1. PUBLIC COMMENTS

None.

2. REGULAR BUSINESS

a. EVALUATION/Lane County Housing Authority Director.

Van Vactor suggested the commissioners make a brief report and give Todis an opportunity to comment after that.

Commissioner Green said he had graded Todis as high as 8 or 9 in most areas and commented on Todis' leadership style wherein he remained in the background and allowed his staff to benefit. He said Todis was responsible for the fact that HACSA develops community developments, rather than housing projects. On budgeting skills, he noted that Todis manages HUD funds and road funds. He commented that Todis takes time to talk to the tenants on a face-to-face basis and that he represents Lane County well. He said he was doing a great job and requested that he continue.

Commissioner Dumdi said her comments paralleled those of Commissioner Green. She noted that HACSA is well respected and that is a reflection on Todis' leadership skills. She said the program gets high marks from HUD and is one of the top organizations in the nation. She added that HACSA projects have given Lane County a positive image and developed an excellent reputation. She said Todis does an excellent job directing HACSA and is a real asset to Lane County and HUD. She rated his performance at 8.

Commissioner Weeldreyer said she had worked with Todis for five years and that she had deepened her respect for him and his staff in juggling federal requirements and county requirements, and being sensitive to the board of HACSA. She said it was obvious his staff has respect for him and he balances the needs of serving tenants, taxpayers and staff. She rated him at 8.5

Commissioner Sorenson said he thought Todis was a wonderful leader, and was respected by the Board, employees and the housing community. He said the County was fortunate to have him.

Commissioner Cornacchia noted that Todis' subordinates and peers mirrored the comments of the Board in that their ratings were all 8 and 9. He concurred with the comments from the other commissioners.
