The City of Ann Arbor has the deeds to all of the Ann Arbor Housing Commission buildings and our staff are all city employees. We are trying to redevelop our properties with LIHTC and need the city to deed the properties over to us. The AAHC will continue to manage the properties under the new limited partnership owner through some kind of contract.
Has any other community gone through the process of acquiring your Public Housing from the municipality and/or managing property as city employees - especially if it is a LIHTC property.
I have had the same issue here in Mt. Pleasant however we are not considered City employees. I have not started our process yet.
Do the deeds have the wording "The Housing Commission By and through the City of Ann Arbor , etc."? It's reflective of how the property is owned and you must make sure that you have proper Declaration of Trusts on file for your properties.
I can recommend that you contact the St. Louis Housing Commission because they just recently went through the entire process and I believe they were considered City Employees.
It's a task from what I understand. Best of Luck and please keep me informed if you don't mind. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I am actually talking about St. Louis Housing Commission here in Central Michigan. The number there is 989-681-5100.
Good luck! By the way, those gray hairs are simply stress highlights!
