REPORT(S) OF THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
(December, 2003 and January, 2004)
We currently have one vacancy which is undergoing rehab. This unit should be completed and leased by the end of the month.
We should be in a position to install another tenant shower in March. The tenant will have to make arrangements to leave the apartment for approximately 10 days. This conversion will be done at the tenant’s convenience.
Apartments 7 – 12 need to be re-roofed. There is some areas that the under sheeting plywood is starting to bow. This is the same building that had the pipes freeze this year.
All the roofs in level one need replacing. They have two layers of shingles on them now, and that was done approximately 15 years ago to cover dry rot.
I am looking into a new type of roofing that never needs to be replaced. When I get all the information I will bring it to the commission for their approval.
When we do this roof, we will also replace the gutter over apartments 15 – 16 which had been leaking and cannot be repaired.
EPA and DEP have given UTC the go ahead to clean the site. The property must be turned over by September, 2004. I will be meeting with UTC people in the near future.
Checking Account Signatory
Our resident commissioner, Gloria Kneeland is experiencing ill health and is seriously contemplating moving to Baltimore in the near future. Due to these circumstances I feel that it would be advisable to add our new commissioner Pauline Legassie as a signatory on our company checking account.
A motion was made by Commissioner Percoski, seconded by Chairman Boutin to have Commissioner Pauline Legassie added as a signatory on the company checking account.
REPORT(S) OF COMMITTEE(S)
There were no reports of committees
A) Community Hall/Office Expansion
Larry Wagner has been in contact with us regarding the grant for the expansion of the Community Hall/Office area. The plans for the expansion are still on track but there is additional information needed and as there are two (2) other projects in East Windsor which have received grant monies and have not been started, there is a hold-up on the release of the grant monies until these projects are underway.
B) Millbrook Complex
This was covered in the Report of the Executive Director.
C) Policy and Procedures Update
Due to time constraints, any additional Policies and Procedures are not available at this time. As soon as time and manpower allows, any additional Policies and Procedures will be brought to the attention of the Commissioners.
