a. REPORT/Review of Audit Report and Project Based Accounting.

 

Larry Abel, HACSA, thanked his staff for doing an excellent job. He indicated they had no findings of their audit report.

 

Don Williams, HACSA, reported that under the HUD system that has been in place since 1999, their agency has always been a high performer.† He said to be a high performer, they have to score 90 points or greater and every category has to be greater than 60 points.† He reported that this year their score was 93.† He noted that last year their score was 91.†† He added the highest score they ever had was 98, with 91 as the lowest.† He said this yearís physical inspection was fair and they received 24 out of 30 points.† He said it means their housing will not be physically inspected next year.† He commented that 93 was a very good score.† He added the 98 they previously scored did not include the inspection of their outdoor facilities or a resident score.

 

Moorehouse commented that in the future there would be less money for maintenance and she didnít think that it was fair the blame falls on HACSA.

 

b. DISCUSSION/Update on the Acquisition of the Norsemen Village Apartments in Junction City.

 

Jim McCoy, HACSA, reported that they have succeeded in acquiring Norsemen Village in Junction City.† He said they have been working on this since 2003.

 

Morrison asked if they would be doing any renovations, as the building is in bad shape.

 

McCoy indicated they would be spending about $20,000 to replace roofs, decking, siding and stairways.† He added they also want to expand the patios on the back.

 

Massengill asked where the funding would be coming from.

 

McCoy responded it would be from rural development.† He said this project has 100% rental assistance because it is a project for seniors and people with disabilities.† He said it allows the residents to pay only 30% of their income.† He recognized Clayton Walker who enabled them to get this building.
