Moved by Commissioner Abitz. 56 Seconded by Commissioner Ryan. All voted in favor. Motion carried. 57 58 4. Approval of the Minutes for a Special Meeting held on December 7, 1998. 59 60 Vice Chair Kadlecek pointed out that a correction was in order on page 2, line 62. The approximate 61 price should have read $2 a square foot and not$12. So noted. Vice Chair Kadlecek entertained a 62 motion to approve item 4. Moved by Commissioner Abitz. Seconded by Commissioner Ryan. All 63 voted in favor. Motion carried. 64 65 5. Approval of Payments for December 1998. 66 67 The Board had a few questions about some expenditures regarding the Hispano Chamber of 68 Commerce membership for Vice Chair Kadlecek, salary wages for an employee trainee, registration 69 fees, cellular services, patrol services, classified ads and the Greater Las Cruces Rental Association 70 membership. 71 72 Mr. Wingard replied that they paid a membership to the Hispano Chamber of Commerce for the 73 HACLC. Vice Chair Kadlecek is acting as a representative for the Housing Authority. As for the 74 salary wages for the employee trainee, this is part of the economic development program funded by 75 the Multifamily Drug Elimination Grant. He went on to explain that the registration fees are for two 76 housing counselors. The seminar will take in Reno, Nevada from February 8-12. One counselor will 77 receive a week's worth of training and examination, while the other will be taking a re-exam of the 78 certification. 79 80 Ms. Hansen stated that the Housing Authority is getting the best commercial rate available from GTE 81 Wireless for cellular services. Commissioner Ryan said that there were new business plans available 82 being offered by the main office in Texas. She suggested that Ms. Hansen look into these new plans 83 and see if a business rate would better serve the needs of the Housing Authority for its cellular 84 services. 85 86 Vice Chair Kadlecek asked if there were other alternatives for providing patrol security services. Mr. 87 Wingard mentioned resident patrol services. However, in New Mexico, one must make certain that 88 these resident patrols receive the minimum standards of training and equipment. He commented that 89 some public housing authorities had resident patrols with overzealous individuals that resulted in 90 litigation. Mr. Aguirre said the larger public housing authorities have their own police forces. Mr. 91 Wingard replied at present it is the most cost effective option to have a third party providing patrol 92 security services. 93 94 The cost for advertising in the classified ads of the Sun-News appeared expensive to the Board. Vice 95 Chair Kadlecek commented that it would behoove the Housing Authority to check other alternatives 96 for advertisement purposes. Mr. Holguin replied that they have used other mediums such as Dandy 97 Dime, Las Cruces Bulletin, and TCI Cable as well. 2 98 Vice Chair Kadlecek asked if the Greater Las Cruces Rental Association provides data that can be 99 used in terms of comparable rental information. Mr. Holguin replied that it does not. The Vice Chair 100 asked if anyone locally provides this type of information. Mr. Holguin replied that he is not aware of 101 this information being provided by anyone locally. 102 103 Vice Chair Kadlecek entertained a motion to approve item 5. Moved by Commissioner Ryan. 104 Seconded by Commissioner Abitz. All voted in favor. Motion carried. 105 106 6. Financial reports for the period ending December 31, 1998. 107 108 Vice Chair Kadlecek noted on page one that the Housing Authority earned $3,173 in security deposit 109 interest and wondered if the money belongs to the organization or to the tenants. Ms. Hansen replied 110 that HACLC pays interest on security deposits for only those residents participating in the Section 8 111 New Construction housing program. Mr. Wingard asked if in New Mexico housing authorities pay 112 interest over a certain amount or any amount on security deposits. Mr. Holguin explained that the 113 program is set up this way and it is part of the lease agreement. Vice Chair Kadlecek suggested that 114 HACLC reserach what the policy says, find out what other landlords do in the private sector and what 115 exactly does state law mandate. Commissioner Abitz commented that it is necessary to have a 116 consistent policy. 117 118 On page nine, Vice Chair Kadlecek noted the Conventional housing program year-to-date actual is 119 $74,192.00 in excess of revenue over expenditures when the total budget for the year estimated to be 120 $4,687.00. Ms. Hansen explained that the Housing Authority budgeted conservatively because 121 throughout the year there are different payables due and can deflate the funds quickly. He also noted 122 similar situations with the Section 8 programs. Ms. Hansen pointed out that the Section 8 housing 123 programs are different in that the amount the HACLC obtains depends on the number of units under 124 lease at the time of budget submission. At the end of the year, the Housing Authority pays back any 125 over-requisitioned funds or receives additional monies from HUD for any under-requisitioned funds. 