Terre Haute Housing Authority approves raises

TERRE HAUTE — The Terre Haute Housing Authority board of directors voted Monday night to approve pay increases for the authority’s approximately 55 employees.

The board, whose members are appointed by the mayor, approved raises not to exceed 2.5 percent overall. Performance evaluations are under way, and some employees will receive more and some less than 2.5 percent, said Jeff Stewart, executive director of the Housing Authority. The board also approved a $200 Christmas bonus for the authority’s workers.

Last year, Housing Authority employees raises averaged 2 percent.

The Terre Haute Housing Authority oversees housing for approximately 2,000 low-income families in the city. It is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Terre Haute City employees, with the exception of department heads and elected officials, will also receive pay increases of 2.5 percent next year.

n The Housing Authority board also heard an update on the Warren Village project, a planned new facility designed to house current residents of Deming Center, a Housing Authority-managed apartment building downtown at Sixth and Cherry streets.

Warren Village will be in the former Warren School on North 25th Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues. Two new wings are being added to the former school building. When completed, the building will have approximately 109 residential units. There are 80 parking places planned for the building, Stewart said.

Meanwhile, the Housing Authority will soon be seeking “requests for proposal” from contractors or others interested in the existing Deming Center building. Those proposals should be ready for review by the Housing Authority board after the first of the year, Stewart said.
