> Good news, today Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee announced that she
> facilitated a donation of $350,000 from Marathon and Conoco oil companies to
> keep the 7 community centers and all swimming pools open this summer!
> However, on Labor Day, September 5th, Cherryhurst and 6 other community
> centers will officially close........ unless further action is taken.
> Currently, I believe our best option is to go before City Council tomorrow,
> Tuesday the 21st, and request that the Mayor and City Council Members adopt
> both: Councilman Stephen C. Costello's Budget Amendment #1.06 and
> Councilwoman Anne Clutterbuck's Budget Amendment #8.01. I feel that while
> Anne Clutterbuck's Amendment addresses the immediate funds required for
> keeping all 7 community centers open this coming year, Stephen Costello's
> Amendment addresses the long term needs that will keep community centers open
> for the subsequent years ahead. This combination would give HPARD and the
> communities the time to come up with long term solutions.
> Will you join us tomorrow, at City Hall? We believe there will be few
> supporters of other community centers there as well. The greater our numbers
> the more effective we can be.
> Tuesday, June 21st, 1:30pm
> (arrive early to allow time to get through security)
> City Council, 2nd floor
> City Hall, 901 Bagby
> Parking: behind City Hall Annex or under ground garage 1block north of City
> Hall (under Tranquility Park)
> Carpool: depart 1:00 sharp from Haver near Yupon
