The Housing Authority is made up of seven commissioners: five City Council members and two appointed tenant members. They serve two-year terms. The tenant members must be tenants in Housing Authority properties and at least one must be age 62 or older. The tenant members have the same equal voting rights as City Councilmembers. Housing Authority commissioners receive $100.00 compensation per meeting attended.
