Results of the annual meeting: our members and board met on April 18, 2019 for dinner and the annual meeting at the delightful new Terra Veg vegan restaurant on E. Main St. Our guest speaker was Klamath Falls mayor Carol Westfall, who spoke to us about city issues and what’s it’s like to be a woman in power in this traditionally male-dominated city political structure.
new study approved
During the meeting, members and board voted to begin a new study project next year. This will deal with the issue of merging the Klamath Falls city boundary with the “Urban Growth” boundary. The concept is to merge these two boundaries to form a single entity.
The League understands that various people in Klamath Falls have discussed this issue for many years but it has always faced partisan opposition from various groups due to a number of issues including taxation, provision of infrastructure, and public safety. Now the league would like to focus on identifying major stakeholders who should ultimately meet to resolve this issue. The goal would be to speak to all the relevant parties to try to form a basis for a committee to work together. This committee could bring issues to the ballot or otherwise work to merge these boundaries.
The board will consider new board members and officers at the next regular meeting. Courtney Neubauer was elected to serve on the board. Leslie Lowe will continue as Treasurer, Karen Kunz will continue as Secretary. The position of President will become open and will be determined at the meeting of May 16.
