A frequent complaint heard from the previous executive director of Bliss Towers was there wasn't enough money to maintain the building properly. Now, with the new executive director of the Hudson Housing Authority (HHA) in place, it's been revealed that the total of $42,490.90 is owed in rent and fees, and the tenants in 74 of the 129 units--more than half--are in arrears. At a meeting of the HHA Board of Commissioners on Wednesday, it was also revealed that the two people arrested for running a child pornography studio in their apartment in the low-rise building (one of whom has since been convicted) owed $2,000 in rent and kept a big fishing boat parked on the property, in violation of their lease. Rosa Acheson has the story in today's Register-Star: "Bliss Towers pursues evictions."
