No Cigarettes in Compactors

There are plans to power-wash all trash compactor chutes. In addition, we will be enforcing a policy restricting residents and their guests from improperly disposing of cigarette butts or smoking in the hallways. Residents who witness others smoking in the hallway or discarding cigarettes in the trash compactor chute should notify the housing authority immediately at 201-798-0370 or the manager’s office at 201-239-2181. This behavior puts the residents of the HHA at risk.

Work Orders Must be Placed

It is your responsibility to place a work order for any repairs. A clerk will contact residents within 48 hours to schedule a time for maintenance workers to make repairs. If a resident is not contacted, he or she should contact the manager in order to follow up on the work order. The manager will investigate the issue and provide the resolution. If the manager also fails to call, contact Executive Director  or his assistant.

How to Avoid Mold

The best way to eliminate or avoid mold is to remove air conditioners before winter arrives. Due to condensation, mold will be created when cold air seeps in through the windows from improperly installed air conditioners. If you are unable to remove an air conditioner, maintenance workers can help. With winter quickly approaching, it is wise to report any broken radiator valves and to inspect insulation. Valves and insulation, if it has come apart due to normal wear and tear, will be replaced at no cost to tenants. Work with us to make your home a better place and to make the housing authority a healthy place to live.

Rent Statements

Monthly rent statements are used for tenants’ convenience. Effective January 1, 2007, anyone paying rent in person must bring along a rent statement, which will be stamped, initialed and dated by cashier and returned as a receipt. Any adjustments or balances owed will be noted on the receipt that is returned to tenants. Complying with this request to bring rent statements will help HHA to serve all residents quickly and to ensure that the payment process moves more quickly.

Late Charges

A $25 late fee will be assessed after the fifth business day of the month. After the 14th day, a delinquency notice is sent. After the 20th day, court proceedings are initiated.

One Strike

If a resident or guest is involved in any type of activity, the resident can be removed from public housing.
