Scope & Content After the Luvera totem pole at Washington Park fell in the storm of December 18, 1990, the remains were cut in sections and taken a storage site at the city dump. The city dump was opened to city residents as a place to leave damaged trees, etc., from the storm. Parts of the totem pole were taken away from the unsecured site by unknown individuals. On May 31, 1991, Steve Colby (Director of Parks and Recreation) sent a memorandum of conversation to Anita Luvera Mayer re the discussion held on May 28, 1991, with Colby, Mayer, and Phyllis Luvera Ennes.
Two proposals were made:
1) that the city have Tracy Powell repair the totem pole and have the pole returned to the Luvera family for placement where they desired;
2) that the Mayor would form an ad hoc committee to formulate policies and procedures concerning donations, gifts, etc. for the City, with the recommendations then being reviewed by the City Council.
Copies were sent to Paul Luvera, Jr., and Mary Babarovich Luvera.
