CALEXICO — Alexis Gevorgian of Los Angeles is scheduled to appear before the City Council here again to ask the council to give the Calexico Housing Authority $400,000.
The freelance housing consultant has not mentioned in public session what's in it for him if the council gives the authority $400,000.
The council, seated as the city Redevelopment Agency board, meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in City Hall.
In addition to entertaining Gevorgian's request, the board will discuss building an aquatic center.
Gevorgian is a freelance consultant who worked with the Housing Authority and Beyond Shelter Housing Corp. in June 2000 when the partners submitted an application to the California Tax Credit Committee in hopes of securing millions in tax credits for construction of affordable senior housing.
The partners received an allocation of $8.3 million in credits in November 2000.
Construction of the Victoria Manor senior housing complex on the corner of Rancho Frontera Avenue and Highway 98 was funded with loans that were taken out with the promise of those credits as collateral.
