Tax money funds repair of 10 families in former Bennett Freeze
For nearly a decade, Arabella Cook applied for housing discretionary funds to renovate a section of her home. And for nearly a decade, she was told that there weren’t any funds.
“Each time I asked, I was told, ‘There is no money,” the 78-year-old said. “I just gave up.”
It wasn’t until Cook was driving by a residence recently that she saw building materials and men in workwear renovating a home, prompting her to apply once more after asking if funds were available.
