06/17/2009: "Joint Housing Authority Proposed"
The Town Council will receive a presentation Thursday (06-18-09 at 12:30 in Town Hall) on forming a combined Housing Authority with the County.
Some of the county council members have posed a number of questions that required discussion prior to a council vote on creating a new government office that would have independent authority. Councilmember Richard Fralick (Orcas) put his questions in writing and forwarded them to the full council.
After additional discussion, the council agreed to ask the Town of Friday Harbor for their opinion, and if they had an interest in forming a joint housing authority.
