Letter: Eagle County Housing Authority a swell idea

Bill Kiker
Beaver Creek, CO Colorado

I see a report in the Vail Daily today that reports on the Eagle County Commissioners wanting to establish a county housing authority. I believe that would be a good idea! Just think the county and all the taxing districts could raise taxes enough to force home owners into foreclosures, the county could foreclose on these, put them into the housing authority, and then they could be used as affordable housing!

Of course as this happens they would need to raise taxes even more on the remaining owners, in time perhaps the county housing authority could become the largest owner of housing in the county! Problem of affordable housing solved!

According to the report today it appears that we are far along in heading into this.
