Oregon council last week voted 5-2 to rescind an ordinance to buy property on Pickle Road that would have been used as a passive park.

Council on March 23 had narrowly passed an ordinance by a vote of 4-3 to purchase the property from George and Carrie Tschann, 3521 Pickle Road, for $195,000. Since then, several opponents of the purchase showed up at subsequent council meetings to express their disapproval.

A variety of classified positions will also be eliminated, such as bus drivers and library aides.
