The Conway City Council will once again enter into an agreement with the Community Action Program of Central Arkansas to help rehabilitate homes in low and moderate income area of the city.
The council will consider the new contract during its regularly scheduled meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the District Court Building.
In early 2010, the Housing and Urban Development Department required that Conway stop rehabilitation of homes until policies and procedures were updated, documented and approved by the Little Rock HUD Field Office. Those actions were completed in late 2011, and the program restarted with funds from 2009. The new contract, which the council will consider, allows CAPCA to spend an additional $70,000 on housing rehabilitation.
Under the contract, area of low and moderate income will be determined by Conway’s Community Development Department, and CAPCA will take applications and award projects in those areas.
In other business, the council will consider:
• A resolution setting a public hearing to discuss closing of a portion of street right of way located at the west end of Collins Drive in Cresthaven Phase 2 subdivision.
• Accepting bids for the Senior Citizens Parking Lot resurfacing.
• Accepting bids for the demolition of property located at 445 Louise Lane.
• An ordinance appropriating funds for nondepartmental advertising/legal notices for the city.
No committee meeting is scheduled before the council meeting.
