Erie Housing Authority Director John E. Horan thanked, earlier this month, the ten “Early Bird Winners” for the fourth quarter calendar year of 2014 who paid their rent before the fifth of the month. He also thanked the winners of years gone by.
The latest winners are:
Harbor Homes Annex
John E. Horan Garden Apartments
Lake City Dwellings
These on-time payers each won a $25 gift card to Erie County Farms or Wal-Mart.
“Thankfully, a good number of our tenants, now and through the years, have always shown, thrift, wisdom, and responsibility in paying, on time, their share for affordable public housing.
“We are giving special recognition to those present and past Early Bird Winners.”
“Due to the drastic reduction in funding to support the Housing Authority’s programs and services, it is imperative that rents be paid when they are due,” Horan said.
"These people are setting a wonderful example for everyone.'
