BERKELEY HOUSING AUTHORITY MEETING 

TUESDAY, JULY 25, 2000 

Preliminary Matters

Roll Call:  7:12 p.m.  All present. 

Comments From The Public:  Four speakers

Consent Calendar

Action:  Moved, seconded, carried (Olds/Shirek) to approve the Consent Calendar in one motion except as indicated. 

1.      Minutes for Approval
From: Executive Director
Recommendation:
  Approve the minutes for Authority meeting June 20, 2000.
Contact: Sherry M. Kelly, City Clerk, 644-6480
Action:  Approved minutes.

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
Action:  Removed from the Consent Calendar by Authority Member Payne.  Moved, seconded, carried (Worthington/Payne) to approve the recommendation amended by Authority Member Worthington to delete recommendation 4.

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 Councilís agenda and deflects attention from significant BHA matters. 
Contact: Helen Wheeler, Authority Member, (510)549-2970
Action:  Removed from the Consent Calendar by Authority Member Payne.  Moved, seconded, carried (Worthington/Payne) to direct staff to schedule monthly meetings of the Housing Authority and to set aside sufficient time at these meetings to conduct business which may require pushing back the starting time of Council meetings which generally have been scheduled for 7:05 p.m. on nights that the Authority meets at 7:00 p.m.

Authority Member Worthington requested a report from the Executive Director with a listing of all labor union issues raised by the public speakers.
