Housing Authority Director Requests Delay in Vote

The City of New Albany and the New Albany Housing Authority worked together for months to draft a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on the future of public housing in New Albany. The City was hopeful that it would have been adopted tonight at 5:30pm during the New Albany Housing Authority’s regularly scheduled meeting.

This morning, the City of New Albany received a letter from Bob Lane (Executive Director of the New Albany Housing Authority) explaining that he instructed the Board of Commissioners Chairperson to delay voting on the Memorandum of Understanding. A full copy of the letter from Mr. Lane is attached here.

Per Mr. Lane’s request, the vote has been moved to the April 10th, 2017 meeting.
