Dear Section 8 Landlord:

Dear Section 8 Landlord:

Last year, in order to be in compliance with Erie Ordinance No. 951.12, the Housing Authority started requiring that all landlords participating with the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program be responsible for paying the garbage fees. Additionally, as part of the annual contract renewal process, we require that all participating landlords be current with their garbage bills.

We are now requesting that you provide our office with proof of payment for the past three (3) quarters’ garbage bills, ending March 31, 2015.  If this proof is received in our Section 8 Office by May 27, 2015, we will process a special Housing Assistance Payment retroactive to when you started paying the garbage fee.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please feel free to contact the Section 8 Office at 456-2028.


John E. Horan, HACE Executive Director and Secretary
