:
1. Savings in money for the City
2. Elimination of duplicate services
3. Better pay benefits for employees
Discussion followed. Opposition to the proposal centered on:
1. Loss of local control
2. Fear that police protection for the City of Reedsport
would not be as good if administered by the Sheriff's
Department
Sheriff Truett emphasized the fact that the City of Reedsport
could write into the contract any amoiint of control which it
wished to retain• The budget would be negotiated and would provide
for any number of patrolmen to work within the city limits that
the city wished to pay for. Changes could be made if they were
deemed necessary and the contract could be cancelled on thirty
day notice.

City Attorney William Jayne ,
Absent: James Umger
Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk. Purpose of the meeting
was to answer questions and listen to conplaints regarding the two
street improvement programs known as Project # 1273 and Project
# 1290. Only one letter had been received in the city office
objecting to Project # 1273 which involves paving in the vicinity
of the Douglas County low cost housing. Roy Erichsen, from the
firm of Harlan, Gessford, Erichsen answered questions concerning
sidewalks, costs etc.
Project 1290 which includes the area b^ind the A & W Drive In
had letters representing four property owners who objected to
this project. Questions were answered concerning the plans for
this area.
There were not enough letters received against either project to
stop them. Both projects were approved and bids will be opened
on May 24, 1971 at 8:00 P. M. at the City Hall.
The following bids were opened for furnishing the new police car:
Fairway Motors - (with trade in) 2986.95
Thompson Ford Sales - (with trade in) 3055.18
Motion was made, seconded and passed that City Administrator I. G.
Johnson check the bids and award contract to the low bidder.
Planning Commission Chairman William Hardy reported on action of
the Planning Commission. Recommendation was made that variance
of five feet requested by Ron Shepherd for his building on Crestview
Heights be approved.
No precedent was being established in granting this variance as
it was felt that the error in calculation was \mderstandable
because of the pecularity of the street. Discussion followed.
Motion was made, seconded and passed that the City Council approve
the action of the Planning Commission in granting this variance.

I i
Mayor Tymchuk Brought up for consideration a request made by j
Gaylord Vaughn, Secretary of the Port Commission, that the City
budget $500 for advertising purposes along with the Port Commission.
Advertising in the Wall Street Journal (West Coast Area) was
being considered for waterfront property and other property avail
able for development•
Discussion followed. Opinions were esqpressed for and against such
action.
Councilman Ruppe recommended that the secretary be instructed to
write to the Port Commission stating that the City wishes to
cooperate in every way with the efforts of the Port Commission,
but it is impossible to take definite action on such short notice
without having time to look further into the matter. Action now
seems tmwise as long as there is such confusion regarding the State
Land Board.
Ralph Stuller, Budget Committee member, stated that in his opinion
the e^enditure of such an amount for promotional purposes might
be a very good investment for the City and that some money should
be set aside on a regular basis for such a purpose.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson said that there may be money
already set aside which could legally be used for such a purpose,
but that the City is somewhat restricted in what it can do in
such an area.
Budget was again discussed with some items clarified.
Motion was made, seconded and passed unanimously that the Budget
Committee approve the budget as presented.
Mayor Tymchuk presented the budget to the City Council for approval.
Motion was made, seconded and passed unanimously that the budget
for the year 1971-72 be approved as presented and.that City

brought before the next meeting of the Council of Governments.
Report of City Administrator
Letter was read from the League of Oregon Cities regarding the non-funding
of the Bureau of Governmental Research. City Attorney William Jayne
and City Administrator Johnson stated that they feel that services and
information fumi^ed by this bureau, most of it free, are vital to
small cities.

' Councilman James Unger reported that the Park Committee approved the
request made by Alvin Goetz for a horseshoe area in the Lions Club

become very congested with too many activities planned for the limited
amount of "space. Mr. Unger will talk to the Park Committee about
this suggestion and report back at a later date.
Councilman Unger reported that the pole has been installed and that
everything is ready for the PUD to go ahead with putting in underground

Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk.
Minutes of the October 9, 1972 regular meeting were approved.
City Administrator I, G. Johnson reported on information which is
available on the Federal Revenue Sharing program. Reedsport's share
is estimated between $80,000 and $100,000 yearly. Broad guidelines
available on the spending of this money indicate that there will be
few restrictions, but money and interest must be kept separate from
other city money in a fund that is readily recognizable. A supplemental
budget must be printed in the paper before any money can be spent and
an accounting must be made of how the money is spent. Revenue sharing
money cannot be used as matching money for any other federal program.
The City Council will have to establish priorities for use of the
money. More information will be available on the program by the next
council meeting.

Bay sewage disposal plant to the sludge basins at the Reedsport

Streets. Bill Grice, who wants the area for space for parking school
busses, agreed to gravel the alley and keep it open for people to get

City not vacate the street but allow Mr. Grice to fence and use this
area provided he improves the alley to city specifications with the
stipulation that the street is to be returned to the use of the City
if it is needed. City Attorney William Jayne will be consulted as to
the legality of such an arrangement and the request will be submitted
to the Planning Commission for their recommendation.

Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk.
Minutes of the November 6, 1972 meeting were approved.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson read a ,letter from George Grubb,
County Engineer, which stated that the coiinty wished to allocate ,
the 1% of gasoline funds designated for bicycle and foot paths ^
to the cities for use in construction of these facilities. Such
bicycle pat^s would later be continued to county roads.
Mr. Grubb suggested that he meet with the City Council in January ^
to discuss .this proposal and make plans.
Mayor Tymchuk recommended that this matter be discussed with the
County Commissioners at their meeting in Reedsport on December 20,
and that a letter be sent to Mr. Grubb expressing the interest of
the Council in the proposal and offering to set up a meeting date.
A proposal that the county be allowed to construct a septic tank
disposal basin in conjunction with the Reedsport sewage disposal
plant was discussed. Decision was made to refer this matter to
the engineer before making any decision.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson reported on information which is
now available on revenue sharing. Most cities plan to^ use this,
money for capital improvements although there are few restrictions
on usage and may include public safety, special seirvices, environmental
protection. At the present rate the City of Reedsport would have
$82750 to spend this fiscal year. Some possible projects were
discussed.
Motion was made by Nimmler, seconded and jpassed \inanimously that the
City of Reedsport not make up a supplemental budget for the money
available but put the money into savings to earn interest until
July 1, 1973 and include this money in the regular 1973-74 budget.

COMMITTEE REPORTS

Some problem spots in streets caused by the recent cold weather
were discussed. Such areas will be repaired as soon as the weather
and availability of materials will permit. I

District to allow fencing of a portion of city street. Since no
vacation of street was requested the Planning Commission felt that
it was not their problem. Matter was referred back to the Street
Committee.
Mr. and Mrs. Jolly Dawson requested that some action be taken to
alleviate the speeding problem on Arthur Drive. A speed bump was
suggested as a possible solution. Matter will be studied by

Youth - Rudy Ruppe, Chairman
Chairman Rudy Ruppe reported on progress of efforts of a group of
interested citizens to get a recreation district fomed. The group
had met with a state recreation specialist who outlined for them
various methods of handling the problem. Recommendation was made
that possibly .the best method for this area would be to work through
the combined efforts of city and school. To some extent this has
been done for .the past few years, but it is felt that now a more
compr^ensive year-around program is needed which would include
, interest activities for all ages. Sue Williams, Community Action
I Director, stat.ed that some $2000 should be available from that
agency for such a project. Chairman Rudy Ruppe will continue to
pursue the matter and will set up a meeting in the near future which
will include Cpiincilmen Nimmler and Unger, representatives from the
school and Port Commission and other interested groups and citizens.

REGULAR MEETING OF THE COMMON COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF REEDSPORT AT

Present: Mayor. Thomas S. Tymchuk
Councilmen Rudy Ruppe, President; Albert Niinmler, H. J.
Patterson, Albert Ninimler, Ronald Hanson,. Oscar Anderson,

City Attorney William Jayne
Assistant City Attorney Stephen Miller
Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk.
Minutes of the regular council meeting of September 10, 1973 and
the special meeting of September 8, 1973 were approved.
PUBLIC HEARING ON ANNEXATIONS
Petitions for annexations were: ^
1. Petition by International Paper Conpany for annexation of ^
approximately 1.39 acres extending from the end of Country
Club Estates as platted down to part of the Hubbard property j
(sixty, foot strip).
2. Petition from Fern Acres Inc. for annexation of 27.23
acres in the vicinity of Coxintry Club Estates.
Citizens expressed concern over annexation of only a sixty foot
strip for access purposes. They felt annexation should include a
100 ft. strip on either or both sides. Feeling was e3q)ressed that
provisions should be made for improvement and maintenance of access
road as well as Ranch Road leading to it. Citizens participating
in the discussion were James Symington, Dr. William Bacon, Bill
Lillebo, Jack Unger, Kenny Kent and Planning Commission members
Robert Cline, Mervyn Cloe, William Hardy and Brent Davis.
Bill Lillebo requested that annexation should provide a full width,
legal access to the adjoining property which would meet County
subdivision requirements.
City Attorney William Jayne stated that plans for maintenance of
access roads are up to the Planning Commission and City Council when
plcui is subnu.tted for a subdivision.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that our Subd^-vision^ Ordinance
requires that the developer provide suitable access road according
to city standards.
City Attorney William Jayne stated that the only way to inprove
Ranch Road would be through formation of an improvement district
which requires consent of 60 per cent of the adjoining property
owners, and that it is not possible to form an improvement distrii^
for vacant property.
Mayor Tymchuk recommended that further study of the problems of these
annexations be made and that another public hearing be called for
October 22, 1973 at 8:00 P. M. at the City Hall.
Motion was made, by Hanson, seconded by Anderson that the hearing
be postponed and that another hearing be called for October 22, 1973 :
at 8:00 P. M. at the City Hall to consider the two annexations. |
Motion passed. Aves 6 Navs 0 j
HEARING ON ZONING ORDINANCE # 513
Planning Commission Chairman Robert Cline es^lained the changes made
on the zoning map and proposed that the map and Zoning Ordinance #513
be adopted as the official zoning ordinance.
Jack Unger protested the change of zoning on his property saying that
it was originally zoned commercial. This matter will be researched
and if an error was made, it will be corrected. There was no intent
to change the zoning of this property.
Attorney Robert Woods represented Dean Wooley regarding zoning of his
property. Complaint was that the present zone of light industrial
is too restrictive.
Planning Commission Chairman Robert Cline e^lained that we have a
Planned Unit Development Ordinance which will allow development
of such property for other uses in an orderly manner. Also, it is
possible to make application for a zone change at some future date.
Planning Commission member William Hardy explained that the
establishment of a light industrial zone was to try to establish
a buffer zone between heavy industrial and residential and thus make
some sense of the zoning regulations.
Assistant City Attorney Stephen Miller attenpted to find out what
zone classification Mr. Wooley would prefer for his property .
Attorney Woods explained that it was impossible to pin it down at
this time.
Bill Lillebo made the following rec[uests:
1. Provision ^ould be made to allow temporary signs in RA zone.
2. On page 26, the C-2 Zone should peimiit C-1 uses.
3. On page 30, M-1 Zone should permit R-2 use.
4. On the map, zone should be C-2 at Highway 101 and 12th and
at Highway 101 & 10th.
Planning Commission Chairman Robert Cline agreed that an error had
been made in not listing that C-2 Zone should permit C-1 uses, and
this would be corrected.
A1 Herra requested that the property in the Urban Renewal area be
zoned R1 or R2 instead of light industrial to provide for much needed
multiple housing. Pleuining Commission member William Hardy es^lained
that ^is had been done because this area was not generally regarded
as a good housing area.
Kenny Kent requested a change in zoning for the area between Reedsport
Concrete Products and Reedsport Mill. It was explained that this
cannot legally be done at this time but could be accomplished later
by a req[uest for zone change.
Planning Commission Chairman Robert Cline again explained that there
might be future need for changing some areas but that this Ordinance
and map is an attempt to get a set of zoning regulations to meet the
needs of a growing community and provide a framework for reasonable
change to meet the future needs of the City.
Motion was made by Ruppe, seconded by Hanson that Zoning Ordinance
#513 and zoning map as presented be approved and made the official
zoning for the City of Reedsport. Stipulation was made that the
Unger property zoning be researched to ascertain if an error had
been made in this zoning and if such error is fo\md it will be corrected,
Also included in the motion is that page 26 be corrected to read
that C-2 Zone should permit C-1 uses. Motion passed.

