seconded the motion which passed unanimously.
Budge Line Items – Oneata explained that Mrs. Torresen had a question on a line item
not matching, the $8,000 for Love Inc., and $70,000 for the summer program. She was
wondering if the $8,000 was for the YEP program and it was not. She further explained
the budget. The only change in budget from 2014 was money for the Engineering
budget for the paving but no programs had changed. The $78,000 is for Public Service.
Oneata stated that bids had gone out for the construction at 1477 Nolan and bid results
were expected by the end of June and hopefully the contract would go to the
Commission the first meeting in July.
She also stated that notices went out to the CHDO’s advising that applications would be
accepted between June 1 and March 31, 2016 to apply for 2015 grant money. She
explained they have nine months to complete what they are working on now before they
can apply for 2015 money.
Oneata stated that Laura would be retiring in October and the intern that was in the
office last summer will be returning and starting next week to help with various projects
and assist with various projects.
Commissioner Johnson asked if the budget had been approved by the Commission;
