[00:00:01]

GOING TO CONVENE HERE AT 12:12 PM ON, UH, JUNE 10TH, 2021.

THE, UH, BOARD MEETING OF THE AUSTIN HOUSING FINANCE CORPORATION MEETING IS BEING HELD, UH, VIRTUALLY, UH, WE HAVE A QUORUM OF THE DIRECTORS THAT ARE PRESENT.

UH, DO WE HAVE ANY SPEAKER? WE HAVE ONE SPEAKER THAT SIGNED UP.

CAN YOU INCREASE CALL HER JOSEPH? THANK YOU.

WE CAN HEAR YOU TO SAY THANK YOU.

AND THEN WE LOST HER.

OKAY.

ALL OF THESE, I DIDN'T REALIZE YOU BASE IT ON THE NUMBER WHO ACTUALLY SIGN UP.

OTHERWISE I WOULD HAVE CALLED SOONER, BUT I DIDN'T WANT TO JUST BE ON HOLD.

I FIGURED YOU'D CALL ME BACK TO BACK LIKE YOU HAD IN THE PAST.

SO AT ANY RATE, UM, I JUST WANTED TO MAKE A FEW COMMENTS SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO A SPARROW RUTLAND.

MANY OF THE COMMENTS THAT YOU HEARD ABOUT CANDLE WITH SWEETS ACTUALLY APPLIES TO THIS AREA, TOO.

I JUST WANT TO CALL YOUR ATTENTION SPECIFICALLY TO THE MARCH 11TH, 2020 BOARD BOOK FOR THE TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY AFFAIRS.

THAT IS WHERE THE INFORMATION AS IT RELATED TO THE BUS STOP WAS LOCATED.

SO TO MANDATE THE MAIL, I WOULD JUST SAY, IF YOU PLAN TO REFER TO A BUS ROUTE, IT NEEDS TO BE AN ACTUAL APPLICATION AND JUST FYI MIRROR, UM, 8 0 3, METRO RAPID IS NOT WITHIN A HALF A MILE WALKING DISTANCE FROM 1934, SPARROW RUTLAND.

I WANT TO CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO SECTION THREE OF THE HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT.

UM, INFORMATION IT'S SPECIFICALLY TALKS ABOUT FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AND TO PROVIDE TRAINING, EMPLOYMENT AND CONTRACTING AND OTHER ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES TO LOW AND VERY LOW INCOME PERSONS.

AND I JUST WANT TO ASK YOU TO CONSIDER, UH, THE NEED TO ACTUALLY USE SOME OF THE AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN FUNDING FOR TRANSPORTATION, SPECIFICALLY FOR THE INDIVIDUALS THAT YOU'RE GOING TO PLACE IN PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING.

AND THAT AMOUNT WOULD BE ABOUT 5.7 MILLION.

YOU'LL TALK ABOUT THAT LATER, BUT SHE HAD 14.6 MILLION IN YOUR CONTINGENCY.

UM, SO I JUST WANTED TO CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO THAT.

AND ALSO JUST WANT YOU TO RECOGNIZE THAT, UM, THERE WAS A LACK OF TRANSPARENCY AS IT RELATED TO THE SUMMIT GOES, AND I JUST WILL CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO THE MARCH 23RD, 2021 WORK SESSION.

UH, THEIR TRANSCRIPT IS ONLINE WHERE COUNCIL MEMBER ALTRA SAID THAT THE SUMMIT ITSELF WAS A LITTLE OPAQUE AND COUNCIL MEMBER POO ACTUALLY MENTIONED THAT SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHO THE CONVENER OF THE SUMMIT WAS.

SO IF THE MEMBERS ON COUNCIL ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH WHAT WAS HAPPENING WITH THE SUMMIT, THEN WE IN THE PUBLIC DON'T KNOW EITHER.

AND SO I WOULD JUST ASK TRANSPARENTLY FOR DIANA GRAY TO TELL US HOW A SPARROW RUTLAND BECAME THE PRIORITY.

UM, I JUST WANT TO CALL YOUR ATTENTION LASTLY, TO KSAN, THERE WAS A REPORT ABOUT, UM, MAY 3RD JUST AFTER THE BAND PASSED AND IT ACTUALLY SHOWED ONLY 50 YEARS FOR RUTLAND.

AND NOW IT'S 101 OUT OF 171.

AND SO I'M JUST NOT SURE OF YOUR TIME PRIORITY, BUT I WOULD ASK YOU TO RECOGNIZE THE NEEDS.

SO PLEASE RESTORE A TWO 40 RUTLAND, WHICH WAS $945,000 IN.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, MANDY.

NUMBER THREE IS RELATED TO A SPARE.

WHAT, WHAT LONDON THAT IS AUTHORIZING US TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE GROUND.

I OFFER ALL OF THESE ON CONSENT AND I'M HAPPY TO TAKE ANY QUESTIONS.
