It is frustrating to see how poorly the Greater Sudbury Housing Corp. looks after their (our) rental properties.
I understand they have hundreds of such rental properties in their care within the region.
I walk by three of these vacant homes every morning on my walk. Most have been sitting there vacant/empty for many months. It’s so poor, so expensive to the taxpayer.
I am certain they can offer all kinds of excuses why these remain empty as such.
I think I know the reason — government bureaucracy at its best. So poor.
We’ve owned numerous rentals all of our lives, and I cannot recall once in 30 years where we had an empty unit for more than a week. We worked and made certain of that.
Some of these have been empty for the better part of a year. It’s such a tax burden on the taxpayer.
I trust that other various city departments operate more frugally than this. Our taxes are high enough as it is.
