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.
