Commissioners in Cedartown approved the local Housing Authority to go after $20 million in bonds to pay for renovations at four low income housing locations in the city.  Commissioners approved two different bonds being issued, one for $13 million for low income homes and a second for $7 million to repair housing for seniors with disabilities.


Officials said that the renovations would take at least 18 months to complete starting in January 2016 at Grayfield Apartments.


Other housing units that would be renovated includes;  the Eastview Homes on Cooper, Central and Lake Streets, at Canal Court off South College Street and the Rock Street properties; renovations will also include other scattered sites, such as properties on East Queen Street, Alpha Way and Greenwood Drive.


The Housing Authority will still take applications for new residents, but those who are interested in moving in will be put on a wait list for the time being.
