Albany - Albany leaders hope to move hurricane evacuees into old military housing in just over a month.
The pastor of the church that owns many of the units in Boyette Village, says utility repairs on the homes will likely start next week.
The cost of getting more than 115 units in Boyette Village ready for evacuees is now more than $1 million. Greater Second Mount Olive Baptist church owns the units. Pastor Lorenzo Heard has been working with Albany leaders to make the needed repairs to the units so evacuees can move in as soon as possible.
"We intend to start doing repairs as early as Monday of next week," says Heard.
"They're putting in the new water line and installing a gas line and electrical line," he says.
Heard says it will take a few weeks to finish the utility work and clean up the units.
FEMA will likely reimburse the city for repairs, and Mayor Willie Adams says Brooks Furniture is helping fill the empty units.
"Mr. Bob Brooks and his organization has offered to furnish these units as need and to delay any payments on furniture until we hear from FEMA," says Mayor Adams.
The city staff has moved two families into its transitional housing. And the Albany Housing Authority is taking applications for 25 of its units.
