Three Public Meetings Wednesday On Gary-HUD Agreement
August 6, 2013 — Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson and HUD Assistant Secretary Sandra Henriquez signed a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement last week to address administrative, financial and management concerns at the Gary Housing Authority. Henriquez will join Freeman-Wilson tomorrow at three town hall meetings throughout the Steel City to explain how the partnership will work.
The meetings will be held at the Genesis Towers Ballroom Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m., at New Mount Moriah Baptist Church, from noon until 1:30 p.m. and at The Center on West 37th Avenue from 3 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. Attendees will get an opportunity to ask questions and share any suggestions or feedback.
The agreement with HUD follows years of financial mismanagement and low occupancy rates among other issues. HUD is leading the effort to get the GHA back on track.
