The City of Schenectady was recently awarded a $1.1 million HUD grant. Schenectady plans to demolish up to 9 old, dilapidated structures. The structures will be replaced with housing for low-income families.
It's a win-win for a city like Schenectady. Eye-sores are removed and a housing need is filled at "no cost to the taxpayer."
These grants are 'found money' and cities would be foolish not to take advantage of them. With Harry's penchant for demolition this is right up his alley and we can't wait to see what will be done with Troy's $1,000,000 HUD grant.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving and we'll see you next week.
