This was revealed today when State Auditor Thomas J. Buckley, made public a report of an an- ual audit of the Authority's accounts. Previous Maximum Since the 65 frame dwellings ere built in 1952 at a cost of 909,000, the State Housing Board as contributed Ihe maximum sub- idy of $22,750 each year except ne, to make up the difference Between the amount paid in rent by the tenants and the operating nd debt service costs. The one xception was in 1956 when the ubsidy was reduced to $18,004.95. But the auditor's report says 'The actual Commonwealth con- ribution to be received by the Authority during the fiscal year ncling June 30, 1963, is only $19,25 as the State Housing Board indicated that there will be a contribution reduction of $2,80( rom the maximum." It notec hat the Authority's quarterly report had reflected the maximum ubsidy and suggested that this >e adjusted to slx)w the actual imount to be paid. On the 40-year $909,000 bond is iiie floated to finance the project, he report notes, $751,000 is still jwed, to be paid off in installments over the next 30 years The interest charges in the remaining 30 years of the debt will amount to $281,576.15, bringing the total amount to be paid in debt service over that period to $1,032,576.25. The report shows that In the period from July 1, 1962 to May 31, 1963, the Authority received $34,130 in rent and miscellaneous income of $1,568.64 for a total Dr. Yelle's office will be closed of $35,704.64, while operating ex until Aug. 19.—adv.
