Work Session Attendees and Purpose of the Work Session
On Thursday, March 28, 2019, the GHI Board of Directors hosted a work session with the Honorable Todd Turner, Chair, Prince George’s County Council and our District 4 Representative, the Honorable Mel Franklin, At-Large County Council Member, and the Honorable Calvin Hawkins, At-large County Council Member. Greenbelt City Council Member Colin Byrd and City of Greenbelt Department of Community and Planning Director Terry Hruby attended the work session. Two members of the GHI Audit Committee and several GHI members also attended. The purpose of the work session was to introduce GHI to these County Council Members and to discuss issues of mutual interest.
GHI Board President Steve Skolnik used this meeting to share information with the County Council Members about GHI, to provide a brief history of GHI, and to provide an overview of the GHI Homes Improvements Program (HIP). In discussing HIP, he emphasized that the $25 million dollar project would not require GHI to obtain loans as GHI’s replacement reserves program has sufficient funds to cover the cost of the project.
