July 6, 2016 Safety Meeting Notes

Kent Kalsch:  ODOT - striping crews are out working, also doing tree removal, culvert cleaning and brush outs.  They are avoiding the Old Scenic Highway right now due to the increased number of people and the heavy traffic.  The well has been acting up at Multnomah Falls, but its the irrigation one and won't be affecting the lodge. 
The culvert at the bottom of Corbett Hill is on the list, but there are several things ahead of it.  (Sounds like a couple of years right now.)
Kerr is doing the paving and are going from Troutdale to Multnomah Falls.  They will be working from 8pm to 8am and will be changing their stockpile locations. 

Ana Snyder:  Springdale Job Corp - They have filled their open position for protective services. 
Springdale has the highest placement rate in the Country for their graduates and the next graduation ceremony will be August 19. 

Dorothy Brown-Kwaiser:  Oregon State Parks -   Glenn Littrel will be working the East end of the Gorge indefinitely, Mark Shaw will be filling in.  Seasonals started on 6/14.  There was a trash can fire at Dabney on July 4th around 2 am.  There was also a branch that fell from a tree and crashed into the cab of a vehicle at Dabney, no one was in the cab so thankfully no one was hurt.
They are striping at the Vista House to help with parking and traffic flow.
Gorge Shuttle is now running smoothly.
Events coming up:
July 23:  Antique Auto tour from Troutdale to The Dalles on the Historic Highway.
August 12:  Stargazing at Rooster Rock
August 20:  Piano concert at the Vista House from 7pm to 8pm with Classical Pianist Hunter Noack and special guests—Thomas Lauderdale - China Forbes - Nicholas Crosa - Carl Halvorson

Commissioner Diane McKeel:  Multnomah County -  McMenamins is purchasing the old pig farm and the Board has resolved to use those funds in Troutdale on Animal Services.
Hanson Building is becoming a homeless shelter.  Two shelters are being closed in the Portland area and those who occupants will be moved to the Hanson building.  This is a short-term option, ranging from 6-12 months, or 1-2 years.  This building is planned to hold 260 people.

JoAnn Valencia
:  Multnomah County - They are apply for a 1.5 million dollar grant for Larch Mountain and Haines road restoration, specifically for land from the road to the National Forest boundaries.
Comprehensive plan update is going to the Board of County Commissioners on August 24. Key updates can be found on their website.

Malcolm Fruend:  There is a reunion planned on October 16 for those who used to work at th Troutdale Aluminum plant.  (ALCOA).  They are looking for any stories to share.  Please call (503) 661-2164.

Victoria Purvine:  Multnomah County Charter Review Committee is voting on putting the Appointed Sheriff on the ballot in November.  Is not in support of this position but is looking forward to getting the decision made.  Did vote to put a County Manager on the ballot, thinks this would be a good thing for the County.

Dave Flood: District #14 Fire Chief-  They responded to 45 calls in June, overall they are up 15. 
There were four trail calls in June, two traffic accidents with extractions.  The Fire District is doing more collaboration with Gresham which is helping both Districts.
The 4th of July went very well, thank you to everyone.
Informational meeting on July 23 at 7:30 at the Fire Hall for new recruits, August 1st is the cut off for the next round of training.

Commander Reiser:  MCSO- Congestion in the Gorge is still a concern, meeting this Fall with Project Oregon to see where we go from here. 
They have received a JAG grant to help with homeless outreach. 
There are currently seven recruit deputies in training to help bring up numbers.
Sheriff will be retiring on August 15th.

Deputy Graziano:  MCSO -  We have been seeing more homeless moving out to Corbett, they are working with them doing outreach.
Thanks to Citizen Patrol for all the work they did helping out on the 4th.
Please be on the watch for unusual activity in your area.  The people showed up at a home in Corbett saying they were with the IRS.  They showed legal paperwork to take possession of the property based on back taxes owed.  Thankfully the person watching the property called the Sheriff's Office and they were investigated.  They left without taking possession.
