Annual meeting of PHA Board of Commissioners was held February 4, 2019 at 3125 Merriman St., Peoria, IL. Meeting started on time at 4:30 PM and was chaired by Vice Chair, Carl Cannon. The Board addressed the required annual signing of commissioner documents: Conflict of Interest Statement and Confidentiality agreement. Forms were signed. Meeting was adjourned at 4:33 pm. Prior to adjourning the session, a motion was made and seconded to table meeting agenda until March meeting due to lack of quorum. Absent were Alma Brown and Ann Fox.

Board packet and agenda was not on PHA website, but copies of agenda were available at the meeting. There were no public comments or media coverage.

Rent fees for March and April will be timely. PHA initiated quarterly newsletter for families and landlords of section 8 and public housing, as well as monthly newsletter for staff. Ms. Newman discussed outcome of visit to Chicago PHA and examples of mixed use development, such as library, veterans’ space. Plan to discuss with City of Peoria officials.
It was also reported that PHA website was being updated. Attempted to log in to website February 27, and was unsuccessful. On calling PHA office, was informed new website is https://peoriahousing.tenmast.com. This website requires a registration key to complete log in. Return call to PHA unsuccessful in finding out how to obtain registration key. I was able to verify that there was change in March Board of Commissioners Meeting; this will be held on March 11 at 4:30 pm at 3125 Merriman. Will inquire about prior meeting minutes and prior meeting minutes during time for community comments at March meeting.
