Russian River Low Flows Meeting in Guerneville

Hi Brenda:

Below is the agenda and list of speakers.  For publicity, we are running
a public notice in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, West County Gazette,
and Sonoma West.  We have also included the meeting date in our most
recent press release and have it posted on our Web site. I believe Vesta
has also sent the notice out to her e-mail list.  I was also planning on
posting some notices in local businesses around the River this week.
What else can you think of?

For handouts, we will have a copy of the final order, instream flow map
of the Russian River, Russian River water supply system…

Hi Brad:

I need to get more info for our upcoming RRWPC Board meeting about your
community meeting on May 28th.

Can you tell me who else will be on the panel, or at least who you
invited and what the agenda will be?   I’d appreciate it if you could send me a
copy of the agenda.  I’d also like to know about any hand outs you are
planning.

Finally, can you tell me about what publicity is planned?

Thanks.

Brenda
