Public Housing residents are encouraged to be responsible in caring for their units. Staff understands that normal wear and tear on a unit is expected, and we make every effort to keep all units in the best possible shape for our residents. A list of standardized charges can be found here for things that fall OUTSIDE the realm of normal maintenance. If a resident needs more information on these standardized charges, please contact the MHA office to talk with the Public Housing Manager.
