Starr said.
While many of the recom-
mendations will require the
collaboration of numerous lo-
cal public and private organi-
zations, Jon Reeves, executive
director of Mid-Willamette
Valley Community Action
Agency, said it was incumbent
on everyone involved to begin
thinking about new ways to ap-
proach problems.
“All the organizations that
have chosen to be engaged in
this process – and all of the
partners that have decided not
to be part of it – darn well bet-
ter be involved in the process
we are moving forward on.
And we all better be bending
in a way that we are all doing
something differently. We’ve all
done what we’ve done and this
is where we’re at,” Reeve said.
After the meeting, Clark
said tapping into budget year-
end savings might be one way
Keizer could support the new
position, or the contribution
could become part of the 2017-
18 budget discussions.
“The costs of handling ser-
vice issues for homeless people
in Keizer are growing and I be-
lieve we need to be active par-
ticipant in solutions,” Clark said.
She also didn’t rule out the
city partnering with a local
benefactor.
the homelessness initiative, ex-
pressed some reservations with
the recommendation coming
during the last hour of the last
meeting.
“There’s so many questions
that have yet to be discussed and
talked about that make me won-
der what the downstream struc-
ture will look like,” Starr said.
While there was some echo-
ing of such concerns, Clark,
Bennett and Carlson will es-
tablish a transition team to
guide the position’s structure at
MWVCOG.
“We have generous, thought-
ful offers to fund a position at
the COG and we may not have
had a lot of time to think about
alternatives, but there are no
other alternatives on the table
right now,” said Marion Coun-
ty Judge David Leith, a member
of the initiative.
Starr ended up supporting
the recommendation with the
caveat that she wanted to see
the project manager produce
some sort of quarterly check-
in that would be distributed to
members of the initiative.
“I don’t know how many
others on the task force volun-
teered at the warming center,
but we owe it to the people ex-
periencing homelessness some
sort of check-in with the pro-
cess as it’s working at COG,”

make certain that other recom-
mendations are being followed
through on.
The co-chairs of the MWHI
task force, Clark, Salem Mayor
Chuck Bennett and Marion
County Commissioner Janet
Carlson, planned to present the
idea to the WVCOG executive
committee Feb. 16 followed by
rollout to the full MWVCOG
leadership on March 21.
Clark said a similar position
had been set up at the Lane
County Council of Govern-
ments with success, in making
the recommendation.
“A lot of what we’ve talked
about is developing mutual re-
spect and coordination. What
the COG does is bring the
people together to move from
understanding to collabora-
tion,” Clark said.
While Marion and Polk
counties have had representa-
tives attend meetings, Clark
said representatives of Yamhill
County, which is also part of
MWVCOG, is now interested
in what has been learned.
