*Commissioner Infantini's absence was noted at this time.
Ian Golden, Housing and Human Services Director, stated this Item is regarding the Affordable Housing Council; it is a body that is in the State Statutes to oversee the housing dollars received from the State, specifically SHIP, but they are used to oversee all of the housing; the membership is specific to categories that are in Statute; and it is an 11-member board. He went on to say there are three vacancies at the moment; there were five people who applied for those vacancies; one person, Cynthia Matthews, met the requirements for a citizen who represents the Central Services personnel; one applicant, Josh Thompson, met the requirement for a citizen who is actively engaged as a for-profit provider for affordable housing; they are asking the Board to approve those two appointments, and then there are three applicants for the final slot on the board which is a citizen residing in the jurisdiction of the local governing body; and there is an actual ballot for the Board to vote on who that member is, and it will be tallied.
The Board acknowledged the appointments of Brenda Burton, Cynthia Matthews, and Josh Thompson to the Affordable Housing Council, said terms expiring December 31, 2017.
