86 for the PIRG

In the restaurant industry, to “86” something is to strike something from the menu, almost always because the house has run out it (or the supplies to make it). I am not referring to this figure of speech in my headline.

Instead I am referring to approximate size, in thousands of dollars, of OSPIRG’s contract under the ACFC Budget sent by the ASUO Executive to the University President.

In a memo summarizing their funding choices, the Exec said that “the executive recommends that the ACFC require all contracts to be transparent, and provide detailed information on how their respective services will be provided.” The memo went on to say that, “Vaguely worded services provided by contracts shall not be accepted.”

The OSPIRG contract will be for $86,280. The rest of the budget looks just like the first ACFC budget past last term, except that the renegotiation of the Lane Transit District contract is reflected. That renegotiation reduced the amount of the LTD contract by $86,280. The Total ACFC budget is $4,007,629, an increase of seven percent.

    In LTD related news they are gonna cut seven trees near 13th and Kincaid this summer. I will bring a step ladder if eco champ Denson wants to climb into one of those. Meanwhile, the city of Eugene wants to get in on the Arbor national Whack off event by whacking 12 historic trees just around the corner. It is all about sustainability you biatches !

    Don’t you love how all the numbers come together so nicely? And by love, I mean hate?

    HAHA!! I don’t know Evan, but he has seen Rocky 4 one too many times (if that’s possible)…DRAGO!!

    I’m so glad we have a legal eagle like Evan around.

    Just so you know, the threat of a lawsuit will only work as some sort of appeal attempt with the administration. If it actually reaches any sort of judge, you will lose.

    I wish we would have 86ed OSPRIG from ACFC…

    BTW, when are we going to start forming the class action lawsuit because of the lack of an “opt out?”
