Progress is happening! The City Council met on Sept. 14, 06 and discussed school grounds maintenance during a study session. At that meeting, the City Council discussed encouraging Parks to put the school grounds maintenance in their budget, and if need be, come back to the City Council with a request to increase their allocation of city taxes for that purpose. (I was told that the minutes from that meeting should be available today, 9/27/06, on the City’s website at http://www.ashland.or.us)
Hopefully even more progress will be made at next week’s Joint Meeting (City Council, Parks Commission, and School Board) which will be held on Thursday, October 5, 2006, 7 pm, Council Chambers, 1175 E. Main St. I would encourage you to come if you can, these joint meetings are actually pretty interesting to attend…
Our Dessert & Wine Potluck will be on Saturday, October 7th at 7 pm, 271 High Street (John & Melissa’s house), directly behind Briscoe playground. This should be really fun, please come! We would like to thank everyone for their help and pass out some gift certificates that have been donated by local businesses in support of our efforts. Please RSVP via e-mail or by phone, 488-6958. Thank you, we hope you can make it!
Our next board meeting is being rescheduled to Thursday, Oct. 12, 7 pm, Guanajuato Room, Ashland Public Library.
