All Islip Housing Authority Tenants
Site work and seasonal information
Seasonal work is underway…..winter bye-bye……
The HA recognizes many notices are sent about safety and issues related to tenants being frustrated with each other, varying issues, all the HA ultimately expects, as do your neighbors is for peace and harmony among tenants so the HA can focus on providing housing, even if we are all unique in our own ways, the things we/you can control our/your own actions, choices and how we respond, life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we react. Please note the HA does address lease violations, vigorously, however the process and procedures provided for such actions within the program rules and the State court system do cause unreasonable delays that the HA does not control.
These updates are provided so you are aware of the work the HA has planned to maintain and try to improve the facilities, as Director I never look at our facilities as subsidized housing, it is just housing and the goal is to make it as nice as possible. All people are different and we may not agree on everything with our neighbors and how things are operated, but we try to adjust and find the best possible results, even if imperfect. Ultimately the HA is trying to provide housing with limited resources and budgets spent over time responsibly to allow for long term viability of the property.
The HA will work to get these jobs done as fast as schedules, weather and conditions permit. Thank you to the Ockers tenants that sent in notes and cards recognizing the efforts and improvements. The words go a long way for employee morale!
