Some kind of fire at Fox Hills

Update:

Note to self: Don’t post all things that you hear on the police radio. 99.5% of the time they’re false alarms and just boring.

Here’s what Peter Cunningham had to say last night as he checked the status of his constituents:
“Just returned from Fox Hill. No Fire.
Smoke alarm in north stairwell went off in error (twice), and that condition has now been stabilized by fire department. Thanks, Peter”

11:18pm:
I caught this sort of 1/2 way through, and I’m on my way out to walk my dog who’s about to amputate my arm because he’s eager to go out (for the fourth time today).

Here’s what I hear:

Fire at Fox Hills (used to be 100% senior building, now just a “building”) and there are multiple floors that the HFD are “investigating”. The Dispatcher is asking “any victims?”.
Not sure what the deal is, but Oscar will eat the internet wires in about 15 seconds if I don’t get the heck out of here.

Listen to the live police scanner and report back if anything significant occurs. I doubt it.

Foster, I wish I could tell you how these people manage their waiting lists. I know a local resident who waited for years and finally got an apartment there a few months before she died (a real shame). Maybe Councilman Cunningham is up on the latest on this or maybe Perry Belfiore who is on the HHA Board can tell.

Thanks Krew. That’s makes sense. Do you think that’s what is happening or do you think they have opened it up to anyone off the HHA list. I would think that with a mission of senior or handicapped, it would still require services or criteria related to those special needs.

Do the kids take over the lease if the parent passes away?

Before you know it….no more Senior Building. 😡

I think Fox Hill is owned by the Hoboken Housing Authority, meaning they are a public housing project overseen by HUD. I think their “mission” (not sure if that’s what they call it) is to house senior citizens AND handicapped people of any age. I’m not sure if there’s an income ceiling to be considered. Also, many grandparents are the guardians of young children for a variety of reasons, i.e. parents are dead, inprisoned, or unfit. I know there are minor children living there with their grandparents and disabled adult children who live with their parents.
