Does the Housing Authority cover any damages left after a family has moved out?
No. A landlord that participates in the Housing Choice Voucher Program would handle any damages left by a tenant the same way they would handle those from an unsubsidized tenant. If a tenant leaves your property not in good standing or has been evicted, they can or will lose their voucher. Anytime a landlord issues a lease violation to a tenant, it is recommended that they copy the Housing Authority they work with and follow up with them.
Is anything different when I check in to vote?
Similar to all other elections, before you receive a ballot, you will be asked to sign an oath that you are eligible to vote in the election. For the March 3 election, state law requires that this oath also contain an additional line that reads "I certify that I am in general agreement with the principles of the party for whose candidate I intend to vote."
What are the new FEMA floodplain boundaries, and is my property affected?
In 2016, FEMA announced changes to the floodplain boundaries. Some property owners within or close to the floodplain may have received letters from their mortgage companies requiring the purchase of flood insurance. Other property owners may find themselves no longer required to carry flood insurance, based on the new data.
