We're back with foreclosures and evictions. Presentations: www-static.bouldercolorado.gov/docs/Item_6A_C…
Since we last visited this, a federal eviction moratorium was passed. It allows renters earning less than $99K to sign a declaration that they would be homeless or have to live with other people to avoid eviction due to non-payment. Available through Dec. 31, 2020.
Locally, evictions are down (since so much of 2020, they haven't been allowed)

Since June: 27 eviction filings per month in Boulder courts (vs. 82 each month in 2019)
Some other things I jotted down. 2020 city spending (Health equity and Human services funds)
Food Security = $1.7 million
Direct Health Services = $1.7 million
Wellness, Health Care Access Services = $1.1 million
Economic Mobility, and Inclusivity = $600,000
Also $590,000 for rental assistance, older adult services, minor home repair
A look at some of the demand: Jan - July 2020

Attention Homes Runaway and Homeless Youth Services: 78 youth served and over 4,000 referrals for other basic needs and services

EFAA Keep Families Housed (rental assistance): 741 Boulder households assisted
EFAA Shelter and Basic Needs: 960 Boulder households received financial assistance (65% increase compared to January – June 2019)

SPAN: emergency shelter to 95 Boulder adult survivors and 36 children
Since April 12, 650+ calls to Housing Helpline
Sorry I'm not tweeting more but I'm tired. Started my fellowship this a.m. with 4 hours on Zoom. So that will make 10 hours of Zoom meetings for me today, depending on when council finishes.
Also, the audio sucks. Not sure if it's my internet or the speaker's but damn.
Brockett: Are we running low on rental assistance $$?
No, says Kristin Hyser. But not knowing what's ahead of us, bringing more resources could only serve the community. What we have now "should carry us for awhile."
That's all for this one. @threadreaderapp please unroll. Thanks!

One item before CU South is about adding bus stops and a multi-use path along East Arapahoe. You can learn more here: documents.bouldercolorado.gov/WebLink/DocVie…
As Brockett reminds us, Boulder got a lot of federal $$ for this, via DRCOG (Denver Regional Council of Governments) so yay!
This was a council call-up, but they ain't calling it up. So that's that for that.

People of #Boulder. The time is now. Only one item* on tonight's city council agenda: A decision on the CU South annexation. Catch yourself up here: boulderbeat.news/2021/04/17/cu-…

*There are more, but I'm only tweeting about annexation.
There have been a few last-minute changes. We'll go over those tonight.
Nothing earth-shattering, from what I can tell.

We'll be getting to our city attorney search update after a couple of declarations. Here's the staff presentation. Looks like we'll have a city attorney by Oct. 12. documents.bouldercolorado.gov/WebLink/DocVie…
Well, we'll have one named by then. Start date is TBD.
Finalists will be named at the Sept. 28 meeting.
A reminder that council reopened this search after we only got 12 applicants the first time, and they weren't impressed with the two finalists. boulderbeat.news/2021/06/23/cit…

Well, we've arrived #Boulder. Tonight is the public hearing for the CU South annexation.

Oh, and a quick update on the city attorney search. Stay tuned. Coming to you soon.
A reminder that the vote is not tonight. That's next week.
But we will get some info from staff and CU, as is usual for annexations.

Next up: Discussion of COVID biz recovery from the city regulation perspective, which mostly includes outdoor dining.

Staff presentation: documents.bouldercolorado.gov/WebLink/DocVie…
I only have a few notes on this, bc the packet item on this was as dense as a pound cake.
88 biz benefitted from looser city rules
6% of survey respondents (542 biz) used it

Moving on to Boulder's lobbying agenda. That is, what the city will ask state and fed lawmakers to do. Or not to do.
This is like my fourth one I'm covering and the only notable difference is that so much stuff from the last one got done last year at the state level.
