Pecoraro to head community affairs, housing committee

March 16, 1998

Westminster Councilman L. Gregory Pecoraro will head the Committee on Housing and Community Affairs, recently created to fill a gap in the council's committee responsibilities.

The committee will consider areas such as economic development, urban renewal, building standards, social services, landlord-tenant disputes, publicly supported housing and agriculture.

Pecoraro also heads the Finance Committee, which oversees the city budget, taxes and user fees, local bond authorizations, employee benefits, investments and procurement.

Councilman Damian L. Halstad, chairman of the Committee for Public Safety, will serve as a member of the new committee.

New standing committee assignments are usually made at the next reorganization meeting, which will be held after city elections in May 1999.
