Honoring and expressing gratitude to the members of the Housing Policy and Oversight Committee for their work in creating housing policy recommendations to guide the City Councils oversight of the rebuilding of the Citys housing programs.

 

WHEREAS, in March 2006, a report entitled Performance Audit: Council Oversight of Housing Programs was presented to the City Council by the City Auditor. This report called for the Council to firmly and clearly set housing policy and to install a system for closely overseeing and measuring the performance of the Citys housing program; and

 

WHEREAS, the audit suggested that the City Councils Neighborhood Development and Housing Committee develop a housing policy that adequately guides the Citys housing efforts, provides direction to City staff and includes reporting requirements that enable councilmembers to effectively monitor progress in improving housing conditions; and

 

WHEREAS, the Housing Policy and Oversight Committee Report was completed and submitted in December 2006, after meeting from May through November. Committee members gave their time and expertise in this important effort, and are appreciated for their public service; and

 

WHEREAS, members of the Committee include the Chairman, Father Norman Rotert, Vice-Chairman John Laney, and John Anderson, Mike Browder, Elmer Binfield, Jim Bowers, Reverend Rayfield Burns, Jean Paul Chaurtrand, Erica Dobreff, Joe Egan, Mary Lou Jaramillo, Margaret May, Jim Rice, Kelvin Simmons, Kite Singleton, and Tim Underwood. Ex Officio members are Councilwoman Deb Hermann and Councilman Troy Nash; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby extend great appreciation for the work of the Housing Policy and Oversight Committee, in particular for the leadership of Father Rotert and John Laney; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to each member of the Housing Policy and Oversight Committee with suitable recognition and gratitude.
