2005 Council Announcements

July 14, 2005

(announcements not discussed).



1.    Sorenson Unity Center: marketing plan placed at your seat at Council meeting tonight, July 14, 2005.  Staff will review and provide memo.  If you have questions please contact Gary Mumford or your liaison.

2.    Hoffine Printing info: Council staff recently received notice from the Administration that it is time to consider whether to renew Hoffine Printing’s contract.  Hoffine Printing provides the service of a 4-page newspaper print newsletter.   Hoffine was the only vendor who submitted a proposal for newspaper print.   According to Hoffine, newspaper print is recyclable as opposed to the glossy type newsletter paper.  However, Council staff has encountered some previous problems working with Hoffine which raises concerns for Council staff.

Council staff has attached a cost comparison and effectiveness on different newsletter options for the Council’s consideration.   Is it the Council’s interest to renew the contract with Hoffine Printing and continue with the 4-page newspaper print or would the Council prefer that Council staff continue exploring other newsletter options/vendors?

3.    Pioneer day weekend: 

A.    Sister City events for the 24th and 25th of July:


The greeting at the City & County Building on the 24th will be at 3:00 p.m.  There will be 7 dignitaries from Keelung (three will have their wives as well - so a total of 10) and the Deputy Director General and Consul from San Francisco.  After they meet with the Council members and Sam from the Mayor's office, they will go over to the Police Department and meet with Chief Dinse and then go on to Heritage State Park for the BBQ and Play.  Everyone will need to be at "This is the Place Park" by 5:15.  We have a total of 34 guests from Keelung that will be at the BBQ and Play. 

On the 25th, our guests will be involved with the parade and after the parade they would like to invite the council members to a sit down lunch at 1:00.  They are probably going to be eating at Charlie Chows. - They leave for Las Vegas that afternoon so they will need to be at the airport by 4:50 p.m.
