Present: Richard, Ryan, Donny, Corey, Paul, Amanda, Ashli, Carey
(Hannah) Reinstate Outreach Coordinator position.
Taken up by Ryan
Ryan: She wants to take on the Outreach Coordinator position so we can accept more prospective residents from populations we want to do outreach to.
Carey: Is this going to happen often enough to justify us keeping the position? We have people who have personal projects that they get credit for, without being officers.
Ryan: She wants to reach out to Tenant-Based Rental Assistance programs that provide assistance based on the tenant, not based on the unit like the HACA vouchers. Hannah knows a few of these organizations and wants to find more to make contact with.
Paul: Would this eliminate the previous agenda item?
Paul: She's only proposing to do one of the points on the Outreach Coordinator description, though.
Carey: If this isn't a doable position with a feasible scope, I don't think an officer-ship is the best way to go.
Ryan: We could structure this in different ways, for example another sunset clause. Hannah just really wants to do this particular project.
Carey: Friendly amendment - A 6 month project
Ryan: Okay, I don't think we need to get rid of the sunset clause, because that just entails us reviewing the position, which can still happen after 6 months with this as a trial phase in the interim.
Donny: So this would be a labor project for an individual, designated co-oper, and she wouldn't have to attend coordinator meetings, wouldn't be held accountable as an officer, and couldn't be no-showed for it?
Carey: Yes, but we'd still hold her accountable based on the proposal she's given.
Richard: I think the amendment effectively tables this item (until the sunset clause comes up).
Corey: Friendly amendment - Bring Outreach Coordinator back for 3 months and then revisit it
Friendly amendments NOT accepted
Richard: There's no requirement at this time to review the officer-ship in 6 months. It'll just be automatically reinstated.
Corey: I think people will do that on their own as a group.
Richard: Friendly amendment - The position won't be a Coordinator position but a project with a set date
Friendly amendment accepted
(Ashli) Offer Ashli a month-to-month lease.
Richard: I'm going to seek help from Meg to complete the labor report. I'm no-showing myself an hour for every week that I'm behind on no-show reports.
Donny: More Travis County contractors are coming out this week. They're going to be starting on energy-efficiency work.