REGULAR MEBTlNQ OF COMMON COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF REEDSPORT
AT THE CITY HALL ON FEBRUARY 11, 1974 at 8:00 P. M. AT THE CITY HALL
Present: Mayor Thomas S. Tymchuk
Coxincilmen Rudy Ruppe, President; Ron Hanson, Albert
Nintmler, H. J, Patterson, Oscar Anderson, Ben Henderson
City Administrator I. G. Johnson
City Attorney William Jayne
Assistant City Attorney Stephen Miller
Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk.
Minutes of the January 7, 1974 meeting were approved*
Mayor Tymchuk introduced Edith Stuller who represented a group of
citizens and organizations interested in promoting bicycle and foot
travel safety. Mayor Tymchuk stated that Douglas County has limited ^
funds available for bicycle paths and that Reedsport may be able j
to get some. Additional efforts should be made to determine what | |
other sources of money are available for this program. Around $1000 [ ,
should be available from money paid to the City by the State of Oregon.
Councilman Patterson reported that a letter has been submitted to
the State Traffic Safety Commission stating the intent of the City
of Reedsport to take part in the Traffic Safety program. Participation
will make the City eligible for $2500 for a two year period for bicycle
paths.
A meeting was arranged for Wednesday, February 20, 1974 at 8:00 P. M.
with Councilmen Patterson and Hanson, Mrs. Stuller and other members
of her committee.
Ray Dunn e^q^ressed the concern of the Rotary Club over the dangerous
dip in N. 22nd near the Forest Hills area. School traffic is heavy
in this area making an extremely dangerous situation. It was requested
that the committee contact City Administrator I. G. Johnson and together
try to work out a solution to this problem.
Action on petitions that had been filed in the office of the City
Recorder was requested by Councilman Ronald Hanson. Petitions
requested the election of councilmen by precincts. City Attorney
William Jayne requested that the Council by its motion request that
the proposed ordinance be put on the ballot at the primary election
on May 28, 1974.
Motion was made by Hanson, seconded by Ruppe that the following
ordinance be put on the May 28, 1974 primary election ballot:
AN ORDINANCE PROVIDING THE PROCEDURE FOR THE ELECTION OF CITY COUNCIL
MEMBERS AND REPEALING ALL ORDINANCES OR PARTS OF ORDINANCES IN CONFLICT
HEREWITH AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY. The City of Reedsport ordains
as follows: Election of Councilmen to the City Council of the City
of Reedsport shall be done pursuant to the City Charter and as further
provided hereinafter; nominations for Councilmen ^all be by district,
three in number, which shall be the same as the present three voting
precincts and have the same boundaries. A Councilman must reside
in the district in which he was nominated to be seated officially.
The election of Councilmen, however, will be by the citizens of the
City of Reedsport at large. Motion passed. Aves 6 Navs 0
Mayor Tymchuk brought up for clarification the matter of the City's
involvement in attempting to provide land for building of the new
National Dunes Recreation Area headquarters. He outlined step by
step negotiations which covered a two year period of efforts to obtain
an 11 acre tract from U. S. Plywood - Chan^ion International to offer
as a site for the Dunes Recreation Area headquarters. It was not
until late in 1973 that U. S. Plywood gave any indication that they
might be willing to donate the land to the City of Reedsport.
STATEMENTS BY MAYOR TYMCHUK
He at all times acted in good faith. His only interest in the matter
was in getting the Forest Service to locate the National Dunes
Headcparters in Reedsport. Neither he nor any other city official
received anything from these negotiations but a lot of hard work.
The good of the City of Reedsport was the only motive. Mayor Tymchuk
personally contacted real estate agencies and others with available
February 11, 1974
land and requested them to offer whatever they might have to give
the Forest Service greater choice and thus increase the chances of
Reedsport being chosen as the location for the headc[uarters* There
were no "under the table" dealings. The City Council was at all
times aware that these negotiations were in progress. There was no
official action of the Council because there was nothing to act
upon# but they were at all times informed. No agreements can be
entered into until the City has a deed to the property and all agreements
must be approved by the pity Council at that time. No lease price
has been set by the City on the land which may be leased to Mr. Ladiam,
a Portl^d contractor who was successful bidder on construction of
the National Dunes Recreation Headquarters. The City never made Mr.
Ladum any offer. An offer would be subject to decision of the City
Council. Ladum made his bid well aware that the City does not yet
have a deed. It is his neck that is stuck out.
STATEMENTS IN OPPOSITION TO CITY INVOLVEMENT
William Lill^bn
Dealings with U. S. Plywood and contractor Ladum were, if not illegal,
immoral, because other councilmen were not involved.
Mrs. Dean Wqq:^c>y
Mayor Tymchuk acted improperly in negotiating without action of the
City Council.
Dean Woolev
He deserves an expiration of why he was allowed to bid against a
"stacked deck". While h^ was going to the expense of submitting a
proposal for land across the highway from the U. S. Plywood site,
he was unaware the City was attempting to promote the other property
as the site for the headquarters.
William Lillebo
Favoritism shown Ladum by the City gave him an unfair edge over others
who might have bid. How could the City offer Ladum a lease if the
City had no deed.
William Lillebo
If the Mayor or any other city official is trying to say that this
contract might go to any other city, they are full of "SHIT". If
you can't spell it, 1*11 spell if for you S-H-I-T.
STATEMENTS SUPPORTING CITY INVOLVEMENT
Va^qhn, Assistant Secretary of Port of Umpqua Commission
Mr. Vaughn read a letter stating that the Port of Umpqua Commission
gives its vinqualified support to the City of Reedsport in its
endeavor to obtain real estate for the proposed siting of the head
quarters of the Dunes National Recreational Area and commending the
officials for their efforts.
City Councilman Rudv Runpe
He took no part in negotiations but was kept informed of what was
being done. Council is happy about the progress being made.
Hank Harrington
Information was given at a Parks Committee meeting that such negotiations
were in progress an4 that acquisition of U. S. Plywood property would
probably make some land for parks and recreation esroansion.
Merv Cloe
It was known only that the land might be available, that the City
might not get the property. Lillebo and Wooley have nothing to
complain about. City officials were to be commended for pressing
to make property available.^ Mr. Cloe knew about the transactions
and praised the actions which the Mayor, Port and Council have taken.
Ladim was a contractor, well aware of whatever risks he might be
taking in bidding on property for which the City as yet has no deed.
Albert Lewis
He 3cnew land mighti^^vailable. He inquired and got the same answer
that others had been given —the Icind was not for sale. He gave up
the project as he was not interested in a one year lease.
Ray Dunn
It was common knowledge that the City was dealing for the U. S.
Plywood site and he did not see how Wooley could have been in the
dark about it.
Gerald Hutchins. District Ranger for Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area
Mayor Tymchuk had no input or previous knowledge of the decision
for the location of the headquarters. Because .the City does not yet
have title to the headquarters site and Ladum has yet to lease the
land he needs, Hutchins acknowledged that there is a possibility that
e Forest Service lease agreement may not be possible to carry out.
February 11, 1974
City Attorney William Javne
Mr. Jayne had telephone conversations and correspondence with Mr.
Quigley of the U. S. Plywood - Champion International Corporation
and has been assured that a deed will be forthcoming with the restriction
that the property is to be used for recreational purposes only. If
not used for Dunes Headquarters it will revert back to original owners.
Gavlord Vauahn
The sole intent of action of city officials was to offer a choice
in Reedsport - not squabble about which site, but one in Reedsport
as opposed to some other town.
Acting City Attorney Stephen Miller presented ORDINANCE NO. 516
AN ORDINANCE REGULATING THE MANNER IN WHICH THE CITY OF REEDSPORT
BILLS FOR SEWER AND WATER SERVICE TO PERSONS CONTRACTING FOR THE
SAME: AND REPEALING ANY AND ALL ORDINANCES IN CONFLICT HEREWITH .
WHETHER IN WHOLE OR IN PART (allowing the Office of the City Recorder ^
authority to bill those persons using the City's sewer and water !
services on a bi-monthly basis).

Motion was made by Patterson, seconded by Nimmler that Ordinance
No. 517 be approved. Motion passed. Aves 6 Navs 0
A letter from the League of Oregon Cities regarding 24 hr. life
insurance coverage for volunteer firemen was presented by City
Administrator I. G. Johnson. Premium payments for coverage of
volunteer firemen was returned to the City when the League of Oregon
Cities were advised by Standard Insurance Company that full term
life insurance could not be made available to vblimteers on tlie same
basis as insurance for full time city enployees. This letter was
notification that Standard Insurance Company has now agreed to provide
the $10,000 full term life insurance coverage to volunteers at the
same rate as for full time municipal employees.
Motion was made by Hanson, seconded by Anderson that the City be
authorized to provide the volunteer firemen with 24 hour life insurance
coverage in the amount of $10,000. Motion passed. Aves 6 Navst O
Attorney Winfield Muffett represented Laskey-Clifton Corp. in a
dispute with the City of Reedsport over a billing of $807 for work
done on a break in the city water main. After some discussion
Acting City Attorney Stephen Miller recommended that Mr. Laskey and
Mr. Clifton meet with their attorney, Mr. Muffitt, City Attorney
Stephen Miller, City Administrator I. G. Johnson and the Water
Committee for further negotiations to try to work out a solution ^
to the matter. Meeting will be held at the City Hall on Tuesday
evening, February 12, 1974 at 8:00 P. M.
Robert Cline, Planning Commission Chairman, reported on the January 28,
1974 meeting of the Planning Commission. Planning Commission determined
that the use planned for the Glen Compton property on Sixth and
Winchester was not conpatible with the zoning ordinance. Decision
was made to hold a work meeting to discuss road planning. County
engineers will work with the Planning Commission to work out a
compr^ensive road pleui.
Glen Compton stated that he could not see why the City was so anxious
to put an parks and playgrounds and yet not be willing to put good
taxable property to use. Mayor Tymchuk stated that the Planning
Commission d^ision was bound by city ordinance.
COMMITTEE REPORTS

A problem created by the overflow line from the reservoir causing
the road to the Masengale property to wash out was discu^ssed. The

future remodeling and use of the Community Building.
Report of City Attorney
Acting City Attorney Stephen Miller recommended that a new method
of handling traffic tickets for out of town people be used whereby
no bail is required and the drivers license is not held in lieu of
bail. Instead, each person will be informed by the arresting officer
that failure to appear in court on the charge will result in the
City requesting that the Department of Motor Vehicles suspend that
person's drivers license. Such request to the Motor Vehicles Division
must be accompanied by a fee of $5.00 which the City is required to pay.
Motion was made by Patterson, seconded that out of town traffic
violators not be required to post bail or drivers license. Failure
to appear in court will result in the Department of Motor Vehicles
being requested to suspend drivers license. Motion passed. Aves 6

into the possibility of obtaining a flood insurance program through
the Federal Government. He will investigate further and report.

real test during the high waters of January. Five hundred gallons
of gasoline were used to keep the pumps going and approximately $1800

done to one pumping station which has since been repaired. Approximate
cost of flood damage would be $2500.

City of Reedsport provide cash payment of $1000 for the Estuary

A payment of $5000 due to Barnes and Wright Construction Co.
for work on the Community Building was discussed. Architect
Vaughn Miller had recommended witholding payment until fault is
determined for the warping plywood on the building.
City Administratpr I. G. iTohnson maintained that this was unfair
to the contractors, since the fault obviously was with the architect
or the plywood manufacturers. Mr. Johnson recommended that this
payment be made.

was discussed. City Administrator I. G. Johnson recommended
that at least 7 persons be appointed to represent the different
interests in the City such as bicycle paths. Community Building,
street improvement, piimp stations, etc. Such an Advisory Committee
is needed for citizen input into the spending of Revenue Sharing
and other Capital Improvement funds. Mayor Tymchuk stated that
this committee will be appointed at the next meeting of the City
Coimcil.
Merv Cloe reported for the Planning Commission on the need for
regulations on pole building construction. Planning Commission

requested by the Council at this time.
March 11, 1974 33

the Village Inn Tavern at the Umpqua Shopping Center was discussed.

liquor license as there are now already 15 outlets within the City.
Mr. Blankenship, A1 Herra and George Hutter also opposed granting
of another license. Councilman Ben Henderson requested that the
matter be tabled until another meeting as he did not feel that
he had had sufficient time to investigate the matter.

City Attorney Stephen Miller reported on the study which he had made
of proposed gambling ordinances and gambling ordinances which have
been passed by other cities in the state. He made it clear that an
ordinance allowing social games would still not legalize the playing
of bingo as it is commonly played as that is a lottery and prohibited
by criminal code and the state constitution. Under such an ordincince
the house would be allowed to make no income from the games.
H. F. Bethel stated that he was in favor of passing a gambling
ordinance as he felt it was good public relations for an establishment.
City Attorney Stephen Miller recommended that a public meeting be
called to get input from the citizens of the town regarding their wishes.

out an ordinance which can be presented to the people. A committee
made up of Councilmen Henderson, Hanson, and Anderson; Police Chief

by Bill Lillebo for easement for sewer outfall line from his proposed
Town House development to the Forest Hills area, isubject to the filing
of a plat of the area with easement incorporated as a part of the plat.
Planning Commission Chairman Robert Cline reported that the Planning
Commission has approved the concept of the Lillebo sewer plan.

grant permission for a utility easement to be incorporated within
the final plat of Town Houses development to serve as seuiitary sewer
outfall. Motion passed. Aves 5 Navs 0
City Administrator I. G. Johnson reported that he had received
a letter from the Department of Environmental Quality commending
the plant operator on the efficient operation of the sewage disposal
plant. He also reported that work on the paving on 22nd Street
will be completed as soon as Johnson Rock Products can fit it into
their schedule. The City is still trying to work out the problems
with the Corps of Engineers regarding the location of one new pump
station.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson presented a letter from Robert
Cline, Chairman of the Planning Commission requesting that the
City Council amend Ordinance No. 275 to change the Planning
Commission from an advisory body to a body empowered to act upon
all zoning requests. The City Council would still serve as a Board
of Appeals. Reasons for recommending the change were:
1. Eliminate cost of duplicate advertising for public hearings.
2. Eliminate duplicate hearings except in case of appeal.
3. Reduce work load on City Council.
4. Accelerate action on zoning requests, eliminating the 30-90
day delay involved now due to duplicate hearings.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson recommended that this request be
referred to the City Attorney for his recommendation.
September 16, 1974
Mayor Tymchuk reported that the reason for the delay in designating
bicycle paths is that the City is still waiting for a report on the
study made by the State regarding this proposed route. Signs cannot

®i~Centennial celebration in this area to replace Mr. and Mrs.

Allowing groups to use the Community Building while it is still under

hearings was again discussed. City Attorney Stephen Miller stated
that he is waiting to get more information from Planning Commission

away from the City Council but to streamline procedures to es^edite
action on zoning requests by eliminating duplicate hearings.

hold the first public hearing on the Community Development Program
on Monday, January 13, 1974 at 8:00 P. M. at the City Hall. Motion

that Greyhound Company was requested to furnish the City with the
necessary signs to restrict the parking in this area but as yet none
have been received. Alternate solutions were discussed. Mayor
Tymchuk recommended that the original agreement be adhered to that

stated that he will furnish Mr. Sturgeon with a copy of the letter
which he sent to Greyhound Company requesting the signs.
Request for permit for a security patrol was discussed. Chairman
Patterson of the Police Committee stated that he feels that basically
the security of the City rests with the Police Department, that anyone

would have to be coordinated with the Police Department. To insure
that the City Council has control over any such licensing he requested

Mayor Tymchuk and the City Council requested that City Administrator
I. G. Johnson draw up a job description for someone to be hired as
his assistant,
A gambling ordinance was again discussed. Councilman Hanson stated
that he felt any action on an ordinance at this time is unnecessary
since no petitions have been presented asking to have the issue put
on the ballot. Rev. Oliver Riley and Clarence Ford protested the
passage of a gambling ordinance. George Vvheat explained that the
request for an ordinance which he had sutmitted was different from
the original request in that it requested only that social games
be allowed for members of fraternal organizations, clubs or churches
and not for the public.
Mayor Tymchuk expressed the view that the ordinance requested should
be drawn up and read and presented at three different meetings. This
would give the Council time to consider it carefully and also give
time for citizens to present their views. City Attorney Stephen
Miller was instructed to draw up such an ordinance, patterned after
the Roseburg ordinance but leaving out certain specified items. This
ordinance will be presented at the next regular meeting of the City
Council.

Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk. Mayor Tymchuk
e:^lained that the meeting was called for the purpose of getting
citizen input to help establish priorities for the spending of funds
which may be available to the City through the Community Development
Program of the Housing and Urban Development. The City of Reedsport
is eligible to receive as much as $183,000 per year over a five year
period from these funds if an acceptable program is worked out which
meets all requirements. This is the first of three public meetings.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson was called upon to explain the
program. Mr. Johnson stated that the program is planned mainly
for meeting the needs of low and moderate income people and can not
be used for many projects. Money can be used to upgrade blighted
areas,- to construct and improve neighborhood facilities, senior centers,
youth centers, historic sites, to beautify urban lands and many other
projects. Projects for which this money can not be used were also
listed. Application for the funds must be in by March 1, 1975. It
is the responsibility of the City Council to receive citizen ideas
and then establish priorities for an acceptable program.
Mayor Tymchuk called upon citizens to give their ideas of needs for
the community.
A large group of senior citizens presented a request for funding
for a senior citizen facility in the amount of $38,640.00. Speaking ''
in support of this program were Ralph Wagner, Jake Borge, Earl
Birdsall, Clarence Ford, Ted Gabriel and Walter Pickett.
Other persons supporting projects were:
Louise Fritz - es^anded and improved park facilities and progr
Alan Stevens - water line improvements in the Bowman Road area
Don Dillon - sanitary sewer improvements on Winchester Avenue
Peter Mulder - supported sewer improvements on Winchester Avenue!^
Ivan Allen - sewer improvements on Winchester Avenue
Ora Ferguson - street improvements in needed areas
Police Chief Powell - felt that a youth center and program
would greatly benefit the area
Donald Blabon - youth center
Pete Mulder - garden lots for senior citizens
Tommy Rice - supported any project which would benefit the most
people
Jody Rice and Rev. Oliver Riley stated that they were present
mostly for information
City Administrator I. G. Johnson explained that water and sewer projects
may not be acceptable if other programs are available for that purpose.
Mr. Steve Cox of H. E. E., Inc. e:»^lained that there are such programs
under D. E. Q. and E. P. A. but he doubts that any answer from them
would be available by March 1.

January 13, 1975

Mr. Johnson stated that it might be possible to combine a facility
for use of both senior citizens and youth. Councilmcin Nimmler
supported the idea. Senior citizen e^^ressed very little support
for this idea. Councilman Hanson asked who would be responsible for
operational costs if such a facility were to be built. City
Administrator Johnson stated that it would have to be a public building
and the City would have to assume all operational costs. Senior
Citizens expressed the view that they were in a position to help with
operational ejq^enses.

Mayor Thomas Tymchuk presented the preliminary plans for an addition
to the City offices. Council meeting and work session were called
for Monday, April 14, to study the plans and to act on some City
Ordinances to be presented by City Attorney Stephen Miller.
Ben Henderson reported that several meetings of the Park Committee
and one of the Community Building Committee had been held. Jackie
Viestenz, Chairman of the Community Building, presented a tentative
02 April 7, 1975
set of rules for operation of the Community Building. Rules were
studied and some changes suggested. City Administrator I. G.
Johnson suggested that groups holding dances in the building be
required to have police officers present. He felt that the City
has a responsibility to the ta^qjayers to see that the building is
taken care of. Suggestion was made that the committee consider the
rules for a month and decide what changes may be advisable.
Councilman Ben Henderson reported that the Park Committee had met
with County Park Director Tom Keel and David Anderson of the State
Fish and Game Commission. Mr. Keel stated that his staff will
come up with ideas for a coiiprehensive plan by June.
Jack Blum, Chairman of the Parks Committee, reported on progress of
his committee that has been ejqjloring all avenues of funding for
park development. Mr. Blum requested clarification of the City's
commitment to the Dunes Headquarters on the extra land adjacent
to the Dunes Headquarters building. City Administrator I. G.
Johnson e:^lained that U. S. Plywood had given the land to the
City originally with the understanding that it was to be used for
the National Dunes Headquarters. Original deed stipulated that
the Dunes Headquarters have the use of whatever part of the land
they need. Land not needed by the Headquarters could be used by
the City for park purposes compatible to the Dunes Headquarters.
The Dunes Headquarters are now formulating plans which will require
ahother two to three acres of the land. This would leave the City
approximately 7 acres of land for park development. A letter from
Jerald Hutchins, Area Ranger, was discussed. This letter requested
that this parcel of land be developed for park uses more compatible
to the Dunes Headquarters than ball fields or motor bike track
course. Mr. Blum stated that this is the only parcel of land within
the city large enough to accommodate a ball field and that this is
a pressing need of the community. His committee feels that it
might be possible to develop a buffer zone for quiet activities
between a ball park and the Dunes Headcjuarters. The problem of
filling the area if a ball park were established was discussed.
Some 80,000 yards of fill would be needed.
Mr. Blum requested a commitment for a specific amount of money that
the City can provide as matching funds so that his committee may
proceed with making application for available funds for park
development. Mayor Tymchuk assured him that this will be taken
into consideration at the budget meetings coming up soon.
Councilman Hanson brought up the need for repairs at the library
building. City Administrator I. G. Johnson was requested to meet
with the librarian to discuss the needs of the library and to make
clear what the responsibilities of the City are.
Application for change of liquor license for Ward's Tavern from
Babe Peterson to Theodore Gillem was presented. Police investigation
has been completed and approval given.
\
Motion was made by Anderson, seconded by Patterson for transfer of
liquor license for Wards Tavern from Babe Peterson to Ted Gillem.
Motion passed. Ayes 6 Nays 0
Recess called. j
Meeting re-convened.
Request by Leonard Larson that he be furnished city water was
again discussed. Councilman Oscar Anderson stated that he had
been investigating and that City Attorney Stephen Miller has been,
attempting to determine if Mr. Larson is in fact within the city
limits! If he is within'the city limits there is no way of furnishing
him with city water until the new water loop is installed in the
Bowman Road area possibly next summer. If it is established that
he is not within the city limits, then City Ordinance prohibits
furnishing water to anyone outside the city limits. City Attorney
Stephen Miller stated that he should be able to make a ruling on
the matter by the next regular council meeting.
April 7, 1975
Councilman Oscar Anderson requested that time be given to a work
session for water department problems at the Council meeting on
Monday, April 14.
Councilman Anderson presented a letter of complaint citing three
violations of protective covenants on Forest Hills property. City
Attorney Stephen Miller stated that enforcement of such covenants
is the responsibility of the property owners in the area through
court action.
Councilman Hanson reported that the drainage problem in the area of
Vick Chevrolet Garage is being corrected. Southern Pacific is
buying the pipe and city crews are digging the ditch and installing
the pipe.

rate for Reedsport be raised to $5.00 or $6.00, which amount would become
the base rate when the time comes that meters have to be installed.

this time as their rates have been raised since those in Reedsport.

taxpayers have had to pay for $135,000 of water improvements which

sewer service to some outlying homes. The matter was discussed. Mayor
Tymchuk stated that before any decision is made it should be determined
what the line is worth. Councilman Anderson also suggested that it

Revolution Bi-Centennial Administration.
Connie Gibbons went on record as opposing this $25,000 item being
listed as a line item in the budget as ^e does not feel the City
should be locked in to this amount. City Administrator I. G. Johnson
stated that it could be put into the budg^t but under Revenue Sharing
that does not necessarily lock the City to that amount if it is not
needed. Mayor Tymchuk recommended budgeting the $15,000 so that the
committee can comply with regulations necessary to securing other funds.

went on record saying that the City is very fortxinate to have someone
of Mr. Johnson's capabilities vdio is able to do this work in such an
excellent way. Councilman H. J. Patterson stated that he felt Mr.
Johnson should be commended for doing an outstanding job with limited
funds.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that this has been a very
difficult budget to put together because for the first time it has
been necessary to use Capital Improvement funds to run the City. Next
year it will be necessary to ask to exceed the 6 per cent limitation
unless there is a big boost in Revenue Sharing f\mds.
Motion was made, seponded and passed to adjourn the meeting.

Myrtle Sykes reported that the Bi-Centennial scroll for re-affirmation
of the Declaration of Independence has arrived and signatures are being
obtained. The scroll will be delivered to Roseburg on Saturday to be
presented to the Bi-Centennial wagon train by Cheryl Allen, a Reedsport
girl v^o is queen of the Roseburg rodeo. Mrs. Sykes also reported that
work, on the Bi-Centennial park is progressing with more and more people
becoming involved. Linda Noel received money from both the Port of
Vjjpqua and the County for a sign at Winchester Bay. Tickets for the
salmon dinner are now on sale. There will be a plcuining meeting on
June 26 at the Douglas County building at» 7:00 P. M. at which time
the State Bi-Centennial Director will be here. All interested persons
are urged to attend.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson reported that he had talked with
Pete Mulder about work to be done in the Bi-Centennial Park. Some
minor earth moving is contemplated along with removal of some binish.
Mr. Johnson esqjressed concern about any cutting down of the slopes
and felt that much of the natural vegetation should be preserved.
Connie Gibbons stated that :^e had received requests for grading to
be done in Henderson Park. Mr. Johnson stated that he had referred
all requests to the director of the recreation p^gram at the school
so that he could tell city crews what work they wished to be done.
Ben Henderson reported that engineering is being done on the property
adjacent to the Dunes Headquarters. The Headquarters have requested
an additional two acres.
Mayor Tymchuk appointed Albert Nimmler and Connie Gibbons on a committee
to make recommendation regarding a donation for the Queen of the Un^qua
rodeo.
City Attorney William Jayne reported on a letter which he had written
to Attorney Winfield Muffett, Jr. regarding the research on the status
of the Leonard Larson property. Mr. Jayne's letter contained the
fbllowing statement: "At the request of Mr. Cline, I have again
researched the question of whether or not the real property owned by
Mr. Larson in Section 4, Township 22 South, Range West of the Willamette
Meridian, Douglas County, Oregon, is within the corporate limits of the
City of Reedsport. I find that by Ordinance No. 398, passed by the
City of Reedsport on December 6, 1954, Mr. George Rowe annexed a portion
June 9, 1975
of real property in the Northeast Quarter of the Southeast Quarter
of Section 4. The annexation extended south 1082.3 feet more or less
to the Southerly Boundary of the Northeast Quarter of the Southeast
Quarter. In January of 1963, Mr. and Mrs. Rowe sold a portion of this
property to Leonard Larson shown on the Assessor's map as parcel 3100.5
and in July of 1963, the Rowes sold a parcel to Frank Rose, Assessor's
No. 3100. It is my opinion that both of these parcels of real property
were annexed to the City of Reedsport in 1954 and were in the City
of Reedsport at the time they were sold to Mr. Larson and to Mr. Rose,
and are still within the City of Reedsport."
City Administrator I. G. Johnson reviewed some of the history of these
transactions v^ich were made at the time Mr. Purvis was City Attorney.
When Mr. Purvis moved away many of the records were lost with the
resulting confusion.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that there is still no way that
city water service can be provided to Mr. Larson until the new Bowman
Road loop is installed later this summer. Even then it will probably
be necessary for Mr. Larson to install a pump to get the water to his
property, if there is a health problem it will also be necessary for
Mr. Larson to hook into the city sewer system.
After much discussion it was decided that there was no way to reasonably
e3q>ect Mr. Larson to remove his trailer house from his property although
the trailer ordinance was in effect at the time he put it there. The
only control after so much confusion and time is to never allow it to
be replaced with another trailer house or any additions to be built onto
it.
H. J. Patterson, Chairman of the Police Committee, reported that Patrolman
James Cameron had won the shooting award at the Police Academy.
Councilman H. J. Patterson reported that the Estuary Study is now completed
and copies have been distributed to all participating public bodies.
Chairman of the Planning Commission, Robert Cline, has requested time
to Itudy the report before public hearings are called to approve the
study.
Ron Hanson brought up a discussion of the feasibility of using a new
seal coat on a ten block experimental strip of city street to detemine
if it is a practical solution to the street maintenance problem. City
Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that he would like to talk to the
county engineers to get more information about the process. Such work,
he feels, should be done by an e3<pert in the business rather than by
city crews.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson read a letter from Mast Bros. Automotive
requesting that they be allowed to rent a lot of Urban Renewal property
on a month to month basis for off-street parking. Mayor Tymchuk requested
that Mr. Johnson, Oscar Anderson and Marilyn Townsend meet with Mr. Mast
to decide on a fair price and whatever regulations are deemed advisable.
Motion was made by Nimmler, seconded by Patterson that city Administrator
I. G. Johnson, Marilyn Townsend and Oscar Anderson meet with Mr. Mast
and decide on a fair price and necessary regulations. Motion passed.

New rates to be charged Winchester Bay residents for water was discussed
at length.
Motion was made by Gibbons, seconded by Nimmler that thevwater rates
in Winchester Bay be set at 25 per cent higher than those in Reedsport.
Motion passed. Ayes 6 Nays 0
Rates to be charged two courts in Winchester Bay which cater to recrea
tional vehicles was discussed. Opinion seemed to be that they ^ould either
pay for the maximum number of spaces and pay on the establi^ed rate or
install meters. It was suggested that council members study the matter
further and not make a decision until another meeting is held.
Motion was made by Hanson, seconded by Nimmler that the rate for water
service to Bohemia, Inc. on Bolin Island be at a minimum rate of $77.92
for a 4" water line until a meter is installed. Motion passed. Aves 6

Councilman Hanson suggested that the additional funds brought in by the
increased rates be set aside as a sinking fund for future water system
in^rovements. City Administrator I. G. Johnson recommended that first
the money used from the Capital Improvement Fund be repaid and then
that a reserve fund be set up for water improvements.

city Administrator I. G. Johnson announced that a man is coming Wednesday
evening to meet with the City Council to be considered as an applicant

The Rev. June McGuire gave the invocation.
Minutes of the regular meeting of June 9, 1975 and the special budget
hearing of June 30, 1975 were approved.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson repo];-ted that the special work
session planned for July 15 would have to be postponed. Word has
been received from the Environmental Protection Agency that the Wades
Flat sewer extension system is now back on their priority list for
1975. It is listed as 50th in the state. It will be necessary for
Mr. Johnson and engineer Roy Erichsen to meet with E. P. A. in Portland
to determine just what this means as to when work can be started on
this project.
Myrtle Sykes, Bi-Centennial Chairman, reported that the Fourth of July
celebration in Reedsport was a success. The City was presented with
a Bi-Centennial flag which is to be flown over the Community Building.

