Pre-school Co-op heard by Council m continued use of Scout Cabin Options to be explored by staff IOy finverdale's PreSchool Co-op d itself sharing the City Ck Scout Cabin with the soon tribe inaugurated Social Advo- cates for Youth program that received funding for the coming year. The City Council heard com- ments from Pre-sohool director Angela Hetrick as well as par- ents and supporters prior to tak- ing up the regular agenda at the June 25 meeting. Final direction to staff was to continue to work with the Co-op in finding a new location or find a way to accommodate both pro- grams as well as the Scouts use of the Cabin. The Co-op has leased the build- ing for the past 16 years and has been in existence since 1967. The Social Advocates for Youth (SAY) program was recently funded in Cloverdale to counsel and work with troubled teens at a critical point in their lives when they are just beginning to exhii it problems, either in school or in - he community. Use of the Sc, otxt Cabin is part of the agreement covering this program. While the City requested $107,000 from the County this amount was re- duced to $48,000. The Coop's license agreement expired at the end of the school year and the City notified the group that possibly the lease would not be renewed. This cre- ated a great deal of concern amongthe parents of youngsters scheduled to attend the pre- school in the Fall. The license agreement re- quires that the Pre-schooi give the City at least 30 days advance written notice of its desire to renew. This was not done. How- ever, the Council moved to waive this requirement and to accept a letter from Hetrick stating the Co-op's desire to renew the agree- ment. City Manager Bob Perrault said that possibly the two pro- grams could use the Cabin as the SAY counselors will be working with teens later in the day and the Co-op holds classes in the morning.

Heckel noted that in the past council members have expressed concern regarding the number ofblighted properties in the com- munity that show various signs of deterioration and neglect. Heckel recommended a long- term program aimed at prompt- ing property owners to either upgrade their holdings or, in the case of seriously substan- dard buildings, to abate and de- molish them The program would be tailored to deal with three categories of properties: (A), properties with structurally failing, vacant and hazardous buildings; (B) prop- erties with substandard, vacant, aesthetically unattractive hous- ing units or buildings, but which are generally found to be struc- turally sound qualifying for stor- age rather than residential or commercial uses; (C) properties Plou, rum to Imek pago A 77-yeor-okl man was Injured In head-on oBsion at Old Redwood Highway North at Highway 128 on June 25.
