The 3pm meeting time is new and they didn't have a quorum at 3pm. Vice Chair Carl Cannon started the meeting with discussion items not needing a vote. Another commissioner arrived about 3:20 creating a quorum. (The Board has one opening since a commissioner resigned at the last meeting.) Carl Cannon, Anne Fox, Alma Brown, and Tekia Childs were in attendance. The Executive Director was not at the meeting.
One item of concern was the painting contractor giving notice that they would not be able to paint approximately 40 units by a specific deadline in August. But, the contracted company was the only company submitting a bid. A decision on whether to put the painting out for bid again will be made by Tuesday. The Commissioners asked sincere questions to support staff's efforts.
An anticipated report on resident security and safety will be presented at the October meeting.
After the meeting was adjourned, Observer Cheryl Budzinski asked the Board to post the full board packet on their website with the meeting agenda. They don't have the full packet available at the meeting either. The commissioners seemed to agree and asked the board's clerk to see if that is possible. (She said they used to post the entire packet. ) Only the Observer and Steve Tartar, Peoria Journal Star were in the audience.
