A note from the Director:
Fall is upon us and the Port Huron Housing Commission celebrated National Housing Month in October.  What a great month it was to celebrate, the weather was great, the trees have turned color and Port Huron Housing employees are preparing for winter.
    Fall also means housing inspections and preventative maintenance will take place in all apartments very soon to further prepare for the winter months.
    As the holidays approach, please remember to practice safety drills with your children, use safe lighting for decorations and to call maintenance with any issues that you might be having to ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday season.

- James A. Dewey, Executive Director
