Starting a new year always starts with new ideas, new resolutions and a new resolve.
This year the Westwego Housing Authority will begin to institute new changes as well.
In 2019, we will begin to do video home inspections. This will allow us to properly document the conditions of units in the housing authority inventory.
Our previous system was flawed because it depended solely on the written reporting from our maintenance inspectors. If residents had disputes with the inspection report it turned into a battle of opinions.
With video inspections, it will eliminate any doubt as to the condition of the units. It can be viewed by our staff and the resident alike and will allow us to compare the conditions to Housing Quality Standards (HQS).
In other business, I am proud of the WHA Board of Commissioners. We just had a successful retreat that continued our theme of training and teamwork.
Also, please be aware of the freezing temperatures this month. Please call us if you need help weatherizing your home. Let’s continue to look out for our neighbors and make sure that everyone has what they need to weather the winter storms.
