From Region 6 for THIS Saturdays public meeting in Raymond.

Hi Everybody,

It may have slipped folks memories, but we have a public workshop scheduled for Saturday, January 17th at the Raymond Elks Lodge, 326 Third St., Raymond. The meeting is scheduled for 2 to 5 pm.

While we arenít as far along on policy development as we had hoped, we do have a draft policy out for public comment. Our objective for Saturday is to help folks understand the draft policy and analyses so they can provide constructive comments. Note that we are taking comments until January 29th, so this wonít be your only opportunity. Comments can also be provided here:

A draft agenda is:
Background material for the options, e.g. schedules, models.
Additional details on the AHA modeling.
Review the draft policy.
Public comment.

I hope to see you all there.
