Shelley Hartley has been appointed to the Ogema Housing Authority Board of Directors along with reappointments Garnet Eden, William Caird, Carol Peterson and Beatrice Struthers. Hartley is chairperson.
The Ogema Housing Authority is a community-based organization that provides daily management of 6 housing units constructed and operated under the terms of a federal provincial municipal cost sharing agreement.
"This local hands-on approach ensures that the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation responds effectively to the needs of each community," said Social Services Minister, June Draude as she paid tribute to the volunteers who manage the social housing projects in their community.
Saskatchewan has a network of 271 housing authorities and more than 1,400 volunteer members who assist with management of housing units throughout the province for seniors, low income families and persons with disabilities.
Persons interested in volunteering to serve on the board of directors for the Ogema Housing Authority are encouraged to contact the mayor of Ogema. A local nominating committee recommends board members.
Applications for accommodation are available from the manager of the Ogema Housing Authority.
