1. PUBLIC COMMENTS

None.

2. REGULAR BUSINESS

a. ORDER 98-9-23-1H/In the Matter of Adopting the 1998/99 Budget and Making Appropriations.

Larry Abel, Housing Authority, presented the 1998/99 Agency Budget which is approximately $21,000,000. He added over $11,000.000 of the budget is in Section 8 subsidies that go to private landlords. He said it was a conservative budget and does not contain HUD appropriations. He said there are no big changes in funding from the previous year.

Cornacchia questioned the expenditures exceeding the revenues.

Abel said it has been a typical situation the last couple of years. He said last year they predicted a deficit but there is a cost of living increase that HUD usually gives and one is expected for this year. He added it will move the budget into a surplus position.

MOTION: to approve ORDER 98-9-23-1H.

Green MOVED, Dumdi SECONDED.

Sorenson asked for a brief history of the Budget Committee.

Abel reported that the Housing Authority is no longer subject to Oregon State Budget Law. He said they were in the past when they administered the Cottage Grove Urban Renewal District. He said at that time they had the same Budget Committee that Lane County had. He said since Cottage Grove took back the urban renewal district, there is no requirement to follow the Urban Budget Law. He said the Board is presented a budget each year and their Budget Committee is their internal management.

VOTE: 5-0.
