Broad Street CDA Expects Budget Shortfalls Will Continue

Monthly meeting of the Broad Street Community Development Authority [CDA occurred on May 21, 2009 at 9 AM in the offices of Troutman Sanders Attorneys, located at the Troutman Sanders Building, 1001 Haxall Point, near the old Hydro-electric plant on the James River.

To learn more about the Broad Street CDA, check out a website I put up in 2003,

Lynn Ivey gave an overview of the budget from 6:00 - 18:00 minutes, shortfalls were expected to continue in the next year, new contracts for insurance [entered into without legal consultation] and a new contract for expanded elevator service, saving money on legal expenses is something the board is trying to reign in. Yvette Neville, an upper level manager with Standard Parking will be leaving the company soon and Johnnie Hougue, also with Standard Parking would pick-up duties formerly performed by Ms. Neville, in an effort to save the Authority money. A new contract for parking with the Commonwealth of Virginia.

I made a comment at the end of the meeting about having materials for citizens to review since it is a public meeting and a public board.

Watch the entire meeting below, an hour and a half long.
