Data Requests Delay Carthage Housing Request

Carthage, IL – Carthage Mayor James Nightingale says repeated requests for more information have delayed the city's application for HUD apartments. The city has requested a single-story complex for senior citizens. The apartments would be built on a donated lot near city hall, which would place them near medical care and shopping. Nightingale says the city asked for the complex because a recent community survey showed the need for more appropriate housing for the elderly.
