FAIRFIELD — A federal privacy protection requirement means the rent for the Fairfield Housing Authority office on Jefferson Street will cost $300 more a month, a city staff report says.
Secure file areas the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires will mean expanding the city housing authority office into an adjacent 415-square-foot space and increasing the rent to $2,973 a month, the report notes.
A new office lease with Honeychurch and Finkas is proposed.
The city housing authority leases 2,673 square feet of office space and signed a lease with Honeychurch and Finkas in March 2013. The proposed new lease would become effective Sept. 1.
Messages left Friday with public affairs officials at regional offices in San Francisco and Denver for the federal Housing and Urban Development agency about the secure file area requirement were not returned.
Housing authority administrative fees from HUD pay for costs of the lease for the Fairfield Housing Authority.
The City Council takes up the lease when it meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the council chamber at 1000 Webster St.
