Commissioners' Conference Room

APPROVED 9/11/02


Commissioner Bill Dwyer presided with Commissioners Judith Pothier, Anna Morrison and Peter Sorenson present.  Bobby Green, Sr. and Cindy Weeldreyer were present via telephone.  June Gallagher was excused.  Acting County Administrator Dave Garnick, County Counsel Teresa Wilson and Recording Secretary Melissa Zimmer were also present.








Sorenson said the appointment of the resident commissioners gives the Board an opportunity to get more aggressive about providing affordable housing in the community. He added it reaffirms the mission of the agency and helps alleviate suffering in the community.  He hoped the newly constructed Housing Authority Community Services Agency Board would take the opportunity that Congress gave by including two resident commissioners to do the public’s business.




a.  ORDER 02-7-17-1H/In the Matter of Approving the Submission of the Five-Year and Annual Agency Plan for the Fiscal Year Beginning October 1, 2002.


Dorothy Cummings, HACSA, asked the Board to approve the agency’s five-year annual plan.  She noted it was the third year of the five-year plan and each year they update the goals and make changes that are required by the programs.  She explained the purpose of the plan is to provide the residents in the community with an outline of the programs and services HACSA provides.  She noted the goal was to involve the residents, giving them an opportunity to be part of the planning process.  She said they began in February and take parts of the plan to the Tenant’s Advisory Group and meet monthly to go over the components.  She stated they presented the plan formally to the TAG in May.  She noted this year’s plan includes updates and changes to the 2002 capital fund program and they updated the five-year capital fund submission.  She said there were changes to the public housing statement policies and to Section 8 administration policies. She added the changes were put into the update section.


Cummings noted there was an amendment to the plan this year. She stated this year the actual award is about $25,000 less than last year and they had updated the changes.
