DELEGATION –

HCI COMMITTEE:

 

Val McNally, Marilyn Scott, Maureen Doetzel and other members of the HCI Alumni Reunion Committee were in attendance at the meeting.

 

Mrs. Marilyn Scott, on behalf of the HCI Committee, expressed concern regarding the cleanliness and staff availability at the Uniplex for the HCI Reunion which was held the weekend of June 27, 28 & 29, 2002. 

Mrs. Scott indicated that Reunion volunteers and guests had to assist in

the cleanup of the Uniplex Facility due to the lack of available City staff.  She indicated that if volunteers are required to perform some of the duties involved in the rental of the facility that perhaps clarity is required in the rental agreement. 

 

The Reunion Committee indicated they felt that at least three additional employees should have been provided during the weekend of the Reunion.  As a result, they are requesting that the cost of three employees’ wages be credited to their facility rental invoice with the Uniplex.

 

The Mayor thanked the delegation for attending the meeting.
