Congressman Brian Higgins is calling on the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to investigate the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority. Higgins says the authority is grossly mismanaged.
Congressman Brian Higgins says it's time to act in Buffalo's Commodore Perry public housing neighborhood. He recommends renovating a dozen long-vacant buildings and reopening them as affordable housing. But neighbors are skeptical and made that known during Higgins' Monday morning news conference.
Police agencies, both local and federal, conducted raids Wednesday morning at the Commodore Perry Homes in Buffalo. Several arrests were made and a large quantity of crack cocaine and several guns were confiscated.
