HUD Housing in Thebes, IL closing

CAT Tracks Editor's Note:

$648,733.11 to repair 10 vacant units.

Do the math:

That's $64,873.31 per unit.

Guess they were going to get their building materials from the same folks that charged the Pentagon $400 for hammers and $200 for toilet seats back in the day.

This is the same over-pricing that they used to justify shutting the Cairo Public Housing Complexes down.

It's all a sham and a shame.
