Housing Member Comments:

Chairman Deel asked for housing member comments; Don Hill stated it was a little disconcerting to come here and meet and that no one from the public comes to the meetings.  I guess that is an indication of their interest of what we are doing, unfortunately.  I guess if we get another grant they will show interest.  Chairman Deel stated I would love to have another grant more so for blight and infrastructure before the whole town burns down.  Discussion was made of the last house that burnt in town.  Discussion was made regarding the grant that was turned down, it was input incorrectly.  Chairman Deel stated after he explained to the DHCD how it should have been submitted and they agreed it would have been looked at differently.
