ISLAND HOUSING TRUST $65,000 HOUSING APPROPRIATION – VILLAGE COURT APT’S.; VINEYARD HAVEN
The Committee reviewed Island Housing Trust’s (IHT) filed deed restriction outlining the terms of the rental apartments and Chilmark’s “preference” for one of the six apartments. Chuck H. explained Philippe Jordi did not want to sign the Committee’s appropriation agreement because he wanted the same deed restriction for all three Towns that appropriated CPA funds for the acquisition of the apartments. After discussion a motion was made to require IHT to sign and file the Committee’s agreement with the property deed if it wants Chilmark’s $65,000 of CPA Affordable Housing funds. The motion was seconded and with no further discussion passed with five in favor and one abstention (Mr. Goldman).
DUKES COUNTY PHASE II CPA APPROPRIATION TO RESTORE 26 ADDITIONAL COURT HOUSE WINDOWS:
Chuck H. summarized the letter from the Dukes County Manager stating the Phase II window restoration project will come in under budget. The County is asking if it can use Chilmark’s portion of the unused Phase II funds to restore 15 additional windows. Chilmark appropriated $7,670 for Phase II and the Town’s unused share of the Phase II funds would be $738. The Committee reviewed the County’s original request for Phase II of the window restoration project and warrant article # 16 from the April 22, 2013 Annual Town Meeting. It was clear that both the application and warrant article specified the restoration of 26 court house windows. Consequently, the Committee unanimously
agreed the County may not use any unused Chilmark Phase II CPA funds for additional window “Phase III” restorations.
The May 29, 2014 meeting minutes were reviewed and approved as presented by consensus.
The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, August 20, 2014 @ 6:00 PM.
With no further business to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 6:25 PM.
Respectfully submitted, Chuck Hodgkinson, CAS.
