Some of the things the people have complained about. Taylor continued, were pertaining to things that happened two or three years ago.

Tenants have until the 10th day of the month to pay rent without late charges. If the rent is not paid by the 10th. the penalty then starts from the second day of the month and "they forfeit that grace period," Taylor said. Dr. Finney inquired about cutting grass and then billing thej tenants. Taylor replied that it is a written policy that if the tenant does not cut the grass, the housing authority will cut the grass for them and then charge for it. Taylor said this has not been necessary, however, since he has been serving as executive director (since November, 1964.) He said tenants have been cutting their own grass in an acceptable manner. When asked about over-income "pnants in thij housing project. Taylor said there were not any over-income tenants according to the records at the housing authority. "On this over-income business, there is no way we can go other than the information a tenant gives us. We have certain deductions we can make. This determines the person's net income and this is what we base the rental on." Taylor said that two people making a net income of $2,5/30 can move into a housing project. Their combined incomes can go up to as much as 53,125 j after they are renting in thej project. "These are the approved figures from the Public Housins Administration.
