Letter to the Editor

Was program really necessary?

To the Editor:

I am wondering how much money from the city or county was spent on all these houses that were built and sitting empty.

Some of the houses built, to me, were built in areas that I think people wouldn't want to spend that much money to live across from run-down trailers and such. Again, this is just my opinion.

These houses have been sitting empty for nearly a year. Makes no sense.

Was this a good idea? What did the building of these houses take money away from in the community? Maybe just a couple of houses should have been built to see how it would go instead of building so many that are sitting empty.
