(August 28, 2008) Auditors presented their annual audit report to the Ypsilanti Housing Commission Board. Staff discussed the upcoming meeting to review the residents satisfaction survey.

Housing Commission Director Walter Norris reported to the board that a unit with a report of carbon monoxide. Norris said the fault was the stove that was dirty and the Housing Commission would be billing the tenant.

Norris also talked about the three outside contractors that are doing ‘make-ready’ work to get vacant units ready. This contractor makes needed repair including repairing floors, walls, and painting.

Since March, they have turned over 6 units and told the board that they will work through the night

Norris said a separate contractor is used to clean the units to get ready for move-in. Norris told the board that neither contractor is doing anything to repair and replace screens. Norris said they need a specialty contractor to make the screens and they need frames made for each window on a custom basis because each window is different and the company that made the window is out of business.
