 There may be a general discussion of Neighborhood Development and Housing Committee issues. Stacia Johnson, Manager of Housing, reported back on an issue that related to funds not expended that might be available for projects in the fifth district. According to Ms. Johnson there were no funds that had not been expended. Tom Coyle and Claude Page are looking at finding possible funding sources. Mr. Coyle was to relay information about the findings to Councilwoman Nace. Deb Hermann asked about how the Black Economic Union ended up receiving CDBG funds after the committee recommended not funding this organization. Stacia Johnson said that was an extension on 2004 contracts. She stated that Councilman Nash would explain the particulars about the funds. Councilwoman Hermann reminded Ms. Johnson that as manager for the Housing Program she needed to be prepared to discuss issues before the committee and not refer those issues to others to explain.
