Crestview Housing Authority improving properties to change public opinion

Published: Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 01:53 PM.

In addition, CHA maintenance staffers — who regularly inspect units, replace air filters and encourage use of energy efficient water heaters, toilets and interior lighting to lower utility costs — check for potential signs of crime.

"We have done extensive drug training ... to target methamphetamines and other illegal substances (used inside each unit)," Maintenance supervisor Mike Riley said.

The goal is to make CHA’s properties safer, and for the public to see them that way.

"Now we are trying to get it up to the standards, where the tenants can now see it as a community,” Riley said.
