“April is Fair Housing month,” reported Library Director Cathie McDowell at the Snowflake Town Council regular meeting on Tuesday, April 24, noting that since the town benefits from Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding, it is required that the council support and adopt Fair Housing practices.

“This is their way of making sure we do things the way we’re supposed to do,” said McDowell. “We’ve already done a lot in our community because we have the housing available for people that need it at a lower cost. We need to make sure if any issues come up we can direct them on how to handle it.”

Council members unanimously approved Resolution No. 12-05, adopting a Fair Housing Policy.
