Repair work stalls on crumbling Shiprock homes


FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - Money set aside to repair crumbling homes in a development in Shiprock may be used for other projects if the funding doesn't get used soon.

The Farmington Daily Times reports that only about half the houses in the 90-home development were finished or close to being completed.

Many have been damaged by weather and vandalism.

About a year ago, the Navajo Housing Authority set aside $18 million to fix the homes.

But the authority may pull that repair money if the money isn't used soon.

The money would be re-allocated to other housing authority projects.

The company has only a year left to use the repair money.

The authority already is threatening to shift the money to a youth center in Dilkon, Ariz.
