Hostelling International Austin Travel & Events Club Message Board › Help Support the Austin Hostel

Dear Hostelling International Friends and Supporters--
I am writing friends of the Austin hostel to ask for your support this week.
We have asked city council and the mayor for at least a 10 year extension in our current home. Right now our lease is set to end Jan. 1, 2013. Council Member Mike Martinez is supporting our request and is sponsoring the resolution to give us a ten year extension.
The resolution is on the agenda for the Thursday, March 1st city council meeting meeting.
We are asking our supporters to go to city hall and register on the kiosk computer in the lobby that they are in favor of resolution #50. Parking is free at city hall for up to 30 minutes.
if you would like to attend the City Hall meeting on Thursday to show your support we would love to have you!
We will all be wearing large name tags letting council members know we are the Hostel Supporters.
Because council meeting agendas are not exact with times and we have no idea what time Item #50 will be discussed, please send me your cell phone number if you want to receive a mass text with updates on when our item will be discussed. That way we can have our supporters present without asking anyone to wait around all day!
Thanks for your support and have a great week.
