New housing coordinator encouraged optimistic by Bill Mertens Mike Donahey is encouraged and optimistic about his Job right now. But he a just beginning. His satisfaction quotient May be better realized in a year depending upon his Success in locating housing for Low and elderly Burlington renters.

Dept of housing and Urban development. But there Are divisions within the program also. The City Council earlier this week approved a housing proposal for construction of apartments in a vacant area in Maple Hills. The local Hopes Are for funding under the Sec. 8 program but Donahey will not be involved with that project. His chores entail locating local families in need of housing assistance and helping them find suitable housing. The Maple Hills project Calls for a private Developer to buy the 10-acre site now owned by the City build the apartments find the families who qualify to live there collect the rent and oversee the operation. The Council has sanctioned two proposals submitted by local developers but recommended to the Federal housing administration that the one from a partnership headed by Adair Spear be approved for funding. Cha has earmarked housing assistance funds for such a project in Burlington a up to $250,000 a year for the next 20 years. If Cha gives the final stamp of approval to the Spear proposal those funds would go for rent subsidies for the renters chosen and Spear would be eligible to receive an Cha insured loan for construction. There is no construction planned in the program Donahey will coordinate although Federal dollars have also been set aside for rent subsidies Here. This portion of the Section 8 program deals with existing housing according to Donahey a Clinton native who worked with Community action in another housing program in Marshalltown for to months. He has been hired by the Burlington Low rent housing Agency which manages autumn Heights High Rise on Vinegard or for elderly citizens. He is not a City employee but Likely will be working with the City staff in locating renters and rental units. Hud has approved funding for rental of 150 existing housing units in Burlington but has attached various restrictions on the housing that can be chosen. The most stringent restriction involves monthly rents. Subsidies will not be provided for units where monthly rent and utilities Bills top $131 for a one bedroom apartment or House up to $191 for a four bedroom housing unit.

A one of the things Well have to work against is those rent limits a said Donahey. 25, a University of Iowa graduate. A a in a confident Well get enough people in the program. If we can get the landlords to go along then Well meet the 150 that May prove a stumbling Block also since Hud requires inspections of the housing facilities before rent subsidies Are allowed and the landlords must make financial records on the units available to Donahey. Probably his first obstacle will be locating rental units. He has been warned of the Lack of available housing in Burlington. His Boss autumn Heights administrator Tony Stanley says the vacancy rate locally is about 2%. Donahey will encourage applicants to the program remain in their existing locations if it qualifies. Of the funding available for 150 units 20 must be for elderly renters and up to 40% of the total for the very Low income families. In Des Moines county financial guidelines for very Low income families ranges from $5,100 for a single person to $9,700 for a family of eight or More. Restrictions for Low income families Start about $8,000, which is said to be about 50% of the mean annual income in Des Moines county. Persons making less than those income restrictions could qualify for this program. There Are no asset restrictions although persons with considerable assets and Little actual income must apply 10% of their assets to their stated annual income. Beginning sept. 7, Donahey will Start taking applications from families interested in participation in the program. He will have to investigate the financial information Given him by the applicants. After the Check those who qualify Are Given certificates. Those persons must find suitable housing or seek to have their existing housing approved. If All that works out those persons Start paying less for rent then they have been. Low income families who qualify for the program and find housing would be paying no More than 25% of their adjusted incomes toward rent and utilities very Low income families would pay no More than 15%. Uncle Sam would make up the rest through direct payments to the landlords. Hud and the local housing Agency have an 18-month contract and Hud has approved a $286,780 budget for the period. That applies strictly to housing in Burlington now but Donahey says the program might be expanded to the entire county in the future. He will Pace himself Early attempting Only to do a few units at a time in the first months. The primary of the program is to offer financial assistance to the Low and very Low income families although Donahey and others involved Hope it would also inspire landlords to put some of the Money received Back into the housing units.
