In an effort to inform and educate the community we thought it the right time to question the effectiveness of the Teton County Housing Authority to date. They have owned land—purchased with taxpayer money—that they have not built housing on. Some parcels have gone unused for a decade or more. They have built housing that does not target low- or even mid-income families. And they have mismanaged funds. They can do better.
