NORFOLK - In response to complaints about mold in privately run military housing from residents to federal lawmakers, Lincoln Military Housing representatives said they will make changes.

~snip~

Residents began by describing their problems with water damage, mold and service. They brought photos and paperwork. One woman drove from Charlotte, N.C., to talk about the problems she had for the five years she lived in military housing in Virginia. She moved in October.

Warner often had to raise his hands to quell the roar of residents as complaints grew to include Lincoln personnel and contractors' behavior. The one-hour meeting stretched to nearly two.

~snip~

Jeff Franzen and Jarl Bliss of Lincoln said they will change contractors, create a new customer service officer position and find a resident family housing advocate.


unhappycamper comment: Privatization is the problem, as well as all the big $$$$$$$ toys the DoD is buying.

Military communities are showing the same signs of neglect as the rest of the US.

1. Yup. Remember: Virtually the ENTIRE Department of Energy is 'privatized,' too.

It has been from the get-go. (... and at least ONE of those contractors 'cooks the books' for sure.)

The abomination of privatization is clear, at least, to me.
