Resolution of the City Council, City of Hampton, Virginia, in support of House Bill No. 2639, a Bill to Limit the Number of Local Governing Body Members Who May Serve on a Redevelopment and Housing Authority.

 

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, over the last several years, the Council of the City of Hampton (Council) has reviewed from time to time the Hampton Redevelopment and Housing Authority (Authority) board structure; and

WHEREAS, the Council has concluded that the Authority Board should include citizen members; and

WHEREAS, Delegate Tom Gear introduced in the 2007 Virginia General Assembly House Bill No. 2639 (HB 2639) which provides that Notwithstanding any other provision of law, general or special, at least seventy-five percent (75%) of the commissioners of a Redevelopment and Housing Authority shall be persons who are not members of the governing body of any county, city or town; and

WHEREAS, it is the understanding of Council that the effect of HB 2639, if enacted, would require that at least five commissioners of the Authority be residents of the City of Hampton, and with this understanding, it is the desire of Council to support HB 2639.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia, that it supports HB 2639 as introduced by Delegate Tom Gear, limiting the number of local governing body members who may serve on a Redevelopment and Housing Authority.

ADOPTED at the regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia, held on January 24, 2007.
