Attorney's memo outlines possible challenges to public housing

GALVESTON — Even as city officials attempt to appease state and federal authorities and restart the flow of federal disaster funds meant for housing and infrastructure projects, they are assessing ways to challenge the construction of hundreds of houses meant for low- and middle-income people on the island.

In a document obtained by The Daily News, the city is advised on ways it could challenge the locations of 388 scattered site housing units planned to someday be built on the island. Such a challenge would be based on an argument that the poor would benefit more if more of the houses were built on the mainland of Galveston County.
