Holy cow. Come home from shopping and at my door is this 40 page explanation of what will happen if this is approved which could mean moving people out of apartments depending on the new landlord wants for repairs. Apparently according to the letter public housing needs more than 26 Billion in repairs and they cannot do it based on the current rents people are paying.
So public housing will I guess be under a new program under HUD called Section 8 housing which brings in more money.
Meeting will be help here in later in May. I am totally confused and I do not need this now in my life.
After completely reading the letter I find that five different sites in Utica are switching to Section 8.

Well we had a meeting and the plan looks good. It will be a public-private operation as soon as HUD approves this which will most likely take up to two years and if they can find a private corporation to take on part ownership. I guess the big think is that the Government can't give the monies necessary to maintain these building anymore so a break with them being the sole owner may just work. I did not know that Chancellor Apartments is not considered public housing it is a State entity and apparently is funded well enough to continue as it is. I wonder how long.......
I just don;t like the fact that depending on repairs to this building we might have to be temporarily moved then brought back. I guess they will take care of the moving but that I gotta see since what he says and maintenance does may not merge. Not at my age will I be enjoying that, I am hoping I can move since I have at least two years. Of course by them I could also be dead them problem solved.
