NEIGHBORHOODS & HEALTHY COMMUNITIES COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Bert Malone, Health Department, stated that he would give the report on the ordinance because Mr. Griffin, Health Department, who worked on the grant was unable to attend the meeting. He explained that this was a grant award to the City. The grant would fund the City's lead hazard control & Healthy Homes Program. They expect to treat 172 homes and improve the housing for 275 residents. He said that this may seem like small numbers but the impact is huge. If you were to think of it in terms of cost saving in health care, special education and other cost that increase when children are effected by lead poisoning.