John simoneau is the last police office to attend the Police Academy
and that he is doing well. The auction of unclaimed articles held
by the Police Department netted $531.55.
The feasibility of constructing a dumping station for calipers and
trailers was discussed. Councilman Ronald Hanson stated that he has
contacted the Dunes Recreation Headquarters to ascertain if it is
possible to locate one on their site, but as yet he has received no
definite answer. The possibility of locating one at Winchester Bay
was discussed.
\
\ Donald Laskey again brought up for discussion the use of the old
water line as part of the sewer system for Winchester Bay after
completion of the new water line. He disagreed with an opinion
given by designing engineer, Roy Erichsen, who had stated in a letter
that he believed the old line should be kept in use as a water line
to provide service to homes along the line. Mr. Erichsen felt that
tapping into the new concrete steel cylinder line would be difficult.
Mr. Laskey felt that this was not true and ejqplained methods for
tapping into this line which he had investigated. City Administrator
I. G. Johnson stated that it would not be possible to make any changes
in the plans for this E. D. A. project without again goin,g to tjie
State for approval. Opinion of the Council was that no c^ecisio^ could
be made until they have had the opportunity of discussing the matter
again with the engineers.
City Attorney William Jayne stated that he will have a condemnation
ordinance ready by the next meeting.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson presented for approval an agreement
between Mast Bros, and the City of Reedsport. Agreem^ent alJLowed Mast

City Administrator I. G. Johnson
City Attorney William Jayne
Meeting was called to order by Mayor Thomas S. Tymchuk.
Minutes of the July 7, 1975 regular meeting were approved.
A public hearing was called for the purpose of considering the
Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Phase I of the
Community Block Grant Fund program in the Bowman Road area of the ^
City of Reedsport.
Roy Erichsen of the engineering firm of HGE, Inc. esqjlained the scope |
of the project which involves reconstruction of Bowman Road for 2300
lineal feet from Highway 101 to Arthur Drive. Project includes paving,
addition of storm drains and installation of a high level water line
to give additional water pressure to the area. Mr. Erichsen stated
that in his opinion the increased benefits of access, drainage, pollution
control and water pressure far outweigh any long or short term adverse
environmental effects. Mr. Erichsen recommended that the City of
Reedsport proceed with the project.
Mayor Tymchuk called for questions or comments from the audience.
Pete Mulder asked if sidewalks were planned along Bowman Road. Mr.
Erichsen stated that plans call for curbs but not sidewalks in this
phase of the project. Steve Cox of HGE, Inc. stated that some areas
are limited but that they will try to make provisions for building
sidewalks at a later date.
Councilman H. J. Patterson requested clarification as to where storm
drain water would terminate. City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated
that surface water will empty into the canyon at the end of Bowman
Road.
Councilman Nimmler requested clarification of the term "high level
water line". Roy Erichsen e3q>lained that this water loop will be
on the upper side of Bowman Road and will be independent of the other
system. New system will retire a booster pump which will increase
the pressure on the upper side of Bowman Road by 30 pounds.
Councilman Hanson asked if the project will be done this year. Mr.
Erichsen stated that the City of Reedsport is now asking for release
of funds and it may be possible to get some work done this fall.
Motion was made by Councilman Nimmler, seconded by Councilwoman Gibbons
that the Mayor and City Administrator be authorized to sign the
request for release of funds from Housing and Urban Development for ^
the Reedsport Community Development Block Grant project. Motion '
passed. Ayes 6 Nays 0

if need can be established.
Need for the facilities study was discussed. City Administrator
I. G. Johnson stated that matching money can be paid from Community
Development Funds as the upgrading of the sewer system is Phase II ^

MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE COMMON COUNCIL OF IHE CITY OF
REEDSPORT ON SEPTEMBER 8, 1975 at 8:00 p. M. AT THE CITY HALL
Present: Mayor Thomas S. Tymchuk
Council Members Ronald Hanson, President; Oscar Anderson
Connie Gibbons, Albert Nimmler, H. J. Patterson
City Administrator I. G. Johnson
City Attorney William Jayne
Absent: Ben Henderson
Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk-
Minutes of the regular meeting of August 11, 1975 and the continuation
meeting of August 18, 1975 were approved-
Mayor Tymchuk reported that the State Highway Department had rejected
the proposal of the City of Reedsport that parking be allowed on one
side of the highway along the proposed bicycle route. The matter
was turned over to Councilmen H. J. Patterson and Ronald Hanson to
contact the Bicycle Committee and determine what further action should
be taken.
Gaylord Vaughn CPA submitted his audit report of city books. Mr-
Vaughn commended Bernell McClay on the fine way in which city books
were kept and gave special commendation to City Administrator Irving
Johnson for Kis excellent handling of city finances.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson reported that he had contacted
Johnson Rock Products regarding two areas of town which need street
repairs. A price of $1500 was quoted for repairing a section of
Winchester Avenue which is sinking. $4500 was quoted as the price
for an overlay on a block of 22nd Street adjacent to Winchester Avenue,
Mr. Johnson reported that he had a firm do an I & I test with TV
cameras to determine the extend of settlement on Winchester Avenue.
The road in that area has settled at least ten inches. Mr. Johnson
recommended that this section of Winchester should be repaired and
sealed to prevent any more water from going through and doing further
damage. In his opinion $4500 is too high a price for the repair of
22nd Avenue since the street is not actually breaking up but is just
rough. He recommended doing nothing to 22nd Street at this time.
Councilmen Anderson and Hanson stated that they had received many
complaints about 22nd Street, but since there obviously is not enough
money to do everything, they would go along with Mr. Johnson's
recommendation. Councilman Nimmler stated that he felt the heavy
flow of traffic on 22nd Street going to and from the Forest Hills
area warranted that this street be repaired. Mr. Johnson stated
that this is not the only access to Forest Hills and that actually
the section of 22nd Street across the highway near the high school
is receiving more traffic- There is $50,000 budgeted for street
repairs but there are many streets in town that need repairs more
than 22nd Street. Mayor Tymchuk agreed that the repair of Winchester
Avenue is the most urgent problem. Councilman Hanson recommended
that the Council follow the recommendation of the City Administrator.
Councilman Patterson recommended that the $4500 be spent on the
repair of streets other than 22nd Street. Council agreed to approve
the recommendation of City Administrator I. G. Johnson that Winchester
Avenue be repaired and that nothing be done to 22nd Street this year.
City Administrator I. G- Johnson presented the following RESOLUTION:
"Now, therefore, be it resolved that Tom Tymchuk, Mayor be, and he
is appointed as representative of the City of Reedsport, Douglas
County, Oregon, for the purpose of conducting negotiations for the
acquisition of governmental grants and to sign all grant related
documents for the purpose of planning and constructing sewage treat
ment systems in said City of Reedsport, Douglas County, Oregon."
Motion was made by Hanson, seconded by Patterson that the resolution
as stated be adopted. Motion passed. Aves 5 Navs 0
City Administrator I. G. Johnson reported on the status of floathouses
in the schofield. He stated that contrary to allegations,
the city of Reedsport has never denied owners the right to hook onto
the city sewer system. They have been informed that whenever they
can come up with a plan acceptable to the State of Oregon, the Corps
of Engineers and the D» E. Q. then the City will consider their
application, it is a problem for engineers and the overall cost will
September 8, 1975
probably determine whether or not such a hook-up is practical-
City Engineer, Roy Erichsen, reported on the progress of projects
now under way. The $388,000 Bolin Island water line project should
be completed and ready for final testing in about two weeks. The
old water line will be left in place for at least a year to allow
ample testing time to determine if there are any problems in the
new line. Bids for the City Hall addition will be opened September 15,
1975 at 4 O'clock. This will allow one week to review the bids
before the next council meeting. Plans for Phase III of the Community
Building are just getting started. The City of Reedsport has received
a letter of credit for Community Development Funds for the Bowman
Road project. Engineers are working on the design for the high level
water line and pumps. Bids will be let this fall. The paving contract
for Bowman Road will probably be let next year. Mr. Erichsen ^
suggested that at the time this is done the City might do well to
recheck prices for repairing other streets. Everything necessary j
for the master sewer facilities plan is ready to be submitted for the
final review and hopefully acceptance. Mayor Tymchuk requested that
immediate work be done on the lighting in the main ballroom of the
Community Building so that it is completed before the fall community
activities start. Mr. Erichsen stated that he could call for bids
in September and work should be completed in October.
Clarence Hahn requested approval of a transfer of franchise for
Hahn's Sanitary service to Mr. Robert Horning and sons with a ten
year extension in addition to the two years and three months left
of his present franchise. City Attorney William Jayne stated that
he could see no problem in doing this as the City has the power to
"revoke the franchise if problems develop.
Motion was made by Patterson, seconded by Anderson to grant a transfer
of franchise of Hahn's Sanitary Service to Robert Horning cuid Sons
with an additional ten years as long as there is satisfactory per
formance. Motion passed. Ayes 5 Nays 0
Mayor Tymchuk thcUiked Clarence Hahn for his many years of satisfactory
service for the City.
Myrtle Sykes, Chairperson of the Bi—Centennial Committee reported
that the Armed Forces Recognition day had been a success. National
Guard units hauled over 200 loads of dirt to the Bi-Centennial park
and will probably come back another time to haul more dirt. A
meeting of the Bi-Centennial Committee was held August 28. Tom Keel
of the Douglas County Parks Department reported at that time that
negotiations for the old Coast Guard building at Umpqua Lighthouse
State Park are almost completed. This building will be renovated

all council members review the Compr^ensive Plan for the Police
Department and submit written comments to the Police Chief.
Glin ^Martin represented several families on South Hill Dri^ye
^ Streets who are concerned about some excavation going on ^ove their property. Stated concerns were that South Hill Drive
has always had a drainage problem and that this excavation will only
magnify the problem because of a more rapid sluffing off of a very
steep hill. He stated that the excavating is being done without
pe^it, without guidelines for drainage, without inspections and
without layout by qualified soil engineers or a controlling ordinance.
Mr. Martin had been told by the Planning Commission that there is
controlling such excavation for minor partitioning ^d that they will have to talk to the owners or sue if damage is
done to their property. Mr. Martin felt that preventive measures
having to take the matter to court. He asked that the City Council request the Planning Commission to draw
up an ordinance covering this situation.

September 8, 1975
Charles Knowlton speaking for the developers stated that they have
done everything possible to avoid disturbing the natural drainage
of the area. They have had a consulting engineer and are trying to
do everything possible to satisfy the people. Mr. Knowlton stated
that they are tipping the lots so that most of the drainage will
be carried off through SCotts' canyon.
Mayor Tymchuk referred the matter to the City Attorney for study
and an opinion. Councilman Hanson was also requested to study the
problem.
\ Mr. Martin presented a copy of Chapter 70 of the Uniform Buildijig
Code governing Excavation and Grading and requested that it be
adopted. Building Inspector M. R. DeVelbiss stated that Chapter 70
^ is being brought up before the Planning Commission for action at
the next meeting. He esqjlained that the reason this had not been
adopted was that the State did not adopt Chapter 70 and City had
just adopted the State Code.
Fire Chief Zack Turner reported that he has sent out certified letters
on four buildings which must be repaired or condemned. He had not
received answers from the owners. He is also working on the problem
of installing two new badly needed fire hydrants.
Mr. Hanson of Hanson Automotive requested an answer from City Attorney
William Jayne on his request to be added to the City towing list.
Mr. Jayne stated that he cannot be on this list because he is not
within the city limits. Mr. Hanson stated that he is the only
licensed wrecker in the area and referred to HE 2941 and 2971 and
Senate Bill 590 on the disposition of abandoned cars. Mr. Jayne
stated that he will study the bills and give a report at the council
meeting next Monday.
Councilwoman Connie Gibbons stated that Grover Woods had contacted
her about the storing of old wrecked cars on unfenced lots within

wrecked car lot. City Attorney William Jayne stated that he will
study SB 590 on fencing criteria.

there had been engineering reasons why this had been done but that
this might be changed at a later time. Councilman Hanson and Mr.
Johnson stated that in their opinion the line was adequately
anchored at this point.
Councilwoman Connie Gibbons wanted to know if it would be possible
to plan some way to serve Winchester Bay with water at times when
the line goes out of service. City Administrator I. G. Johnson

as Reedsport. Long range plans for the area include a reservoir
at Winchester Bay as well as for the Wades Flat area of Reedsport.
During the recent construction there was no way of preventing
the water outages, but hopefully this problem will not have to be
faced again.

SPECIAL MEETING OF THE COMMON COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF REEDSPORT ON
OCTOBER 27, 1975 at 8:00 P. M. AT THE CITY HALL
Present: Mayor Thomas S. Tymchuk
Council Members Ron Hanson, President; Oscar Anderson,
Albert Nimmler, H. J. Patterson, Ben Henderson, Connie
Gibbons
City Administrator I. G. Johnson
Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk for the purpose of
discussing the proposed plan for supplying water to the City of
Gardiner.
\
Mayor Tymchuk stated that it will probably be necessary to have a
series of meetings and possibly a public hearing before any decision
can be made.
Mayor Tymchuk introduced William P. Miller, Bob Rexes and Chester
Russel from International Paper Company and Dick Nored, engineer from
HGE, Inc.
Mr. Miller stated that it is a recognized fact that the Gardiner
water syst^ is inadequate to meet the new standards and regulations
and it is imperative that a solution be worked out. International
Paper Company is anxious to get out of the water business and looked
carefully at the various alternatives and came up with a proposal to
the city of Reedsport one year ago last July. From the letter and
further discussion it was concluded that International Paper would
have to go further than what the letter indicated. They would have
to rebuild the distribution system within the City of Gardiner. The
proposal submitted to the city of Reedsport last week were proposals
to meet all requirements for the next twenty years for the City of
Gardiner. International Paper would build the distribution system,
make the connecting tie to state regulations and turn the system over
to the City of Reedsport for operation. Total cost to International
Paper Co. was estimated at $850,000. Mr. Miller stated that what
he would like now is to review the proposal, answer questions and
discuss any suggestions.
October 27, 1975
The only alternatives suggested for the City of Gardiner were to drill
wells or continue with their present system. Both alternatives were
considered unworkable.
Mayor Tymchuk requested discussion on the three different proposals
which were;
1. international Paper Co. to continue to run the system
2. Gardiner to form a water district and operate the system
3. Reedsport to merge the water system into its own operationally
and physically
Mr. Miller stated that International Paper favors giving the system
to the City of Reedsport as they do not wish to continue in the water
business. ^
The proposed plans were studied. City Administrator I. G. Johnson
requested esqjlanation of the need for an 8" line to the paper mill
^if Reedsport is being asked only to furnish water for domestic
purposes. Mr. Miller stated that International Paper has its own
water supply for the mills and that the eight inch line was designed
to take care of future residential expansion. Mr. Nored and Mr.
Miller stated that the 8" pipe called for in the plan was a matter
open to discussion and compromise.
Much time was spent discussing what would be a water rate equitable
to both Reedsport and Gardiner. It was decided that this would
require further discussion and negotiation before any decision is
made. City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that regardless of
whether they go to a flat rate or not, the system in Gardiner should
be set up so that meters can be installed at any time. Mr. Miller
requested thatcity Administrator I. G. Johnson come up with a cost
figure for producing water for the City of Gardiner.
The possibility of forming a water district in Gardiner was discussed.
Mr. Miller stated that he felt it would be difficult i^ such a small
town to operate both a water district and a sewer district as the
same people cannot serve on both.
\ \
Counciln\an Anderson started that there is^ no cjuestion but that water
will have to be furnished to Gardiner, it is just a matter of deciding
how best to do it. Mayor Tymchuk stated that a way must be found to
be fair to the people of Gardiner and to Reedsport. Mr. Miller
stated that he would like to have a feedback from the people of
Gardiner expressing their wishes.
Motion was made by Patterson, seconded by Hanson to approve the
concept of furnishing water to Gardiner based on a mutual agreement
to be worked out. Motion passed. Ayes 6 Nays 0
Mr. Russel asked if anyone knew if there were people in Gardiner
willing to serve on a ^ater board. Myrtle Sykes stated that she
felt there were.
r
Mr. Miller stated that he will work with City Administrator I. G
Johnson and Dick Nored to come up with some workable figures.
He will then meet with the people of Gardiner before December 1
and get citizen input into the problem. A special meeting of the
City Coiincil will be called early in December to try to resolve the
matter.
Meeting adjourned.

Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk.
Minutes of the regular council meeting of October 6, 1975 and the
special council meeting of October 27, 1975 were approved.
^ John Antos, Chairman of the Bicycle Committee, presented a proposed
revised plan for a bicycle path in Reedsport. Proposal would
change the previously submitted plan to have cyclists follow on
the east of side of Winchester Avenue to 10th Street, then follow _ _ -
10th Street over to Highway 101. After discussing various alternatives
it was decided that the only fair way would be to have a public
hearing to get the reaction of businessmen along the route regarding
restricted parking. City Attorney William Jayne stated that unless
a special ordinance is passed the City cannot force bicyclists to
follow a specified route. City Administrator I. G. Johnson recommended
that the Bicycle Committee present their plan to the State Highway
Department for approval and then call for a public hearing. Mr.
Johnson requested that the Bicycle Committee submit the map and plan
to the city office and they will be sent through proper channels to
the State Highway Department.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson reported on a letter v^ich he had
received from the State Highway Department giving an estimate of
$900 for replacement of a loop amplifier at the 22nd Street signal
light. Mr. Johnson stated that there is at present no problem with
the light. Since there is some question as to v^ether the problem
there is one of maintenance or replacement, Mr. Johnson recommended
that any action on the matter be postponed until summer. Council
approved this recommendation.
City Attorney William Jayne presented a Bargain and Sale Deed for
transfer of city property (Lot 4, Block 34, Wades Flat Addition)
to Edward XVolfgram. Purchase price had been paid off and contract
recorded, but a deed had never been issued.
Motion was made by Patterson, seconded, that the City of Reedsport
issue a clear deed to Edward X-^olfgram for the property purchased
from the city (Lot 4, Block 34, Wades Flat Addition). Motion passed.

Myrtle Sykes, chairperson of the Bi-Centennial Committee, reported
on Bi-Centennial activities of the area. Mrs. Sykes requested that
a concerted community effort be made to accommodate Bi-Centennial
cyclists who,would be going through the area next summer. After
much discussion it was agreed that this should be a combined effort
of the city, schools and other organizations of the town as no one
group has the facilities or time to carry on such a program.
Wes Hillier reported action taken at the regular Planning Commission

50 men for week-ends. City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated
that there is no money in the budget for such a projects present, ^
but it is possible that the entire amount could be paid from ^

Patterson and chief of Police Powell meet with Roy Erichsen to
discuss plans for an addition to the police station.

Meeting v/as called to order by Mayor Tymchuk.
Minutes of the November 10, 1975 regular meeting were approved.
The Land and Water Use Plan for the Umpqua Estuary was discussed.
Councilman Patterson stated that suggested adjustments had been
made in the original draft and he could see no problems in accepting
the plan as submitted. City Council can take action only on the
part that lies within the City of Reedsport. Planning Commission
Chaiman Robert Cline stated that he would like to know why the
rating for Steamboat Island had been changed. If this had been done
as a result of citizen input, he was willing to accept the change,
but if for some other reason then he would like to protest it.
City Attorney William Jayne stated that the City has the right to
voice an objection and has a responsibility for some planning for
a six mile limit outside the City. Robert Cline requested that he
go on record as opposing the rating given to Steamboat Island in
the Land and V7ater Use Plan.
Motion was made by Patterson, seconded by Hanson that the Council
approve the Land and Water Use Plan within the City of Reedsport.
Motion passed. Ayes 5 Nays 0

Jackie Viestenz, Chairperson of the Building Advisory Board, presented
a revised set of rules for use of the Community Building. Rules were
discussed. Committee had investigated the problem of damage to lights
which could be caused by basketball or volleyball players. Architect
had assured them that when lights are finished with clips properly
attached they will withstand such activities. Committee had also
determined that use of liquor in the building is not illegal and
recommended that serving of liquor by private parties be allowed.

an agreement for people to sign holding an organization responsible
for paying for or repairing any damage which is done to the building.

taken by the Planning Commission in November.
Councilman Nimmler requested that members of the City Council and
Planning Commission take a look at the width of the ridge on Crestview
Heights because of some serious drainage problems developing there.
Myrtle Sykes, Chairperson of the Bic-Centennial Committee, reported
that her committee had dropped the idea of providing over-night
facilities for Bi-Centennial bicyclists passing through the area
next summer. Estimated number of cyclists had been increased so
much they felt there were no facilities here adequate to take care
of their needs. Mrs. Sykes also reported that the Bi-Centennial
grant for the park amounted to only $5000 instead of the ej^pected
$10,000. Reason for the reduction was lack of funds. Pete Mulder
reported that his group will go ahead with work on the Bi-Centennial
park as soon as weather permits and work a little harder to make up
for the loss of funds.
December 8, 1975
Mrs. Sykes reported that the Army Corps of Engineers had requested
that a city official be named to work directly with them on Bi
centennial park activities- Ben Henderson was named to this position.
Mayor Thomas Tymchuk suggested that the Bi-Centennial Committee
contact the Bureau of Land Management to try to get a slab from
the "largest and oldest" tree which blew down during the recent
storm. Such a slab could be put in the Bi-Centennial park. Mrs.
Sykes will contact Dawn Peseau to work on this project.
Cheri Taylor of the Youth Committee requested suggestions for some
problems they are having with student government at the high school.
Mayor Tymchuk stated that the Council will give thought to the matter
and try to come up with some suggestions-
Charles Knowlton presented a plan to the Council whereby the ^
Knowltons would donate land on which to put a 250,000 gallon ground ^
storage reservoir to serve Bowman Road and new land developments |
in that area. HGE, Inc. had presented this plan to the City as |
an alternative plan under the Community Development Grant program.
Such a plan would cost approximately $36,000 more than the original
plan for a pressure tank. The plan was discussed and Mayor Tymchuk
requested more time in which to go over the matter more thoroughly
with Roy Erichsen. Councilmam Hanson asked if the City could finance
this additional expense. City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated
that there might be a possibility that this could be financed in
the second year program for Community Development.
Mayor Tymchuk requested that Councilman BqU Henderson contact Mr.
Meserve about the cutting of small alder on city property. Possible
environmental impact should be looked at carefully and also there
should be eome discussion on price.
Water superintendent Bert Bartow reported that four new fire hydrants
are being installed.
Councilman Patterson reported that a group of local businessmen
are furnishing the food for the Police Department Christmas party
in appreciation of services of the Police Department. Mr. Patterson
also requested an executive session of the Council after the meeting.
Motion was made by Nimmler, seconded by Patterson that the Planning
Commission be named the Citizen Involvement Committee to review
citizen input for the Lauid Conservation and Development Commission
in compliance with Senate Bill I. Motion passed. Ayes 5 Nays 0
Tentative plans for supplying of water to Bohemia, Inc. for the
I full development of their facility on Bolin Island were discussed.
Roy Erichsen of HGE. Inc. could forsee some problems in the plan
submitted by Bohemia. City Administrator I. G. Johnson will study
the matter more fully with Mr. Erichsen.
January 5, 1975 was suggested as a possible date for a meeting
with International Paper Co. to discuss the Gardiner water problems. ^
Mr. Johnson will contact International Paper to confirm this date. ^
; I
Motion was made by Patterson, seconded by Henderson that the City
sell some old light bulbs from the city office to the Lutheran i
Church at the rate of $4.00 each for new bulbs and .50 for used
ones. Motion passed. Ayes 4 Nays 0 Councilman Hanson did
not vote because of a possible conflict of interest.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson reported that the manufacturer's
representative has been here to check over the new pump installation
behind Safeway. He and the engineers will try to decide how to
correct the problems there and get the pump into service.
Councilman Hanson reported that the City of Reedsport had assisted
the City of Mapleton during their recent water outage by lending
them needed valves, pipe and fixtures.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson reported on a meeting of the Council
of Governments which he had attended with Mayor Tymchuk. Much time
December 8, 1975
had been spent trying to determine if this body should continue
to exist. Mr. Johnson stated that C.O.G. had provided the best
place for citizen involvement by giving Mayors and other elected
officials an opportunity to get together and discuss mutual problems.
Cities will lose considerable expertise and services provided by
C.O.G. if this body is discontinued. There will be another meeting
on December 19, 1975 at 9:00 P. M. for further discussion.
Councilman Patterson reported that there will be a meeting of the
Transportation Committee on December 11, 1975 to work out a suggej
program.

City Attorney William Jayne.
City Attorney William Jayne stated that Chief of Police Orville
Powell has to fill a vacancy on the police force. Chief Powell
reported that applicants are mostly young and inexperienced. At
the present time he would like to fill the vacancy with an older,

and served on other police forces and has no problems as a result
of his injuries.
Chief Powell has checked into his background with no adverse
findings. He had been cleared by physicians for work on the police
force at Sandpoint, Idaho, chief Powell stated that he wanted to
appraise the Council of all these facts and have their opinions
before hiring him in case problems might develop in the future
with the State Accident Insurance.
City Attorney William Jayne stated that he could forsee no problems.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that he could see no problem
and was willing to take the Chief's recommendation. Councilmen
were polled and each stated that they had no opposition to the

Chief Powell.

a terrific job and would rely on Chief Powell's judgment.

SPECIAL MEETING OF THE COMMON COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF.REEDSPORT

Anderson, H. J. Patterson, Albert Nimmler, Connie Gibbons

Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk for the purpose of
considering a proposal for the furnishing of water service to Gardiner.
International Paper Company representatives met with Gardiner rep
resentatives Ray Daniels, Emily Lovos and Pat Roelle on November 13,
1975 and drew up the following proposal which was submitted to the
City of Reedsport in a letter of December 9, 1975. ^
1. That International Paper Company make the recommended
improvements on the Gardiner Water System bringing it into
compliance with all state regulations. The improvements
would be designed by the firm of Harlan, Gessford and
Erichsen and approved by the City of Reedsport. The cost
of these improvements, estimated by HGE, Inc. at $850,700
would be paid entirely by International Paper Company.
2. That International Paper Company donate the improved system
to the City of Reedsport and that the City assume the
responsibility for continued operation of the Gardiner
domestic water and fire water supply.
3. That the Gardiner Boom Company be dissolved once the transfer
of ownership is completed.
4. That Reedsport charge the Gardiner users a base rate equal
to the rate charged in Winchester Bay, presently $7.50
per month. This rate may rise as future costs increase,
but in no case will the Gardiner rate exceed either the
Winchester Bay rate or 1.5 times the Reedsport city rate.
5. That Reedsport charge the Gardiner users an additional
charge to cover the extra cost of pumping the water. This
extra charge will be either $1.00 per hookup per month or
the actual p\amping cost whichever is larger.
Mayor Tymchuk expressed concern that this proposal might not be
agreeable to the people of Gardiner. Mr. William Miller of International
paper Company gave assurance that this agreement was the result of
citizen input from the people of Gardiner.
Mr. Steve Lanfor of International Paper Company presented figures
showing the estimated cost to the City of Reedsport for furnishing
water to Gardiner. Figures presented, based on an estimated 187
hook-ups, showed that Reedsport could realize an expected net
income of $8,200 to $14,700 yearly above and beyond expenses at ^
the rate of $8.50 per month.
Problems involved were discussed at length. Mayor Tymchuk requested
that International Paper Company operate the newly installed system
for a period of time to make sure that it is working properly before
the City of Reedsport takes it over. Dick Nored, engineer from HGE, Inc.
stated that the City would have the same guarantee on the new system
as they would get on any other system. The contractor's guarantee
would probably be for one year.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson and council members ejqjressed concern
that they had no right to tie future councils to a specific 1.5 figure
as stated in item 4 of the proposal. Pat Roelle, speaking for the
citizens of Gardiner explained that such a figure was thought to be
necessary to give the citizens of Gardiner some control over rates
to be charged. City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that the
setting of rates is entirely up to the city council, but that such
rates have to be justified to the state.
151
January 5, 1976
Attorney Stephen Miller requested clarification as to what the
priorities would be in case of fires. Mayor Tymchuk stated that
the City of Reedsport would have first priority.
Members of the City Council e3<pressed disapproval of being tied to
the 1.5 figure as stated in item 4 of the proposal. City Attorney
William Jayne suggested that it might be more agreeable to omit
the 1.5 figure and state that Gardiner would not be charged any more
than any other out of town area plus a pumping charge which would
be flexible depending upon the cost of pumping.
Councilman Hanson stated that residents of Gardiner should be aware
that there will have to be water rate changes in the future.
City Attorney William Jayne declared himself attorney for the City
of Reedsport in these negotiations with Gary Rossi representing
International Paper Company.
Motion was made by Patterson, seconded by Nimmler that the City of
Reedsport accept the water system in Gardiner as presented in the
proposal except that item 4 be changed to read that the rates in
Gardiner.would be those established by city ordinance for outside
the city rates plus a piamping charge to be determined by the cost
of pumping. Motion passed. Aves 6 Navs 0
City Attorney William Jayne will draw up an agreement to be presented
to the City Council for approval at a later date.

