The NY Times reports on a recent Inspector General report concerning widespread mismanagement of subsidized housing in NYC. The Department of Housing and Community Renewal has been found to have bungled oversight and management of a wide variety of housing complexes.

This article is only tangentially related to Jamestown, but the Jamestown Lawyer is concerned in reading it. DHCR doesn't only operate and oversee subsidized housing in NYC. It's also the agency that enforces mobile home park laws. If the agency track record is poor in an area where they face massive scrutiny and frequent investigation, what are the chances that complaints and policies are being properly administered in WNY?
