2.Public Comments   
Jeff Jackson, Housing Rehabilitation Specialist with Housing Authority of Jackson County, presented a potential future CDBG neighborhood infrastructure project. Mr. Jackson introduced concerns regarding failing septic lines in the Beal Lane area, which was annexed into the city. This area consists of 11, .5 acre parcels with septic systems originally installed in the 50s and 60s. The condition of these lines may present an emergency if not rehabilitated in the near future. Replacement of the main line is estimated at $200,000 with additional homeowner repair costs $3,000-$5,000 for each home. Commissioners asked several questions and would invite looking at this project application under future CDBG program years.
