IBusiness I AB 99-64 Citizens Committee Bill Robertson reported on the committee member selection and handed out the list of the proposed members. Discussion followed on the proposed members which included stake holders (representatives from the Blue Jay, Pine Terrace, PLWSD and Valley View). There was some question as to the need to have a representative from Valley View since they were not located the surrounding project area. Mr. Robertson noted that it was an advisory committee and the Council would still make the final decision. DEQ had suggested after the meetings, a press release be compiled and released. The scheduled July 16th meeting would be an organizational meeting to determine the Committee structure and meeting schedule. Mr. Robertson reported that Mr. Trout, who would be the facilitator, had reduced his rate to $125 per hour. It was estimated by Mr. Trout the time involved would be approximately 40 hours. Discussion followed pertaining to the total hours to authorize. It was agreed that 60 hours would be more realistic. Mr. Robertson submitted to Council the list establishing the Committee representatives. He suggested the facilitator expenditure of minimum $5,000 come from the Sewer or Contingency Fund. It was pointed out that the Committee may want presentations by outside firms and this would entail extra expenses. Mr. Robertson stated BOR felt further site evaluation of Seubert would not be covered under BOR grant funds. He reported the co-operative agreement must be signed by September 30, 1999 and the Committee review must be completed or the money would most likely be gone. Ms. Arp and Mr. Colton wondered what congressional influence could be used to preserve the funds and felt BOR's stand may hold little credit.
