ABOUT

The Board of Commissioners of the Housing Authority of the City of Americus are appointed by the Mayor of the City of Americus, GA.  Each commissioner, except the resident commissioner, is appointed to serve a five year term or to complete the term of the commissioner they are replacing.  Their terms are staggered so that one commissioner's term is set to expire each year on July 24th.  A commissioner can be reappointed for as many terms as the Mayor may desire. 

 

Our resident commissioner is also appointed by the Mayor of the City of Americus, GA., and that person is appointed to serve for a one year term.  The resident commissioner's term is set to expire July 24th of each year.  If the resident commissioner should lose their housing assistance from the Housing Authority, they would then be replaced.
