The New Agreement accomplished several things….It:Reaffirmed the role of the OBTDB as the implementers of the CRA’s redevelopment programsEnhanced coordination between the OBTDB and County staffProvided for consistency with County Processes and Procedures relating to such things as budgeting and purchasing and contracts.And, it strengthened the role of the BCC acting as the CRA by requiring regular updates and specifying the types of expenditures requiring your explicit approval (you hear from Mr. Grief periodically regarding the progress of the plans and programs that he manages on behalf of the CRA).That new agreement had an ORIGINAL termination date of September 30, 2008 and was renewable for two successive 2-year terms.
