  2. Rick Gruen, County Parks, Lieutenant Jeff Davis, Sheriff’s Office and Stephen Madkour, County Counsel presented the staff report. A five minute video produced by the Sheriff’s Office was played showing the issues on the Clackamas River from Barton Park to Carver Park. Mr. Madkour explained that this current proposal would amend County parks rules set forth in Chapter 6.06, of the County Code to specifically provide authority for the Sheriff’s office and other individuals designated by the Parks Director to perform visual inspections of personal property items such as coolers. The amendments would establish a properly authorized administrative program designated and systematically administered to provide clear authority to conduct administrative inspection of prohibited items. Administrative searches are conducted for purposes other than law enforcement, such as courthouse and airport security, fire safety, mobile homes and elevators. As such, there are well recognized exceptions to the warrant requirement rule. He also explained the reason for declaring the emergency is to have the ordinance effective upon its adoption.
