I have not been able to find the exact value of the contract. Maybe one of my “smarter”:http://bayoustjohndavid.blogspot.com/ “faster”:http://righthandthief.blogspot.com/ “friends”:http://librarychronicles.blogspot.com/ can help.
All I know is New Orleans Affordable Housing was awarded a contract between 2 and 4 million dollars to gut and remediate homes.
This is the tip of the iceberg, or should I say one of the icebergs.
While I was out surveying houses today I shot one of the houses that had been gutted by the NOAH program. It is also on the City Demolition list, the Imminent Health threat list.
So to recap, the City spent CBDG funds to clean out the house and then spends FEMA funds to demolish it. The other comical element is that the signs are NEW and they still have Donna Addkison listed as a City employee. In the last 2 years I have seen 4 of these signs and all of them in the last month.