126 127 Vice Chair Kadlecek commented since the Board adopted a new set of bylaws things have to be 128 done differently. The Board needs to be informed of major budget amendments and have a policy 129 regarding minor transactions. They went into a lengthy discussion about the budget, the preparation 130 and revisions that occur. 131 132 Vice Chair Kadlecek entertained a motion to approve item 6. Moved by Commissioner Abitz. 133 Seconded by Commissioner Ryan. All voted in favor. Motion carried. 134 135 7. Resolutions to be approved. None this month. 136 8. Written Reports to include Action Items. No action items included. 137 a. Accountant 138 139 Ms. Hansen set up a new financial statement for the Montana Senior Village program to keep track of 140 its expenditures. Vice Chair Kadlecek asked what money is being used to fund the program. Mr. 141 Wingard replied principally Section 8 administrative reserves although it can be drawn out of the 142 federal budget which closes out with the audit period of June 30. Permanent financing will repay all 143 expenditures which are approximately $33,000 with six months into the fiscal year. Ms. Hansen 144 noted that Montana is the only program showing a deficit year-to-date. 145 146 3 147 Ms. Hansen explained that she has completed a Salary Allocation Form. Each employee signed a 148 form stating that either they agree with their current allocation or corrected their allocation. Changes 149 were entered into the payroll system effective with the first payroll of 1999. The main change was to 150 allocate more salaries into the Montana program. Due to the financial position of this program, she 151 attempted not to overburden it with salary expenditures. However, in the interest of accuracy and 152 audit compliance, there will be some additional salaries allocated to this program. Salary allocations 153 can be difficult. It is possible that the "corrections" made by various employees may not be much 154 more accurate than the previous allocations. However, she believes those who changed their 155 allocations put considerable thought into their responses. This will be conducted once a year. 156 157 Ms. Hansen stated that the fiscal year 1998 audit report was approved by the State Auditor's Office. 158 She has sent the required copies to HUD, the City of Las Cruces, and NMMFA. 159 160 Vice Chair Kadlecek asked Ms. Hansen to explain the Section 8 Rental Assistance Monthly report. 161 Ms. Hansen replied that as of January 4, 389 certificates were under lease and 42 had certificates 162 issued but had not yet signed a lease. Vice Chair Kadlecek asked the difference between 163 certificates and vouchers. Mr. Holguin replied that certificates have a maximum rent plus utilities 164 limit whereas with vouchers the holder can pay the difference. The Vice Chair asked if they are 165 project based. Mr. Wingard replied that Moderate Rehabilitation program is project based. There 166 was a lengthy discussion about the fifteen year rental contracts and how they will expire next year. 167 168 b. Administrative Officer 169 170 Ms. Levey stated that Ms. Shirley Baca, Public Interest Consultants, Inc. and Mr. Edward Nevarez, 171 Kimberly Enterprises, have expressed interest in submitting proposals for the EDSS/TOP Grants. 172 Vice Chair Kadlecek asked if there is an RFP (request for proposals) for these grants. Mr. Wingard 173 said no, that these individuals verbally expressed their interest in the EDSS/TOP grants. An RFP will 174 be prepared to give everyone an opportunity to submit a proposal. 175 176 On December 15, 1998, Mr. Wingard and Ms. Levey met with Ron Gurley, Program Director, NM 177 Works, regarding their submission of an `unsolicited proposal' to obtain funding for welfare to work 178 transitioning. The proposal addresses the need for maintenance/modernization work at the HACLC 179 as well as resident training and employment opportunities. The HACLC is proposing twenty-five (25) 180 hours/week of supervised on-site training in painting (interior/exterior), apartment maintenance, and 181 landscape maintenance for 16 TANF recipients. (NM Works will give priority placement to HACLC 182 residents who are receiving TANF.) Trainees will also participate in five (5) hours/week of classroom 183 training which will include topics relating to job readiness skills, sexual harassment, construction- 184 related topics, concepts of general business, OSHA, etc. Eligible expenses include a portion of the 185 supervisor's salary, 2/3 of the participants' salaries, leasing of vehicles, training modules, etc. 186 187 Copies of the proposal were included in the board packet for the commissioners' review. The Board 188 wanted to know if the residents would be interested in this type of training. A lengthy discussion 189 followed about the advantages and disadvantages of the proposal for maintenance and 190 modernization training program. Vice Chair Kadlecek mentioned another welfare-to-work group being 191 formed. The Department of Labor and Human Services Department will make recommendations to 192 implement the state's welfare-to-work program. Twenty-three counties were instructed to create a 193 community council made up mostly of the private sector. Mrs. Deana Kessin is in charge of 194 overseeing the Dona Ana Community Council 195 4 AOIN 196 The Board delivered recommendations to the Mayor's office regarding the board vacancy. They have 197 yet received no word whether or not an appointment has been made or not. 198 199 Ms. Levey pointed out the HACLC appealed the decision of the Appeal Tribunal Hearing 200 Officer regarding a former employee. The NM Department of Labor Board of Review considered the 201 matter on December 30, 1998. The Housing Authority awaits the decision. 