    4-29-04 at 10:15 a.m. in Gardner Auditorium

Neighborhood Relations Report: Contact Kathy Mohlfeld at 375-7321 for more information.

  • Three NU Directions speakers were snowed out on March 3rd. It has been rescheduled to Wednesday, April 28th. Presentations will be given about their Responsible Hospitality Council (RHC).
  • Goal: Offer local retailers proven practices that will reduce alcohol-related problems while promoting a profitable business.
  • Bob Jergensen (P.O. Pears owner) is trying to make contact with local bar owners to personally invite them to the program.
  • FORMAT CHANGE: It will be a panel presentation followed by a question and answer session. This will demonstrate group strength and also give each perspective of benefits and lessons.

Policy & Enforcement Report: Contact Jason Karsky at 375-7139 or Jason Mrsny at 375-7216 for more information.

  • Safe Ride Program-will need to regroup, since funding fell through with the grant application. Mrsny indicated that they might try to approach the Main Street group after the RHC workshop regarding the Safe Ride Program.
  • Chief Webster (Wayne Police Department) talked about the city ordinance proposed regarding noise disturbances and decibel levels.
  • Chief Webster will also contact the State Patrol about their car rollover demonstration program. We may be able to incorporate this into the Fatal Vision Goggles demonstration during the fall football game, as wearing seatbelts are one of the best defenses against drunk drivers.
