The Chairperson called the meeting to order at 6:00 PM. The minutes of the regular meeting held in May were presented. The Chairperson asked for a motion to adopt the minutes of the May meeting. Resident Commissioner Sauve made a motion to adopt the minutes as presented. Commissioner Poling seconded the motion. Chairperson Castiglione asked if there was any discussion. Commissioner Ryan questioned Resolution #777 about the changes that were be made and should they not be mentioned in the minutes. There are multiple changes as each development is different. She also questioned the By-Laws are they not sent to HUD. The By-Laws were sent to New York State.

The Chairperson asked if there were any comments from the public. Apt #302 from Kingsboro Towers spoke to the Board and thanked everyone for all they do for the residents at Kingsboro Towers. This resident told the Board of the many activities that have been happening at Kingsboro Towers; movie night, cook outs, dinners, etc. However, she did speak about the residents in the building not feeling safe, we have had the police in the building twice within the last seven days. She stated there is information that is being passed around that is not true and this frightens a lot of the residents. She has come to the Board to make them aware and ask them for help as the fear is real. Chairperson Castiglione advised the Board wants the residents to be happy and safe and if there is an issue here you have to talk to Executive Director Reynolds and Tenant Relations Assistant Linda Lizio so they can do whatever needs to be done so everyone feels safe. The Chairperson advised he was glad she brought these situations to the Board’s attention as they want the residents to be safe and happy.
