Jaime Schroeder, Senior Management Analyst for the Office of the City Manager, has sent out an e-mail to all committees regarding the City Council meeting agenda as well as several other issues. We would like to thank Jaime for her assistance in getting this done as quickly as possible. Will everyone please read the e-mail and all attachments she sent out. For anyone who did not recieve this e-mail and would like to know the details please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We would just post the whole thing but it is far too long…..
As a side note we would like to encourage anyone and everyone who would like to attend the City Council Meeting to do so. There is plenty of seating and if we manage to fill up all the seats (please! please! please!), there is additional seating and tv’s displaying live feed in the overflow area…. It will begin at noon on Wed. Oct. 26th. OccupyReno has been officially added to the City Council Agenda minutes and will be heard some time after 12:45 p.m, the purpose of this meeting will be to accomplish 3 main goals; first, we will be requesting an additional occupation site at the old bus station downtown (as was agreed upon by consensus at Thursdays GA), second, we will be making our case to have all fees for occupation waived by The City Council (by explaining our intentions for giving back to The City of Reno and using sustainable energy), and lastly to ensure we have on file a public record of our attempt at working with The City of Reno to occupy by permit. There is a public comment section at the end of the meeting for anyone and everyone to speak but you will be limited to 3 minutes and you will not be able to engage in open dialogue with the City Council (reason for needing to get on the agenda).
We would like to stress that the more people we have at this meeting the more likely we are to be successful. It is important that we show not only strength in numbers, but also strength in diversity. We can show The City Council of Reno that the people of this movement cannot be classified by age, sex, ethnicity, political stance or occupation. We come from all walks of life and we stand united for a brighter future in The Great State of Nevada!
Hope to see EVERYONE there!
