Troy Schulte, Budget Officer of the Office of Management and Budget, stated that all project dollars had been included with this ordinance and addressed reimbursement of administrative fees since June, 2004. The Oak Pointe contract was not included. He stated that the ordinance adjusts back to June, 2004 and goes through November, 2004. It clears up books and puts all accounts in place. He also stated that he believed that the 2nd mortgage funds will be short but he will be back at a later date for a discussion on funds. Mr. Shulte also stated that a meeting was planned with HUD to go over changes requested by the agency to the City. Compliance efforts have been worked on. There had been a problem of fund CDBG and HEDFC with city funds. They hope to get those funds back. Ken Bacchus, President and CEO of HEDFC, responded to the testimony and stated that he agreed with the recommendation to hold related ordinance 041103. He stated that the current contract does not contain any real performance measures. Shirley Dobbins, St. Matthews CCO Federation, agreed with the current contract that HEDFC has with the city. She also stated that the number of houses being built should not be used as a criteria to determine a good performance measure. Councilman Troy Nash stated that he would like to work with the CCO Federation in addressing issues brought forth by Ms. Dobbins, especially those regarding the number of houses being built and where they are being built.
