Please help us spread the word to let folks in your neighborhoods know that on Thursday, April 10th, from 7-9pm, the Buckman Community Association will host an open forum on the Ballot Measure that would remove from City Council management the Water and Sewer (BES) services.
The forum will be held in our regular meeting space, the Multnomah County Board Room, 501 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
Many Portlanders (ourselves included!) are relatively clueless about this measure and its potential impacts on water/sewer rates, but also the environment and related programs.
At the forum you will:
Find out about the measure from the initiative proponents..its purpose, what it creates and what we can expect. How it will aid ratepayers.
Hear from the opponents why this is a bad idea and how it could negatively affect the city, its residents and the environment. How it will hurt ratepayers.
Get your questions answered.
The BCA remains neutral and is hosting the forum to create an opportunity for Portlanders to become informed about this serious proposal before the ballots arrive in April.
All are welcome!! We especially invite those from other inner eastside Portland neighborhood to come. Refreshments will be served at the break.
If you have any “pre-questions” feel free to email me personally or the BCA Board as a whole:firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you there!!