202 203 Ms. Levey mentioned that interviews were conducted for the position of Family Self-Sufficiency 204 Coordinator and a decision will be made in the near future. 205 206 c. Community Activities Coordinator 207 208 Mr. Vizcarra stated that GED Classes began tonight (1/19) at the Valley Drive Community Center. 209 The Dona Ana Branch Community College will provide GED instruction. The HACLC is offering 210 transportation service to the residents of the Lester/Walnut housing development and the 211 Mulberry/Locus housing development for them to attend these classes as well. 212 213 Mr. Vizcarra mentioned that security lighting, three printers, and a scanner will be installed at the 214 Valley Drive housing development through the Multi-Family Drug Elimination Grant for the 215 Neighborhood Networks Program. 216 217 Mr. Vizcarra mentioned that HUD's Neighborhood Networks will feature an article on HACLC youth 218 program in the spring newsletter. 219 220 Mr. Vizcarra pointed out that the Locus Community Center was painted and plans are in the works to 221 have the playground painted as well. Commissioner Ryan commented that two local businesses 222 obtained funds from the New Mexico Women's division. She suggested that Mr. Vizcarra contact this 223 division for possible funding for playground equipment. A brief discussion followed regarding 224 playground equipment. 225 226 Mr. Vizcarra explained that Commissioner Ryan will help the Community Activities Program set up a 227 scholarship for a student to attend college or trade school in the Fall. Funding for the scholarship will 228 come from the contract awarded by the New Mexico Department of Health and Center for Disease 229 Control. The New Mexico Lottery will pick up the funding for the scholarship for the Spring semester 230 and after that if the student maintains a 2.5 or better grade point average until graduation. 231 232 d. Deputy Director 233 234 Mr. Holguin stated that the Albuquerque HUD office has approved the second position mortgage on 235 the homes that the HACLC Board approved last month. The volume of calls for the Home Choice 236 program is up again. However, many do not qualify due to income requirements, household status or 237 credit problems. The HACLC has scheduled an Open House on Corbett Street for Saturday, January 238 30. Brochures are available to reflect the new option to purchase concerning the seocnd position 239 mortgage. Vice Chair Kadlecek suggested distributing the brochures to local banks as another 240 outreach effort to the public. 241 242 The Housing Authority has ordered sale signs and will display them outside the unoccupied houses 243 with information about the home and program. The HACLC has contracted with KVLC 101.1 Gold 244 FM radio station to advertise the homes beginning January 18, 1999. The Board listened to a 5 245 demonstration tape of how they will announce the program on the radio. Vice Chair Kadlecek asked 246 which homes are occupied. Mr. Holguin replied that there are three on Chaparro, two on Winton, one 247 on Fir and one on Corbett. 248 249 e. Modernization/Maintenance Manager 250 251 Mr. Hassell stated that the office addition will be ready for occupancy by the February board meeting. 252 He reminded the commissioners since a stair lift did not have to be added in the new addition, there 253 was a credit. The credit was spent on bathroom additions, additional phone and computer cables, 254 windows, the board room partition and wiring for the alarm system. 255 256 Mr. Hassell repeated that the contract for fascia and soffit work was awarded to Eldon King. The 257 contractor has ordered his supplies and anticipates starting the job in early February. One additional 258 housing development site will be added to the work. 259 260 Mr. Hassell stated that a computer dealer is putting together a proposal to upgrade the HACLC's 261 computer system. Tenmast came out with its windows version. Mr. Hassell said the HACLC will be 262 looking at getting a Windows NT environment. 263 264 The subject of trash bins at various housing development sites was mentioned. Mr. Hassell stated 265 that he spoke with Mr. Mendez at the City and it will be an additional cost; off site dumping; want 266 individual dumpsters for each housing unit. Had different type of truck ; matter in process of getting it 267 done. 268 269 f. Tenant Selection Coordinator 270 271 Ms. Talamantes stated that she selected 32 applicants that qualify for the additional funding to assist 272 the disabled. Twenty-one have completed the screening process and are in the Section 8 pool. 273 274 On January 19, Ms. Talamantes will be conducting a presentation regarding the functions of the 275 Housing Authority for parents of children in school, and Special Education Teachers. They will hold 276 the meeting at the Las Cruces Public Schools Administration Office in their Special Education Room. 277 She will also be conducting another presentation on February 1, at the MORE-DVR (Division of 278 Vocational Rehabilitation) offices. This will be especially for the Disabled. Ms. Talamantes spoke 279 with Timoteo Chavez, DVR Provider, about getting Southwest Counseling, Alliance, and other 280 agencies to be there for this presentation. 