Memorandum To: Mr. W. R. Wofford, Building Official
Weekly lists of families certified for Public
Mr. James A. Smith, Chief Housing ropestol Yj By
Several days ago a system was instigated whereby we would
receive weekly lists from A.H,A,, and we would go out immediately
to inspect the property unless we already had an active case in
our files on the particular property.
The first "batch" has been checked out and a list is attached,
which gives a synopsis by Housing Supervisor Eidson of remarks as
reported to him by the Housing Inspectors; also of the action being
taken, Attached is a copy of the A.H.A, lists furnished us.
My observation is that it has generally resulted in very little
gain for the effort involved as far as correcting housing conditions
within the City. It also seems that just about anyone who wishes to
live in Public Housing is eligible, if they say so:
I am continuing to check out these lists for Housing Code
violations as directed, and will report to you as they are checked
