    1.  A motion was made by Steven Kirk and seconded by Eugene Reppenhagen to accept the
      minutes of the previous meeting. All in favor.
    2.  The rehab status report was presented. There were no projects completed during the previous
      month and 1 project out to bid.
    3.  The CDA program income report was presented for the month of December 2011. The
      account balance was $94,210.43 at the end of December 2011. Mag world is current on their
      payments.
    4.  The Grant Status report for the month of December 2011 was presented to the Board. HOME
      2008 funds as of today had a zero balance and will be removed off the report. HOME 2009 fund
      has a balance of $78,504.25 which is all encumbered. There has been no activity with the 2010
      AHC Grant. The CDBG 2011 grant has a balance of $400,000.
    5.  Nick Zabawsky gave updates on the Affordable Housing Grant. There has been no activity
      under the Affordable Housing Grant. We have one homeowner in process, looking for an
      alternative site, since the previous site had water and sewer lines running through the property
      and was not buildable.
    6.  A discussion was held regarding the demolition of the Baptist Church. The state is ready to
      process final payment to the City, but they are waiting on paperwork to be sent in. There was a
      hold up with papers being signed because of a disagreement between a contractor and
      subcontractor, but has been resolved.
    7.  A discussion was held regarding the UDAG loan pool. The CDA is concerned that without the
      monthly reports that have been requested, there is no accountability. The Agency has not
      received any reports since August of 2011. A motion was made by Eugene Reppenhagen and 2nd
      by Frank DeSantis to write a formal letter to Mike Reese and Agency outlining the concerns. All
      in favor.
    8.  Nick again reported that there is no progress on the Estee School. Uri Kaufman was interested
      in the building but is waiting for EDC and the developer to come to terms.
    9.  With the new CDBG grant for housing rehabilitation, new procurements for consultants and
      lead inspectors will be required. An ad was submitted to the Leader Herald looking for
      Consultants, Contractors and Lead Risk Assessor and Clearance Inspector. Rachel will hand out
      RFPs for any parties who respond to the advertising. WBE & MBE recruiting is also being
      undertaken to comply with CDBG regulations.
    10.  A motion was made by Eugene Reppenhagen and seconded by Frank DeSantis to enter into
      an agreement with the City of Gloversville and the Gloversville Community Development
      Agency regarding the CDBG 2011 Housing Rehabilitation Program. All in favor. Eugene
      Reppenhagen requested that copies of the contract be provided to all Agency members prior to
      signing of the contract.
    11.  A motion to adjourn was made at 4:05 by Steven Kirk and seconded by Eugene Reppenhagen.