281 282 9. Discussion and review of the Articles of Incorporation for a Community Housing 283 Development Organization (CHDO). 284 285 HACLC Attorney, Sam Aguirre prepared a sample form of Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws for a 286 community housing development organization that was included in the board packet for the Board's 287 review and comments. 288 289 290 291 Both Mr. Wingard and Mr. Aguirre gave an explanation for the creation/formation of a CHDO. A 292 CHDO is a specially recognized form of non-profit housing corporation, the purpose of which is to 293 develop affordable hosing within its community. A CHDO is eligible for certain federal funds allocated 6 294 to cities. Currently the City of Las Cruces has several hundred thousand dollars in HOME funds that 295 have not been allocated since no qualified CHDO has applied for such funds. If the Housing Authority 296 sponsors the creation of a CHDO, the CHDO could apply for the HOME funds set aside by the City of 297 Las Cruces. 298 299 The disadvantage of a CHDO versus another form of non-profit subsidiary corporation is that the 300 HACLC cannot control the CHDO. However, the Housing Authority can have representation on the 301 CHDO and it can be used creatively to supplement or enhance the activities of the HACLC. For 302 instance, the CHDO could apply for HOME funds to acquire land or buildings or to rehabilitate existing 303 structures. The HACLC could enter into an agreement with the CHDO whereby the CHDO agrees to 304 make available such land or buildings available to the Housing Authority for its housing programs. 305 306 They went on to explain that a CHDO must be comprised of representatives of various sectors of the 307 community. At least one-third must be representatives of the low income community, the other one- 308 third may be representatives of the public sector. The balance is unrestricted but may include people 309 such as social service providers, lenders, philanthropists, or professionals. 310 311 A lengthy discussion followed the explanation for a CHDO. The Board seemed receptive to the idea, 312 yet they were concerned about using Housing Authority funds to pay for legal services and 313 incorporation expenses about the CHDO. Mr. Aguirre pointed out Escamilla & Poneck would be 314 willing to provide legal services at no charge to the Housing Authority and to be reimbursed by the 315 CHDO when it is awarded HOME funds. If the CHDO is unsuccessful or does not receive any 316 funding, the law firm will waive it legal fees. Mr. Wingard mentioned the Housing Authority's mission 317 statement that is to lead the public effort in providing safe, affordable housing and support services 318 that provide opportunities to eligible persons. 319 320 10. Status update on the HACLC's 1998-99 Goals and Objectives. 321 322 The commissioners were generally pleased with the goals and objectives that the HACLC has 323 accomplished thus far. They talked about the ongoing efforts to improve the appearances of HACLC 324 properties. They addressed the issue of receptacles being overloaded and/or surrounded by trash 325 and debris. Commissioner Ryan asked if the HACLC had intentions of filling the vacant maintenance 326 positions. The commissioner mentioned that she and Vice Chair Kadlecek toured some housing sites 327 over the holidays and noted trash around the dumpsters and the streets not properly swept. 328 Commissioner Ryan stated that initiatives for resident responsibility and involvement need to be set 329 up. She said if the residents are not willing to help keep their yards cleaned and maintained then the 330 Housing Authority would need to impose a fee to do it for them. Commissioner Ryan pointed out that 331 Joni Gutierrez of the City of Las Cruces had mentioned contacting `Keep Las Cruces Beautiful' to put 332 together a team to help with clean up efforts. The commissioner believes that the Housing Authority 333 needs to put more effort into accomplishing this goal. 334 335 Vice Chair Kadlecek agreed with Commissioner Ryan on the need for maintenance with the exception 336 on resident involvement. He suggested the HACLC contact local property mangers in the private 337 sector for ideas. He, too, believes that a better job can be done in maintaining the HACLC properties. 