CALL TO ACTION: PACK CITY COUNCIL MEETING

MAY 20, 6 P.M., CORVALLIS FIREHOUSE!!!

 

The city manager-appointed Task Force has not allowed consideration of alternatives to logging of the Corvallis Forest, even though the city's stated primary management goal is to protect the city's drinking water. Both the City Council and the Task Force seem intent on keeping the status quo of logging.

 

Be there! Show up in force at this meeting to DEMAND CHANGE!

Public Works appoints new task force member:

Without publicly announcing the vacancy left by the former chair's resignation, Public Works appointed a new task force member who works for the forest products industry and has never attended a task force meeting. One current task force member has written a letter objecting to the process.

Six enviro groups object to city's appointment process:

Oregon Chapter of the Sierra Club, Audubon Society, Great Old Broads, Friends of OSU Old-growth, Benton Forest Coalition & Friends of the Corvallis Watershed signed a letter to Mayor Maughan, objecting to City Council allowing Public Works to take over the appointment process to this policy-making  CFSPU Task Force. Jim Fairchild has also written a letter to city council. No response was received.
