Housing authority spending practices questioned

Brian Meyer of The Buffalo News used city records to show that "the agency that runs public housing in Buffalo set aside nearly $124,000 last July for trips, credit card spending, cell phones, insurance and stipends for its seven volunteer commissioners for this fiscal year. ... This is the same Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority that plans to abolish its police force and lay off all 26 officers by July 1 in order to balance its budget." Among the perks are health and dental insurance for five of the seven commissioners.