338 339 Mr. Wingard stated they staff the Maintenance Department appropriately for the number of units it 340 owns. That the staff and Board will achieve the same in which is the better appearance and 341 maintenance of housing properties. Under the current lease agreement, residents are responsible for 342 lawns and shrubbery. It is common knowledge that children have been seen throwing out the trash 343 and cannot reach the dumpster, so they leave it next to the receptacle. Another factor is the 7 344 unauthorized use of the public throwing their trash in dumpsters at various housing sites. Residents 345 are not able to dispose of their garbage because the receptacles are filled beyond capacity due to off- 346 site dumping. He realizes that the Housing Authority needs to do a better job of reasonable lease 347 development in out-sourcing maintenance services to enhance the appearance of the properties. Mr. 348 Wingard further stated that from an Executive Director's point of view, the maintenance staff is to 349 respond promptly to call-in work orders in a unit, and secondly, when they are not engaged with work 350 orders then they are to perform preventive maintenance especially the seasonal type of work (i.e., 351 evaporative coolers, furnaces, etc.). 352 353 Mr. Holguin mentioned that the former president of the Taylor Resident Council tried to encourage the 354 residents to help maintain the Lester/Walnut/Taylor/Stull housing neighborhood. The HACLC gave 355 the council all the supplies needed to cant' out this endeavor, however, the residents were not 356 interested. 357 358 Mr. Hassell mentioned that for approximately six months he has been into his current position as the 359 Modemization/Maintenance Manager. He was approached by a new company that out sources the 360 type of maintenance services being discussed tonight. He explained that before the HACLC 361 considers outsourcing with a vendor, the Housing Authority needs a handle on what it costs to do in- 362 house maintenance. At this time, he is reluctant to contract with anyone on a six months or one to 363 three year basis without knowing whether or not what the Authority would pay the firm is comparable 364 in cost to do the same work in-house. He realizes that it seems like nothing is happening. The 365 HACLC currently has a contractor to do the fascia and soffits which will remove a lot of the old paint 366 improving the units. This will ease up the maintenance burden of having to paint the units every year. 367 368 Mr. Hassell further mentioned that the HACLC is trying to put into place the New Mexico Works 369 program which will address some of the issues and not only give the Housing Authority exterior 370 appearance but also put people to work. He stressed to the Board that he is not making excuses, but 371 for them to keep in mind that it takes time to bring all of these things to bear. Commissioner Abitz 372 responded that she understands that the maintenance staff is very busy and wondered what would 373 happen if the HACLC does out source services. Mr. Hassell replied that he is not exactly aware of 374 what the crew is doing. When they prepare a unit for occupancy the question that comes to mind is, 375 has a reasonable job been done? Is the unit clean, painted? Have they done exterior maintenance 376 to the unit as well? He pointed out that in the past, the crew generally did not do exterior 377 maintenance because they were self regulated when it came to unit preparation. However, this will 378 change since two of his employees are certified to conduct HQS inspections on the units. The 379 inspectors will follow up on their work to ensure that everything that needs to be done to a unit will be 380 done. 381 382 Vice Chair Kadlecek noted that the HACLC needs to improve its cash management policies. He 383 pointed out the discussion at the strategic meeting about the need for a cash flow analysis that would 384 allow the Housing Authority to figure out what kind of cash reserves it needs to operate. Does the 385 Housing Authority have adequate reserves. He suggested that Mr. Wingard prepare a cash flow 386 analysis with the next budget request. The Vice Chair also noted that an administrative cost analysis 387 needs to be done as well. Mr. Wingard replied that he is not aware of any format to cover this area. 388 The Vice Chair suggested the hiring of a managment consultant to assist the Housing Authority with 389 its administrative cost analysis. The Board requested to have a work session in April to discuss goals 390 and objectives for 1999. 391 12. New Business. 392 8 v ' 393 The Board requested to have a presentation on the HOME Rehabilitation program for the February 394 meeting. 395 396 The Board decided to change the time for board meetings to begin at 5:00 p.m. 397 398 The Board inquired about the status of the cooperation agreement with the Dona Ana County 399 Housing Authority. Mr. Aguirre replied he is working on a draft and will have it ready for next month's 400 meeting. The commissioners suggested having a special meeting for the purposes to review and 401 discuss the cooperation agreement. 402 403 13. Media Questions. 404 405 For clarification, Sun-News reporter Jack King asked about Ms. Levey's duties as Administrative 406 Officer, a labor appeal she mentioned in her report plus the interest E. Shirley Baca and Ed Nevarez 407 expressed in the EDSS/TOP Grants. He also asked about the vouchers for the disabled Ms. 408 Talamantes mentioned in her report, the HOME Choice Program, the CHDO and the proposed 409 cooperation agreement with Dona Ana County Housing Authority. 410 411 14.