JANUARY 12, 1976 AT 8:00 P.M. AT THE CITY HALL
Present: Mayor Thomas S. Tymchuck
Council Members: Ronald O. Hanson, President, Oscar Anderson,
Connie Gibbons, H.J-Patterson, Albert Nimmler
and Ben Henderson
City Administrator: Irving G. Johnson
City Attorney: William Jayne
City Engineer: Roy Erichsen
Youth Committee: Mark Bedard & Cheri Taylor
Absent: None '
The meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuck.
The minutes of the regular and executive sessions of the Common Council '
that were held December 8, 1975 and the Special meeting of January 5,
1976 were approved.
Mayor Tymchuck introduced City Engineer Roy Erichsen and asked him to
review various City projects that are now underway and projected plans
for future improvements.
Mr. Erichsen stated that the preliminary plans for the Bowman Road Pro
ject are 90% complete at this time. Mr. Steye Cox will be the Project
Engineer. There will have to be three major decisions made by the
Council before they can progress further. They are:
(1) Curbing. Proposed by Mr. Erichsen on North side of street
^ only. Will consider South side curb as an alternate bid.
(2)- Storm Sewers. Discharge to the easterly end of street.
(3) Pressure tank or reservoir on hill above.
\ \
Mayor Tymchuck and other council members agreed that there should be
curbing on both sides of the street. An Assessment District was sugges
ted by Attorney William Jayne with the property owners paying for their
own frontage improvements, to be decided upon by a vote of the Property
Owners, themselves. Since the streets will be excavated to install the
new water and sewer system the City of Reedjsport would be responsible
for the paving.
A motion was made by Ronald Hanson and seconded by Oscar Anderson for
City Attorney William •-'ayne and-City Engineer Roy Erichsen to take
whatever action is necessary to aH^Improvement District for Bowman Road.
Motion passed. Ayes 6 Nayes 0
Mr. Erichsen recommended the Council consider Mr. Knowlton's plan regarding
the installation of the 250,000gallon reservpir on his property. [
Mr. Knowlton would install a 10" line with the city to re-imburse him for
the difference in labor and material it would take to put in a similar
6" line.
The funding of the proposed reservoir was discussed. Mr. Erichsen sug
gested that plans be gone ahead with for a basic bid for construction of
the storage tank. This would give the city an extra few months to "find '
financing for the project. He would be able to quote cost in 4-6 weeks.
Further planning of the project would be tabled until Mr. Jayne and Mr.
Erichsen get the Assessment District for the curbs and gutters underway.
Mayor Tymchuck stated the plans would be presented to the Council upon the
approval of the planning Commission. The proposed Bowman Road Improve
ment plans should be ready for bids in approximately 60 day^-
Charles Knowlton announced that there had been no problems with his ex
cavation above Hill Drive. His plan: is to build 20 homes on the hill
top above Bowman Road. He is scheduled to present his plans before the
next meeting of the Planning Commission on January 26, 1976.
January 12, 1976
It was suggested by Councilman Nummler to tie in Rowe St. with curbing
and street improvements but Mr. Erichsen said he would rather keep the
Rowe Street project separate from the Community Developmeab Project.
Bohemia Lumber Company is in the process of putting the water service
agreement with the City of Reedsport into effect. Engineering problems
may result due to the size of the pump they have installed to fill their
storage tank. Future plans to include Gardiner residents with City
water would very much be effected and would require esqjensive means
to correct the problem. Mr. Erichsen is to meet with an official from
Bohemia about the best way that would be fair to both the City & Bohemia.
(Mr. Johnson will be included, alsQ at the meeting.)
Mayor Tymchuck again mentioned the possibility of an Improveinent District
being initiated for Rowe Street. Plans had been made several years ago
for this project but had^ibeen turned down by the residents along the
street at that time. There is very definitely a need now for improvement.
Mrs. Vernon Leach stated that she had 6" of water in her basement due to
water sloughing off from an excavation above. She wondered if the City
could take action on the property owner responsible?
Attorney Jayne said there wasn't a City Ordinance on excavations so
it wasn't a City Problem.
Charles Knowlton.said he would work with Mrs. Leach to get a petition
started from residents on Rowe Street for a future Improvement Project.
Steve Cox said H. G. E., inc. still had the plans on file in their office
from the other time the project was started. He said he would get a
cost figure established for the residents.
Mr. Erichsen said in closing that the city building improvement and annex
was nearly finished. The need for office furniture should be discussed
soon as it would have to be ordered.
A Liquor License transfer was presented for the Council's approval. The
license is to be transferred from the Seacliff to Martha W. Martin and
Shirley Sluys. Mayor Tymchuck said the application had been very thor
oughly checked and was in good order. Ronald Hanson moved the transfer
be approved by the Council. Oscar Anderson seconded the motion.
Motion passed. Ayes 6 Nayes 0
Fire chief Zack Turner presented an application for the Sumner Fire Dis
trict to be added to a Mutual Aid Agreement. Oscar Anderson moved that
the Reedsport Fire Department accept the ammendment to the Mutual Aid
Agreement to add the Sumner Fire District. Al Nimmler seconded the
motion. Motion passed. Ayes 6 Nayes 0
Mayor Tymchuck announced that Heinz Kaufmann and Albert Dorsey have ful
filled their terms on the Planning Commission. Oscar Anderson moved that
both be re-appointed to the Planning Commission. H. Patterson seconded.
Motion passed. Ayes 6 Nayes 0
Mayor Tymchuck read a letter of resignation from Mr. Robert Cline, Chair
man of the Planning Commission. Mr. Cline's employment forces him to
leave the Reedsport Area. A new member will have to appointed to replace
him. The Mayor announced that applications will be accepted from any
interested person, a woman would' be considered and ari%elcome to apply
for the position. The Planning Commission willappoint the new Chairman.
Mrs. Earl Sykes, Cjliairman of the Bi—Centennial Activity Committee reported
the Bike-Centennial had been cancelled due to lack of accommodations in
the area. The slab of Douglas Fir to be positioned in the Bi-Centennial
Park locally will be discussed further at the next Council Meeting.
Mr. VJesley Hillier reported on the last Planning Commission meeting that
was held December 15, 1975. Mr. Shepherd had presented his proposed
development on Crestview Heights. There is to be a public hearing on
Shepherd's tract January 26, 1976. A Use—variance application was received
from Leroy Chenoweth to operate a greenhouse at 5th Street and Winchester
Ave. Don Laskey had applied for a minor partition on Crestview Heights
but application was tabled pending further investigation.
Cheri Taylor of the Youth..Committee reported that a suggestion from
Mayor Tymchuck had improved their own student Council meetings. Mark
Bedard inquired about the Municipal Bus project. Mayor Tymchuck said it
would be discussed later in the meeting.
January 12, 1976
Finance Committee: Connie Gibbons had nothing to report.
Building, Lights & Playgrounds: Ben Henderson stated the new City Building
was nearly completed.
Mayor Tymchuck suggested an open house after the new City offices are
completed. He appointed Connie Gibbons and Ben Henderson to formulate
plans for some kind of celebration.
V7ater: Oscar Anderson had Bert Bartow report on the subject. Bert
announced that a new fire hydrant would be intalled at Longwood Drive and
Bowman Road, January 14, 1976. The new waterline was in good order.
Police Department: H. G. Patterson read portions of the annual statistic
report that Chief Powell had prepared. The crime rate for the City of
Reedsport is up over 31% compared to 1974 reports. Chief Powell said
this is due greatly to more accurate reporting of crimes and greater
public response to reporting criminal activity^
The Chief announced that Officer Vv'illiam Selby is presently enrolled
at the Police Academy. After 9 months as patrolman he will be certified
with the state.
Streets and Sewers: Ronald Hanson stated that the pump station located
behind Safeway is now operating. With a few minor adjustments it will
be working properly.
the
Several citizens have complained because of Frank Rose excavation at top
of Rowe St. The recent storm has caused the dirt to slide off blocking
the street and driveways. Mr. Knowlton and Mrs. Leach will work with
the property owners along Rowe Street to form ani.Improvement District.
City Administrator Irving Johnson reported on the water pressure on
Crestview Heights. The water pressure had been checked at the two fire
hydrants located on Crestview today and they were at 571bs. and 59 lbs.
This amount exceeds the amount approved by the state. The original
plans • for Crestview limited the water connections to a maximum of 70
hook-ups. There are presently 45 homes and 3 more under construction
on Crestview Heights. Ronald Shepherd plans are to construct an additional
10 homes so there would be no problem giving him water as far as the
city is concerned.
Steve Miller, Attorney representing Ronald Shepherd, quoted several clauses
in the original Diehl-Serfling agreement with the City from October, 1963.
Mr. Johnson agreed that a reservoir on Crestview would be necessary in
the future but City is in no position at the present time to construct one.
There would be no objections from the City for Mr. Shepherd to construct
his proposed tract if he had the proper approval from the D. E. Q. ,
the State Fire Marshall and the State Engineer.
Councilman Patterson moved the Council approve Ronald Shepherd's addition
subject to proof of the State's approval. Oscar Anderson seconded the
motion. Motion passed. Ayes 6 Nayes 0
Councilman Ronald Hanson again broached the subject of a raise in salary
for the Police Department. The Mayor said to wait and look at next
years budget after all the bills are in.
Al Nimmler, Councilman, asked Mrs. Robert Townsend, Secretary for the
Urban Renewal Project, the amount outstanding on the Urban Renewal loan;2^
She reported that there was a loan of §62,245.00 still owing, the land
value is $22,250,00 and cash in bank is $28,535. A grant from the Depart
ment of Housing and Urban Development of $14,878.00 will be applied to
reduce the loan.
Mr. Johnson announced that he and Mr. Tymchuck were to attend a C. O. G.
meeting in Roseburg on January 14, 1976.
Mrs. Jacqueline Viestenz inquired about methods used to appoint Library
Board Members. She reminded the council that Mrs. Robert Cline would be
resigning soon. Attorney William Jayne Said he wouldhave to work up an
ordinance pertaining to Library Board Appointments and would call a work
session soon.
January 12, 1976 155
Councilman Patterson announced there will be a bus committee meeting on
January 13, 1976. He invited anyone that is interested is welcome to
attend and for the news media representatives to get word out to the
public.
Mayor Tymchuck reminded everyone that there will be a special public
meeting on January 19, 1976. Officials from the Federal State Deptof
Transportation will be present as will a bus for the public's inspec
tion. This will not be the bus the city is to purchase but will be

The meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk, He expressed the
purpose of the meeting is to discuss the proposed Public Transportation
System which will ,serve the citizens of Reedsport, Gardiner and V7inches^
ter Bay.
Mr. James Zelinka of the Oregon Department of Transportation e^q^lained
the program which will be funded by a $34,000.00 grant from the Federal
Department of Transportation. The money will be awarded to the City of
Reedsport for the purpose of a mass transit system. Additional resources
for the project will be added by the City of Reedsport. This is an experi
mental program which is to be extended for 2 years. The city is to report
regularly to the Funding Agency.
Mr. Zelinka works with the C. C. D. C. (Coos, Curry and Douglas County)
or the Three County Development Agency. The funding mechanism for the
transportation project began in 1974. There developed a need for rural
communities of under 5,000 population to provide their citizens with
transportation. The Senior Citizens' Club of Reedsport and the
Vv'inchester Bay Grange members e^ressed great interest in this problem.
had
Mr. Zelinka presented a tentative route for the bus. A special map
was displayed with the route outlined. He suggested a 3 day a v/eek
schedule, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily, the bus completing a loop
around the city hourly and twice during the day going to Vvinchester Bay
and Gardiner. The city loop would go through all main residential areas
and shopping centers. He pointed out that the bus could pick up handi
capped persons on request by alternating the route when the bus was in
their residential area. The bus would be able to tr^port 18-25 people
at once. It would travel approximately 65-70 miles per day. The total
mileage of the city route would be 6 miles. Including Winchester Bay
it would be 9.9 miles and to Gardiner would be 7.2 miles.
January 19, 1976
Mrs. Leslie Mains asked what the fare v;ould be. Mr. Zelinka said
that the amount suggested by Senior Citizens and \vinchester Bay
Grange was $.35.
Mayor Tyrachuk requested that anyone desiring to state their feelings on
the proposed bus system to speak up.
Mr. Harry Dillon, representing the Port of Umpqua Commission, read
a prepared statement supporting the Public Transportation system.
Mr. Pete Mulder, representing the Lower Umpqua Chamber of Commerce,
endorsed the mass transit system. He stated it would "-e of a great
benefit to the Senior Citizens, especially since a downtown food market
has recently closed and it would encourage additional shopping locally.
He will provide a written statement later.
Mrs. Dawn Peseau as an interested citizen commended the Port Commission ^
for their support. She said the community should also think of the
handicapped and younger people who whould benefit from the bus system.
The effective use of the bus would encourage other small towns in
this endeavor.
Mrs. Myrtle Sykes, Editor of the local newspaper, re-inforced what Mrs.
Peseau stated- She had witnessed young mothers walking to shopping areas
with small children in tow. Since there are no sidewalks in many areas
of the town it is difficult to push carts and strollers. : She felt the
bus would not necessarily be limited to senior citizens and handicapped
persons.
Mayor Tymchuk stressed the importance of people writing letters showing
interest in the transit system. They can be mailed to the City of Reedsport
or the Oregon State Department of Transportation. The letters must
be received during the next 7 days to be effective.
Roger Paull, President of the Lower Umpqua Jay-Cees, commended the City
and expressed the support of his organization for the bus system.
Mr. Kenneth Thompson, Administrator of Lower Umpqua Hospital, read a
prepared statement e5<pressing the hospital's support for the project.
He felt the community will benefit greatly from the bus. It will provide
assistance emotionally as well as physically to persons in the Nursing
Home wing.
Mrs. Jackie Viestenz, representative of the American Association of
University Women, read a prepared statement ejq>ressing the views of her
organization. The women felt there, was a definite need for the bus in
the Lower Umpqua area. They suggested the bus operate 7 days a week
instead of the 3 as was suggested. The schedule should make the bus
available for shift changes at the mills so workers could avail them
selves of the service.
Mayor Tymchuk asked Council Member H. J. Patterson to report on the
Bus Committee's activities.
Mr. Patterson reported that he had selected the following to serve ^
with him on a committee to organize the bus system in such a way
that it would benefit the entire Lower Umpqua Area: Bob Morris,
Pete Jones, Oliver Perkins and Everett^bott of Gardiner; Jake Bor^e#
Oscar Anderson, Jr., Edna Snider,and Rose Alderson of Reedsport;
Al Shirtcliff and Ben Van Tassel of Winchester Bay. The committee
met on January 13, 1976 and were in agreement with the plan outlined
by the State Transportation Department.
Mr. Jake Borge felt that due to lack of opposition at this meeting the
people were receptive to the bus system. He felt the bus was long over
due and the Senior Citizens and handicapped would benefit. He also asked
Mr. zelinka if the schedule would have to be held to 3 days a week?
People might use the bus for work transportation.
Mr. Zelinka said a study would be made. The mills'shift changes
would then be considered.
Bill Jayne stated that since Al Herra's Grocery Store in the downtown
area of Reedsport had closed for business several months ago, residents
had to travel 3/4 - 1 mile for groceries. This was a real hardship
on the elderly people that didn't have an automobile or access to one.
At least 20 people are currently residents of the Douglas Cou^nty Low
cost Housing for the elderly in this particular area of the Cxty.
January 19, 1976 159
Mrs. Mary Newport, Senior Citizen, reported that she was living in the
afore mentioned Housing for the elderly. She had a car but would soon have
to depend on other means for transportation due to escpenses. At the
present time she has been talcing her neighbors to the store and on errands.
Councilman Ben Henderson expressed the need for the bus also for the
low income families residing East of Highway 101.
Mayor Tymchuk told of an e^erience he had not long ago of taXing an
elderly lady to the Doctor as she had no other way to get there. He
said his wife and son had on several occaisions taken people for
medical care when called upon.
Mrs. Tymchuk as an interested citizen expressed her belief that many young
people would avail themselves of the bus service in the summer. The
Lower Umpqua Recreation Association sponsors a summer workshop for area
children and the bus service would allow more children to participate.
Mr. Leslie Mains is presently unemployed and suggested the bus could
be used to travel to the mills more frequently to apply for work.
Mr. Earl Sykes, Publisher of the Courier, said the Planning Committee
should take into consideration tying the Mmiicipal bus schedule in with
the Greyhound bus' schedule.
Mrs. V7ilhelmina Gay, Senior Citizen, said she would like to see the bus
run on Sunday so people would have a way to go to the church of their
choice.
Councilman Patterson interjected that experience and community needs
would dictate anything that will justify any worthwhile reason. First
of all we need the letters from everyone that is interested so the pro
ject can get started through proper channels.
Mr. William O'Conner, interested Citizen, asked about maintainance
on the bus.
Mr. Johnson, City Administrator, informed him the maintainance would be
done by the city mechanic. A school bus could probably be used temporar
ily in case of an emergency.
Al Nimmler, Councilman, thought the bus would save money for people to
travel through out the city. He felt that young people would.'use the bus
as much as the elderly. In all he stated that the bus would be helpful
to the community.
Councilman Patterson was very enthusiastic for the program. He said the
bus should be able to run with a minimum of subsidy from the city.
Connie Gibbons, Council Member, stated she could foresee problems but
the bus was -so necessary.
Ronald Hanson, Councilman, said time and experience will tell if this
will be viable. The City will have to give it a try.
Oscar Anderson, Jr., Councilman, said he felt the bus was needed. It
was long overdue and was glad to see people turn out for this meeting.
Mr. Johnson, City Administrator, felt that Reedsport was very fortunate
to have been selected for the Department of Transportation grant. It
was a very worthv/hile project and people, especially the elderly needed
a way to get around town.
City Attorney William Jayne stated he was all for it. He thought the
community should get behind this project and really work for it. The
City needs it, wants it and should have it.
Mayor Tymchuk announced that Howard Hinman, General Manager of International
Paper Co., has pledged $250.00 towards^the bus. Mayor Tymchuk, himself,
pledges $100.00. He said it was a much needed program and the quicker
it beginsv'operating the better.
Mrs. Marlene Tymchuk suggested that perhaps the bus could be used for
evening cultural type programs, sports contests and recreational programs,
that are usually center^round the High School.
Mr. Earl Birdsall, Senior Citizen, suggested that due to the drunk driving
citations issued lately, perhaps the bus might pick up people at the
160 January 19, 1976
local taverns. There is no taxi service and tavern owners are complain-;
ingthat their clientele has fallen off lately as people are afraid to
drink and drive.
Mr. Jerome Kenagy, owner I<DUN Radio Station, thought it was remaarkable
that there was no opposition at this meeting. Not one negative comment
had'been made.
Mr. Dennis Moore of the Department of Transportation introduced Mr.
Richard Michaels, Robert Burco and Lee LaFontaine. These men are all
from the Oregon State Dept. of Transportation and will be working with
the City on this project. Mr. LaFontaine will be in charge and work
directly with the City staff.
Mr. Moore pointed out that there had been over 300 applications nation
wide for the grant that had been awarded to the City of Reedsport.
Only 45 grants were given .and only 4 were issued to the State of Oregon.
The Rural Transportation system is an experiment and if it is success- '
ful in Reedsport over the next 2 years it will be initiated
into other areas. The Federal Aid will stop in 2 years and the city will
not be conunitted to carry on with the project. Mr. Moore also stated
there was skepticism in larger cityies about the rural bus. However he
wished us well and ejqpressed committment from everyone in his department.
Mr. Bill Gibbons, interested citizen, asked about possible do\^^l time.
Mr. Krueger, repres .entative of Don Rasmussen Co., said his company would
work with the City and would keep down time to the minimum.
Mrs. Leslie Main, intereste.!' citizen, asked when bus service would start.
Mr. Moore said due to red tape probably about 2 to 3 months. There had
to be a final approval by the Federal Highway Administration.
Mayor Tymchuk expressed that he hoped to have the bus operating by Easter.
Mr. Nichols, Federal Highway Administration, Area Engineer, said that
he wouldn't promise.
Mayor Tymchuk announced that a bus had been brought from the Don Ras
mussen Co. to Reedsport. The design is similar to the type the City is
considering to purchase for the bus service. The public is free to
inspect the bus. It is a Mercedes-Benz, 20 passenger and uses diesel
fuel. He added that it doesn't contain the wheel chair lift that is
to be part of the equipment for the City's own bus.
Meeting adjourned.

Engineer Roy Erichsen presented his report on formation of an assessment district
for installation of curbs and gutters on Bowman Road. A map and perimeter description
of the area was presented for study. Estimated total cost of the project was
$24,690.00 Estimated cost to the property owners was $5.22 per front foot of
property. Mr, Erichsen stated that he had obtained a list of property owners
from a title company and recommended the front footage method of assessment.
An assessment district will have to be formed after a public hearing has been
held. City Attorney William Jayne was instructed to go ahead with the legal work
for forming an improvement district for the installation of curbs and gutters
on Bowman Road.
Roy Erichsen also presented some of the problems of resurfacing and draining
Bowman Road. Because of the many problems involved he felt that a new street
was the best solution to the problem. Cost of a new street lowered down as it
should be was estimated at $52,387.00.
The advantages of a high level reservoir vs. the pressure tank as planned for
the Bowman Road area were discussed. Decision was made to go ahead and call for
bids calling for a pressure tank. If the bids come in low enough to allow for
the building of the high level reservoir instead, that will be done.
Attorney Steven Miller called attention to the need for a reservoir on Crestview
Heights, stating that he felt it would be better to do it right in the first
plai-ii- and install a reservoir.
Wes Hillier reported on work of the Planning Commission, Councilman Patterson
asked for a report on the status of the development on the old hospital site as
the City has a two year option on the traffic pattern. Mr. Patterson stated

Chairman of the Planning Commission stated that a plat has not been presented
to the Planning Commission but he will get more information as soon as possible.

Council Member Connie Gibbons asked if it would be possible to have this event
at Winchester Bay again. Mrs, Sykes stated that the Winchester Bay area is
not suitable for children and many parents had requested that it be held at the
high school grounds. The fireworks, however, may be held at Winchester Bay.
Cheri Taylor of the Youth Committee asked what has happened to the plans for
the bicycle route. Councilman Patterson stated that the Chairman has submitted
the plans to the State but has received no answer.
A group of citizens requested that another street light be put in on Elm Street
between Fourth and Fifth Streets as the area is very dark. City Administrator
I. G, Johnson stated that it has been City policy to only put in lights at
intersections. Councilman Henderson stated that since so many elderly people
live in the area he felt another light might be advisable and that possibly
Douglas County might be willing to put in this light for the benefit of the
people living in their housing there. Mayor Tymchuk requested that the Police ^
Committee and Police Chief Powell investigate the situation and make a recommend
ation.
City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that the light by the bowling alley
has been taken care of.
Water Superintendent Bert Bartow reported that a fire hydrant has been installed
at 19th and Winchester which will drop the fire insurance rates in that area.
City crews have also installed a surface drains at Third and Winchester,
H. J. Patterson, Chairman of the Police Committee, reported that the Police
Department is handling between 370 and 390 special service calls to citizens
per month. Police Chief Powell reported that Sergeant Madigan has received his
Intermediate Police Certificate by the Board of Police Standards and Training.
Councilman Hanson reminded the Council of the need to meet and discuss a supple
mentary budget for police salaries. A special council meeting was set for Monday,
February 19, 1976.
Police Chief Orville Powell stated that he had attended a Rape Advocate Seminar
in Portland and that such a program is now being set up in Douglas County. Mrs.
Mast of the Reedsport Police Department is acting as coordinator for this area.
Women volunteers are needed to assist in counseling for this program.
Councilman Hanson requested clarification of the City's responsibility in cases
in which city crews are called to clean sewers where the problem is in the
private line of the property owner. He recommended that in such cases the bill
be sent to the property owners. After discussion it was decided that the city
should be allowed to charge a reasonable amount for such work. Councilman Nimmler
requested that City Attorney TJilliam Jayne research and give an opinion as to
whose responsibility it is if the obstruction is in a part of the private line
that is within the city street. Mr. Jayne stated that he will report back later.
Jackie Viestenz requested information about the length of time that a member of
the library board serves. City Attorney William Jayne stated that the City of
Reedsport cannot have an official library board. All authority is in the county
board and the city's only requirement is to provide a building. If we have a
board it can only be concerned with administration of the building. Mr. Jayne
stated that the city has no legal library board and has no legal authority for
an advisory board, ^
City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that he has received a request from
the Tropicana Motel for "No Parking from 9:00 P. M, to 9:00 A. M." on the
north side of 16th Street. This matter was turned over to Councilman Hanson
to check out.
Motion was made by Nimmler, seconded by Patterson authorizing City Administrator
I. G. Johnson to ^edo the application for the second year Community Development
project to include a sufficient amount of money to complete the first year program
on the Bowman Road water and storm drain project. Motion passed. Ayes 6 Nays0
Mark Bedard of the Youth Committee asked what had been done about the Frank
Rose excavation above Rowe Street. Councilman Patterson stated that this is a
matter for an improvement district. Mark Bedard also asked if it would be
possible to get another crosswalk across Highway 101 from the High School to
the bowling alley as there is not sufficient time between classes to get across
to bowling classes. City Attorney William Jayne stated that this would have
to be taken up with the State Highway Department and in his opinion there is not
the slightest chance of getting one.
February 9, 1976
Mrs, Richard Luke requested clarification of the term "Bowman Road area".
She stated that it did not make sense in her opinion to improve only Bowman
Road and do nothing about the drainage above Bowman Road. Mayor T^mchuk stated
that Bowman Road had to be done first and that improvements on Rowe Street
in the way of drainage will be done when an improvement district is formed and
the street is brought up to standard and improved so that it can be acceptedas
a city street. Engineering had been done in the past on Rowe Street but
the property owners had refused to form an improvement district and the matter
had been dropped. It is possible that this same engineering plan can be updated
if the people wish to form an improvement district now. City Attorney William
Jayne stated that if the property owners elect to pave and curb, the City of
Reedsport will put in drainage at city expense.
Attorney Steven Miller acting on behalf of Mr. Gunnerson and Mr. Ken Thompson
requested that the City Attorney draw up an ordinance for "going out of business
sales" and to license such sales with provisions for fines and inventory submitted,
Also that the person going out of business be required to put up a bond. Mayor
Tymchuk stated that this matter had been researched before and that Mr. Thompson
and Mr. Herra had dropped the matter. City Attorney William Jayne stated that
he will research his files and report later.
Councilman Patterson stated that he has no further information on the bus for
the area. He will go ahead and have a committee meeting in a week or two and
try to have everything in order for the time when the bus is available.

SPECIAL MEETING OF THE COMMON COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF REEDSPORT ON FEBRUARY 15,
1976 AT 8:00 P.M. AT THE CITY HALL
Present: Mayor Thomas S, Tymchuk
Council Members Ronald 0. Hanson, President, H* J. Patterson,
Oscar Anderson, Jr., Albert Nimmler, Ben Henderson and Connie
Gibbons
City Administrator Irving G, Johnson
The Meeting was called to order by Mayor Thomas Tymchuk.
Mayor Tymchuk announced that the purpose of this session is to look over
the sallies of employees of the Police Department. The rest of, the
City's payroll would be given due consideration but at this, time^ th®re is
a problem with the Police Department, especially.
Police Commissioner H. G. Patterson suggested a payroll policy be developed
to correct inequities with the Police Dept. He stressed that good employ
ees are the City*s most important assets* Due to the considerable expense
involved in the Police Training Program, the city needs to insure their
investment. He had researched the cost of training one new patrolman
and reported it costs the City around $4,000.00.
City Administrator Johnson stated that nearly every man on the City
Crew is also well qualified and trained for their respective job.
He presented comparative payrolls from other Oregon cities and a com
plete detail of the Reedsport salary schedule. It was noted that the local
salaries were only $80.00 per month less than the State average.
Mr. Johnson pointed out that a police officer was paid according to his
experience. The job categories were paid accordingly.
He went on to say that there is no legal way to raise salaries when
they exceed the City's budgeted schedules. The Budget figure is very
important when the extra salary expense isn't figured in. There are
restrictions and budget laws that must be followed.
Mr. Patterson said "I don't mean to discriminate against the other
City employees in any way. I feel that due to the degree of personal
discipline, being in control of any situation that arises, the trying
circumstances, personal appearance and conduct; that the Police salaries
are low." He also described the screening processes job applicants
must endure to be hired as a Policemen and the continual studying and
work it took to reach certification after. The turn-over of employes
at the Police Department is a real problem, in addition to costing
the City money.
Mayor T5rmchuk asked Chief Powell what his feelings were on the matter.
The Chief stated that he would be happy to make recommendations but
felt he was in no position to enter into salary negotiation.
The Mayor asked Mr. Patterson and Mrs. Gibbons to meet with Mr. Johnson
and revise the Police salary schedule. The Budget Committee will be
meeting soon and he advised the other Council Members to look at the
overall City wage schedule seriously so as to make changes. He felt
that they could justify an increase to the public.
Councilman Henderson had been contacted by the School regarding payment
to the Recreation Department. Mr. Johnson said he would take care of the
matter.
Councilman Patterson had been contacted by a member of the Bicycle Com
mittee. He asked Mr. Johnson what further action had been taken regarding
the proposed bike path. Mr. Johnson said he had heard from the State
Engineer's office and had made a counter offer but so far had no reply.
Councilman Hanson had a complaint by residents near the vacated Pioneer
School building. There has been an invaision of rats in that vicinity.
The Council agreed that it was a School District problem.
Councilman Nimmler said that there was a drainage problem behind the
Umpqua Cafe. Mr. Teitzel, City employe, announced the storm sewer had been
cleaned and the "skater was gone.
George Grassl, City employee, suggested that two employees from every
City Dept. look over the City's Personnel policy together. He felt that
there should be some changes. Mr. Johnson warned that there are some '
changes that may not be legal.
February 15, 1976
Mayor Tymchuk said that the matter could be brought up at the
next Council Meeting.
Meeting Adjourned.

