INTERVIEWS FOR THE HOUSING ADVISORY COMMITTEE APPLICANTS

The Agency Secretary provided the staff report.  Housing Advisory Committee (HAC) appointments are filled by vote of the Redevelopment Agency.  The HAC openings were advertised on the City’s website, the City’s official posting sites, the San Ramon Express, and the San Ramon Patch. Applications were received from Jenny Hong, Terri Jones, Nima Niakan, Mary Dunne Rose, Kathy Stewart, and Dick Vesperman by the application deadline. 

The HAC consists of five members who serve two year terms.  Three vacancies exist as of July 2011.  Two terms expire July 2011 and one term (vacant) expires July 2012.  The Agency Secretary requested that the Agency members consider making three two-tear appointments which would fill all existing vacancies and maintain the balance of terms.  Mbr. Hudson’s motion to appoint three members to the HAC for two year terms ending July 2013 was seconded by Vice Chair Livingstone and passed 4-0.  Mbr. Rowley was absent.  Upon completion of the interviews, the Agency will vote via ballot.
