Housing Authority Board of Commissioners

The Housing Authority Board of Commissioners has two (2) Openings for board vacancies. The purpose and mission of the Housing Authority is to provide decent, safe and affordable housing to eligible low- income applicants within our jurisdiction. The role of the Board is to develop policy and monitor performance of all Federal and State housing programs. Commissioners are responsible for overseeing the operations, expenditures of federal monies and help direct the management of programs that benefit the community and to ensure the provision of quality services to the residents of our housing properties. We will provide training for new Commissioners. The meetings are monthly on the second Tuesday of the month at 4 PM.
