REPORTS OF THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
We have four apartments vacant, two on the second level, one on the third level and one on the first level. The apartment on the third level is nearing completion and should be leased within the next couple of weeks. On level two one of the apartments has just been vacated and the other one is vacant but the family is looking for a continuing care facility. The apartment on the first level is vacant but that will not be ready for a while as it needs a complete overhaul. We are still using Apt. 4 as temporary offices.
REPORTS OF COMMITTEES
There were no Reports of Committees
A) Community Hall/Office Expansion
We are a little behind schedule due to the installation of the gas tanks. The tanks have been installed and connected to the pipes; they should be fired up tomorrow and after the appropriate testing the carpets should be able to be laid. With any luck we will be able to move back to the Community Hall within the next two to three weeks.
A) New Tractor
The cost of a new tractor versus purchasing a used one was discussed among the commissioners present. A new tractor with the necessary hydraulic system will cost approximately $12,000 for a new one and a used one approximately $8,000. The Executive Director will do further research on this subject and report back to the Commission at a later date.
B) Quarterly Report - quarter ending 3/31/06
Although the quarterly report has been completed, there was a problem with printing it out so this will be postponed until the next meeting in May.
C) Proposed budget - 2006/2007 Fiscal Year
The proposed budget was reviewed by all commissioners present and all questions answered.
There are very few changes from last year’s budget although the proposed income has decreased. The one line item that did change was insurance as the Department of Administrative Services is doing a phenomenal job at finding insurance for the Housing Authorities at the best price possible.
A motion was made by Commissioner LaMay, seconded by Commissioner Mezzetti to accept the proposed budget and to forward it to CHFA.
POLICY AND PROCEDURES
There were no new Policies and/or Procedures.
A motion was made by Commissioner Mezzetti, seconded by Commissioner Legassie to go into Executive Session for the purpose of Employee Performance, to include the Executive Director when needed.
A motion was made by Commissioner Mezzetti, seconded by Commissioner Legassie to come out of Executive Session at 8:25 p.m.
A motion was made by Commissioner Percoski, seconded by Commissioner LaMay to adjourn the regular meeting of the East Windsor Housing Authority at 8:26 p.m.