NEW BUSINESS
Discussion was held regarding an application by the Obie Sign Col
for a change of design on the roadside sign located on the westside
of 101 Highway, 100' north of Juniper Street. Councilman

A letter was presented from the Douglas County Housing Authority
regarding the light to be installed on Elm Street. (The light
has been requested by residents living between 4th St. and 5th
St. on Elm at the previous Council Meeting.) The letter stated
that Douglas County would pay installation charges of the street
light if the city would pay for the electricity. The City
Administrator said this is the agreement the City already has
with Central Lincoln P.U.D. It isn't the responsibility of the
City to install street lights between street intersections.
Mr. Irving Johnson brought to the Council's attention the large
unpaid balance due the City for water service to Winchester Bay
Seafood Corporation. The Seafoods Con^any had advised the City
a year ago that'they were in sercbous financial trouble but would
keep the bill current until such time that they could pay it in
full. Water service has not been interiqipted even though pay
ment has never been made as promised. To date the water bill
amounts to $4,290.76 plus $529.68 for 1976 charges through Feb.
The Company closed for business in 1975 but the buildings are
being used by an individual to process crab. Another Fish
processing conpany, hopefully, will assume management soon.
H. G. Patterson moved that the City of Reedsport insist that the
Winchester Bay Seafoods Corporation keep the water bill current,
starting with the February billing. The previous bill to be
paid as soon as possible. If not complied with, the water
will be shut off. Al Nimmler seconded the motion. Motion car

the purchase of City Hall office furniture, Friday March 5, 1976
at 4:00 p.m. at the City Hall of Reedsport, Oregon.
The results of the bid opening were as follows:
1. Watson Furniture Systems, Seattle, Washington
The bid by this firm was incomplete. Only portions of the
items listed were bid. The firm submitted alternate
equipment bids that could not be interpreted. For this
reason the bid couldn;t be considered.
2. Coos Bay Statione2^y Company, Coos Bay, Oregon
Total Bid on Furniture $3,929.34
Data print equipment 850.50
$4,779.84

Total Bid on furnitue and data
p rint equipment $4,671.00 (Corrected bid)

sion of items to be supplied to room no. 12. They were notified
and the error was corrected to reflect the true cost.)
Furniture can be supplied within 90 days after placing the order.

March 8, 1976
City Engineer's Report-Continued
Due to the inflow and infiltration of surface water in the City's
sewer By«tem H. G. E. plans to da a study of the sewer lines.
A physical examination of the system will be carried out using the
latest techniques available. It will then be recommended to the
City Coundil whether it will be feasable to repair the present
sewer system or install new lines. The cost of the study will
be financed by. Community Development Funds (25% of estimate) and
remainder by the City of Reedsport. It is the feeling of the City
Engineer that this study will show that the present Pollution
Control Facility is adequate but is having to process unnecessary
storm water due to faulty dewer pipes. To e^and or rebmild the
present Sewer Plant* today# would cost nearly twice the original
construction cost.

Agency grant will finance 75% of the cost of the feasibility study

REPORT OF CITY ENGINEER
City engineer, Roy Erichsen, reported that plans and specifications
for sewer and water improvements for the Bowman Road project have
been completed. Bids have been advertised and bid opening for the
project will be at 4:00 p. M. on May 3, 1976 at the City Hall.
Plans for the street work for the Bowman Road improvement project
will be completed soon and will be advertised for bids separately.
Mr. Erichsen reported that his firm has made an analysis of the
trunk sewer line capacity and has determined that this line has
sufficient capacity to handle Forest Hills plus the Fern Acres
development now being planned. He stated that some 400 more people
besides Fern Acres could be connected to the system without over
loading the trunk line. City Attorney William Jayne stated that
he could forsee no problems. The county will install the sewer
system for the development and the City of Reedsport is being
requested to assiime all responsibility for maintenance.
The following letter was written to the Douglas County Road Department:
Douglas County Road Department
County Court House
Roseburg, Oregon 97470
Re: Plat of Fernacres Sewerage Facilities
Project #1571-A-73
Dear Mr. Grubb:
The City of Reedsport has had my finn make an analysis of the
downstream sew^r capacity in the Forest Hills area. The trunk sewer
in this development will be receiving the sewage pumped from the
Fernacres development.
The existing trunk sewer has sufficient capacity to handle the
design flows from the development in addition to the average daily
flows from Forest Hills. The City of Reedsport assumes all re
sponsibility for any overloading that may occur in the Forest Hills
Trunk Sewer or any appurtenances thereto.
Very truly yours,
H. G. E. Inc.

the Fernacres development as stated in the letter to Mr. Grubb.
Motion passed. Ayes 6 Nays 0
Plans for a new city warehouse were presented by city engineer
Roy Erichsen. Discussion followed on alternate ways of placing
the building on the lot and drainage. After discussion it was
agreed that the plans as submitted should be followed. Cost of
construction was estimated at $55,000.
Councilman Hj^derson asked where money was coming from to construct
the warehouse. City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that this
amount has already been budgeted in the Revenue Sharing budget.
Motion was made by Anderson, seconded by Patterson that Roy Erichsen
be instructed to call for bids on the new city warehouse. Motion
passed. Ayes 6 Nays 0
Mr. Erichsen stated that the call for bids on the warehouse would
be published in the Courier and Daily Journal of Commerce on
April 15 and 22, 1976 and that bids will be opened on May 10, 1976
at 4:00 P. M. at the City Hall.
Mike Wermer of H. G. E. Inc. presented copies of tiie infiltration
and inflow analysis of the Reedsport sewer system which has just
been completed. The analysis was made to determine whether or not
excessive infiltration to the system exists. Studies determined
that the inflow is excessive in the Forest Hills and down town
areas with a reasonable inflow in the Wades Flat area. The three
by-passes used to alleviate excessive storm water flow during the
rainy season are not acceptable to the Environmental Protection
Agency standards. The next phase is the evaluation survey to come
up with cost estimates for working out a solution to the problem.
Total cost of the evaluation survey is estimated at $98,000, 75
per cent of which will be federally funded. The city's 25% of the
cost will be paid for under the second year Community Development
program.
Motion was made by Hanson, seconded by Anderson that the City
authorize H. G. E. Inc. to proceed with the evaluation survey of
the sewer linesJ Motion passed. Ayes . 6 Nays 0

on activities. Albert Nimmler has been appointed to represent the
City Council on the committee planning for the bicentennial ball.

April 12, 1976
PARK COMMITTEE REPORT
Ben Henderson, Chairman, reported on a meeting of the Park Committee.
Hank Harrington requested clarification of the status of the area
adjacent to the Dunes Headquarters. It was his understanding that
this property belonged to the city and might be available for use
as a ball park. Mayor Tymchuk stated that when U. S. Plywood gave
this property to the city it was with the understanding that it was
for Dunes Heqdquarters and that they ^ould have as much of the area
as they required. They are at present trying to make a decision
as to whether or not they need two or three more acres for storage
of their vehicles. After discussion, Mayor Tymchuk stated that
he will contact Ralph Anderson of the Forest Service to try to find
out what additional land they need.
Pete Mulder explained plans for the access to the bicentennial park
and requested that some changes be made. City Administrator I. G.
Johnson stated that the county engineers are doing the engineering
and that they would have to decide the best method as they have to
meet certain design criteria.
Pete Mulder requested that the City allocate $1000 to purchase
materials for the Lions Club to build a pavilion for the bicentennial
park. Myrtle Sykes stated that she felt the Lions Club should not
receive this assistance any more than any other organization. After,
discussion it was decided that there are too many restrictions on
the use of Revenue Sharing money to use this amount from the $15000
budgeted for parks under Revenue Sharing. Chairman Henderson stated
that if his committee is ever to get off the ground some effort
should be made to allow money for them to get moving.
Motion was made by Henderson, seconded by Patterson that $1000
be allocated from the special park fund for the purchase of materials
for use by the Lions Club for building of the pavilion in the bi
centennial park. Motion passed. Ayes 4 Nays 2 (Hanson and
Gibbons)
PLANNING COMMISSION REPORT
Millie Larson reported on actions of the Plcinning Commission.
Chaiman Hedgepeth recjuested that the City Council start considering
making application with the Land Conservation aind Development
Commission for grant money in order that the Planning Commission
can follow the guidelines set up by that commission. A report on
the Citizen Involvement Plan was postponed until information has
been sent out to council members for their study.
POLICE COMMITTEE
Chairman Patterson requested that Chief of Police Powell report
on his ^problems with the teletype service in the area. Chief Powell
stated that he has budgeted for a newer model teletype. This teletype
will cost around $300 per month to operate instead of the $117 cost
of the present teletype. Inasmuch as much of the work load is done
for the state and county police departments, he feels that they
should contribute some toward this cost. All efforts to get help
from the county have been ignored. What direction should be proceed?
Chairman Patterson stated that the City should encourage the good
working relationship with the other departments that we have had,
but believes that the Chief should continue to try to get financial
help from them. Mayor Tymchuk suggested that Chief Powell work up
some cost schedules and continue to try to get cooperatcbn on these
expenses from the other agencies using them.
SEWER AND STREET COMMITTEE
Councilman Hanson requested clarification of the procedure to be
followed when someone requests a sewer hook-up. City Administrator
I. G. Johnson stated that cases which require a sewer extension are
charged $250. In cases where there is an existing sewer line the
City has not been making a charge.
Motion was made by Hanson that in the future all hook-ups to the
sewer should be charged $250.
Motion withdrawn. No action taken.
April 12, 1976

Meeting was called to order by Mayor Tymchuk.
City Attorney William Jayne presented a prxDblem which he felt the
Council must face and take action on. Municipal Judge Forrester
Taylor has just been arrested on his second "Driving While Under
the Influence of Intoxicating Liquor" charge within a two month ^
period. Mr. Jayne felt that the Council now has two alternatives: i
1. Ask Mr. Taylor to step down until he gets his problem
solved.
2. Hire another man for the job of Municipal Judge.
Mr. Jayne did not ask any action at this meeting but felt that all
members of the Council should be aware of the problem, have discussed
it and be thinking about the best solution*
Mr. Jayne had contacted Judge Story of the Justice Court. He stated
that it was impossible for him to take over the work load of the
Municipal Court as he already has too much to do. There is no other
attorney in Reedsport who would be available. Council requested
that Mr. Jayne contact some attorneys in the Coos Bay - North Bend
area to see if anyone there would be interested in comina to Reedsport
for possibly one day a week to carry on the work of the Municipal
Court. Mr. Jayne stated that he would do this.
Mayor Tymchuk requested that any action be postponed until the
Council has had a few days to think over the alternatives and until
Mr. Jayne has had time to contact a few people. Another executive
session will be held on Monday, April 19, 1976 unless one is called
sooner.

of April 12, 1976, the executive session of April 19, 1976 and the
special meeting of April 29, 1976 were approved.
YOUTH COMMITTEE
Cheri Taylor asked what the status of the proposed bike path program
is at present. City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that the City
has submitted an alternate plan to the State Highway Department but
as yet has received no answer. A representative from that department
will be in Reedsport soon and at that time it may be possible to get
a decision.
Cheri Taylor wanted to know who is responsible for care of the ball
parks during the summer. Mayor Tymchuk ejqjlained that the schools
are responsible for any school property, but city parks are main
tained by city personnel.
SCOTT TERRACE
Mayor Tymchuk presented a petition signed by property owners on Scott
Street, Arthur Drive and Bowman Road requesting a change in the planned
traffic pattern for the new proposed Planned Unit Development known as
Scott Terrace. Request was that provision be made for a street through
the development which would lead into 22nd Street euid alleviate excessive
traffic on Bowman Road, Scott Street and Arthur Drive. Mayor Tymchuk
stated that there should be a dedicated street through the property,
but that the two year limit as proposed by the developers and approved
by the Planning Commission was too short a time. The adjoining property
which would have to be crossed to reach» 22nd Street is privately owned
and it might take some time to negotiate access across that property.
After much discussion and studying of the proposed development it was
suggested that the developers give the City a permanent street dedica
tion across the property but that the developers be allowed to use
the property until such time as a street can be built through to
22nd Street. Mr. Grice stated that they would be agreeable to such an
arrangement with the understanding that they be given 120 days notice
by the City, but that he would rather not dedicate the property as a
street but rather simply dedicate the property to the City with no
street designation. City Administrator I. G. Johnson stated that he
would have to get an opinion from the City Attorney as to the legality
of such an arrangement.
Wes Hillier of the Planning Commission stated that any changes would
require another public hearing by the City as the Planning Commission
has already held their public hearing. Attorney Stephen Miller stated
that he believed that the present council meeting is a public hearing.
Mr. Miller requested that the Council act on the request for zone change
tonight as time is^ an im^rtant item to the developers. Mayor Tymchuk
requested that the Council be allowed time to consult with City Attorney
William Jayne who is presently in Washington D. C. City Administrator
I. G. Johnson stated that the only way to allow the zone change is by
passing a city ordinance and this will have to wait until Mr. Jayne
is back. All three readings of the ordinance can be accomplished at
the council meeting on May 17.
