The city of Belleville will hold a committee meeting Wednesday to evaluate the new crime-free housing program.
The Crime Free Housing Committee will hold its first meeting Wednesday.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers of City Hall, 101 S. Illinois St.
The committee is required to meet at least twice a year to evaluate the program, which is meant to help lower crime in rental housing.
The group also will address any concerns residents have about the crime-free housing ordinance that the City Council approved in September.
The 10-member committee is a mix of elected officials, residents, landlords, tenants and real estate agents.
The committee members are Ward 1 Alderman Ken Kinsella as committee chairman, Ward 6 Alderman Bob White, Patty Herr, Patrick Eschman, Vanessa Smith, Tricia Tialdo, Walter Hood, Beverly Fiss, Kevin Bouse and John Durako.
The public meeting will include an overview of the crime-free housing ordinance; a report from the Housing Department on the program's implementation, revenue and expenditures; a report from the Police Department on statistics; and a motion to approve equipment expenses for the program.
