Sanitation Fee Increase Effective 1/1/2018

On November 20, 2017, the Housing Authority Board of Commissioners voted to approve the Sanitation Fee rate increase from $5.00 to $8.00 monthly effective 1/1/2018. This is a monthly recurring charge to residents. This increase is due to increased fees that the Housing Authority must pay for sanitation. This is the first increase in fees since the sanitation fee began on 9/1/2006. Public Comments are welcome.

Build-a-Bed Project

On October 28, 2017, Habitat for Humanity, Volunteer & Information Center and the Housing Authority of Henderson sponsored a project to benefit the children of Henderson. Participants worked in shifts throughout the day to build 50 beds for children in need. Volunteers exceeded their goal by building more than 50 beds.
The beds, along with pillows, mattresses and “bedtime bags” that included sheets, blankets, comforters, night lights, stuffed animals, books and other night-time essentials, were delivered to children who were recommended to the project sponsors. This project gives each child an opportunity for a good night’s sleep, which is essential to their well being.
Eight families from the Housing Authority benefited from the project.
