ELGL Forum: The First 90 Days

A location has been set for the discussion forum with city managers from Tigard, Hillsboro, and Wilsonville. The focus of this luncheon will be the first 90 days of their tenure.

We will be meeting on April 26, 2012 at Cafe Allegro in Tigard. Lunch will include a selection from a set menu provided by Cafe Allegro similar to those we have had in the past. The cost per lunch will be $14 including your meal, beverage, and gratuity. An RSVP request will be sent out in early April to get a head count.
