    MAYOR BLOOMBERG AND NYCHA CHAIRMAN RHEA ANNOUNCE ACTION PLAN TO ELIMINATE BACKLOG OF MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR REQUESTS IN PUBLIC HOUSING

    New York – January 31, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and New York City Housing Authority Chairman John Rhea today announced an aggressive plan with the goal of eliminating the backlog of 420,000 open repair work orders in NYCHA properties. Sustained underfunding by the Federal government has forced NYCHA to cut maintenance and repair staff, while at the same time, NYCHA properties that were constructed decades ago have suffered, as federal capital improvement and repair funding has also declined.
