Housing program move proposed
From Martinsville to Danville
By MICKEY POWELL - Bulletin Staff Writer
Martinsville is considering turning over its housing assistance program, which also serves Henry County residents, to Danville as a money-saving measure.
The move could result in several city employees losing their jobs. However, city and county households in the program still would be served locally by officials who would come into the community on a scheduled basis, said Assistant City Manager/Community Development Director Wayne Knox.
At 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Martinsville City Council will consider a resolution to transfer the administration of the city’s Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program to the Danville Redevelopment and Housing Authority.
