Addendum to Agenda for January 25, 2016 THA Board Meeting New Business

New Maintenance Truck: Neil Gerhardt has been reviewing costs and negotiating on a new Ford Truck with a plow for our maintenance staff. Our current truck won’t make it through the winter. The truck needs a lot of work, including but not limited to: a new engine, suspension, muffler system and hydraulics. The under body is rusted and in need of new tires. The truck is 10 years old and has 109,000 miles on it. Neil Gerhardt and Jeff Holt went to two dealerships to test drive a Ford Truck with the snow plow.

Solarize SSHP: In April of 2015, CHFA selected the THA to participate in Solarize SSHP (State Sponsored Housing Portfolio) for the Congregate Building. At the time, THA was one of 36 housing authorities that were selected.

Based on Solarize SSHP, the THA is not paying for the installation of the solar panels, nor the connectivity and equipment.

Over the past several months Harriet Polansky, Executive Director for the THA, Millennium and Attorney Melanie Rausch have been working with CHFA, CT Green Bank and C-TEC Solar on this solar project.
