Contact: Sherry M. Kelly, City Clerk, 644-6480

2.            Housing Authority Board Membership
From:  Authority Member Dean
Recommendation: 
1) Request the City Manager analyze whether the Berkeley Housing Authority should continue to be composed of members of the City Council plus two Housing Authority tenants or be restructured as a separate, possible resident-elected board; 2) part of the evaluation to include how other cities in the area structure their Housing Authorities, costs of such a change, and how such change impacts the possibilities of additional federal funding; 3) the City Manager to obtain comments from the two current tenant members of the Authority, League of Women Voters (local branch), interim resident advisory group, current clients (property owners and residents) of the BHA, current residents of public housing, and appropriate boards and commissions; and 4) request the Manager return to the Council with the report no later than approximately six months.
Contact:  Shirley Dean, Chair, 644-6484

3            Berkeley Housing Authority Bylaws
From:  Authority Member Wheeler

Recommendation:  Approve changes in "Section 1. Regular Meetings as follows:  Regular meetings shall be held in the City Council Chambers on the Third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. In the event the day of the regular meeting is a holiday, said meeting shall be held on the next succeeding weekday."  Bylaws Section 1. Regular Meetings changes are needed to reflect (1) current practice and (2) BHA needs.  BHA concerns merit more than an occasionally-scheduled five minutes of Authority-level attention, a practice that delays Council’s agenda and deflects attention from significant BHA matters.
