Council Creates New Advisory Board

Ann Arbor, MI – Ann Arbor's city council has voted to create a new housing and human services advisory board to address housing issues for low income families.
Council voted eight to three Monday night to create the new board and eliminate the existing community development executive commitee and the housing policy board.
Council member Stephen Kunselman voted against the change, saying it could reduce the funds getting to low-income residents.
The majority of council said the new plan will be more efficient and reduce administrative costs.
The changes will take place at the end of June when the current fiscal year ends.
