REPORTS BY CITY MANAGER, CITY COUNCIL, STAFF, COMMITTEES
  The City Manager noted that Hampton’s human services staff made a presentation during the afternoon work session on how the city is working with the persons being displaced from the Buckroe Trailer Park if anyone is interested in viewing it when replayed on Channel 47 or via the web. She reiterated that the relationship between tenants and landlords is contractual and the city isn’t involved with that but human services works with any citizen who qualifies for public assistance and outreach efforts have been made.
Miscellaneous New Business
  Councilwoman Leary shared some ideas which arose at a meeting she held on January 4, 2011, which involve a possible land swap with Langley Air Force Base. She reminded citizens of meetings she will be having on January 27, and February 16, 2011, as were announced during the afternoon session.

Councilman Tuck expressed the idea of suggesting to the school system that we possibly use one of the unused schools to create a place to assist with the problem of homelessness.

Councilman Stuart asked for the methodology used to distribute the type of fire trucks housed in various stations so that he might share the information. He also asked if we can get at least a mail box in the Buckroe area since the Post Office there has closed.

Councilwoman Leary asked if the City Manager and Councilman Kearney would share information on the process being used to select the new Superintendent for the Regional Jail. Councilman Kearney expressed that, as the alternate to the Tidewater Regional Jail Authority, she receives minutes and is always welcome to attend the meetings.

Vice Mayor Wallace shared that despite the poor economy, the regional airport exceeded their record number of passengers.
