The May 2, 2022 PHA Board of Commissioners met for regular monthly meeting in person and virtually.
Several individuals spoke during community comments at beginning of meeting. One resident of Sterling Towers complained about bed bug infestation that has led to sleeping in car. CEO Newman planned to meet with this person after meeting. Landlord complained about communications and lack respect of PHA employees. He needed to have electrician do some repairs and inspection scheduled before work completed.
Minutes of the regular meeting of March 7, 2022 were approved, as well as, closed session meeting of March 7, 2022, and special meeting of March 31, 2022. This Observer is monitoring PHA website for posting of meeting minutes within 10 days of Board approval per IL Open Meetings Act (OMA). As of May 18, 2022, the minutes of February 7 and March 7, 2022 meetings are not available on website. It is also noted that CEO report and reports listed under Consent Agenda are not readily available to the public to review. This lack of transparency raises concerns that PHA does not have an effective plan in place to follow Open Meeting Act. e. Note: LWVGP requested FOIA in March from PHA to review meeting reports and minutes not posted at that time. PHA staff and legal representative forwarded records that were requested in reasonable timeframe.
Reports approved by consent agenda.
Resolution approved to amend employment contract of new Chief Executive Officer, who started April 25, 2022.
Under new business, Chair Cannon announced “lunch and learn” meeting scheduled for Board members on May 17, 2022.
The next scheduled meeting of the PHA Board of Commissioners is June 6, 2022 at 4:30 P.M. Connie Romanus, Observer
