Re; June meeting report
The committee met on June 1st. There was extensive discussion on the Mayor’s budget and the provisions of legislation on rent relief due to the Corona virus and attendant economic ills before the City Council. We supported Commissioner Cristeal’s recommendations to the other Commissioners for an ANC resolution regarding these legislative proposals.
There was also considerable discussion about recommending extending support for a middle-class rent relief provision to the impending legislation, without resolution. This discussion is continuing.
Finally, the committee considered the question of affordable housing in Ward 3, which has somewhat been put on hold by the Corona virus emergency, and a meeting with Council Member Cheh; this discussion is also ongoing.
