MaineHousing board members discuss future

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine Housing Authority board members say they'll continue scrutinizing the housing agency's operations and finances following a federal audit that found it failed to provide adequate oversight for its Section 8 program.

Chairman Peter Anastos and fellow board members Bruce Poliquin and Lincoln Merrill held a news conference in Augusta on Wednesday to discuss the audit and the agency.

Following the conference, Poliquin said the board has already approved a separate audit to look at $7 million in expenditures on computer systems at the agency.

The audit by the U.S. Housing and Urban Development's inspector general found that 53 of 61 Section 8 housing units that were inspected did not meet federal standards, and concluded that MaineHousing had inadequate oversight of third parties that oversaw the properties.
