Subject: 2005-2006 Heating Season


With the current volatility of the national and international energy markets, it is certain to be a costly and difficult winter for all of us. Compounding this are predictions that the 2005-2006 heating season is anticipated to be colder than the last winter season.

DHCR will be closely monitoring energy cost changes during the course of the winter. This will be particularly important as we move forward with any discussions about whether rent or carrying charge increases might be necessary.

As the first step in our monitoring, we are requesting that you provide us with your total utility expenditures for each fuel type in each of the 8 months of the 2004-2005 heating season, from October 2004 through May 2005. Your Housing Management Representative will contact you within the next two weeks about this information. You may use the attached chart to record the data.

Subsequent to our receipt of this base information and for each month of the 2005-2006 heating season, you should submit your utility cost data on an ongoing basis. Also attached is a chart that can be used for the 2005-2006 heating season.

Please send this information to Elliot Ashrey, Assistant Director, at the above address, or e-mail it to him at eashrey@nyshcr.org. Mr Ashrey can be reached at 212-480-7258.
