US Department of Housing and Urban Development Takes Possession of Alexander Co. Housing Authority

Alexander Co. — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is taking possession of the Alexander County Housing Authority. The announcement was made effective immediately yesterday morning. The move will remove all members of the Alexander County Board. HUD says this decision comes after a pattern of financial and operational mismanagement, poor housing conditions, and alleged civil rights violations against the households the local housing authority was responsible for assisting.
