The Aspen-Pitkin County Housing Authority turned down a local man's offer to donate thousands of dollars to nonprofits as a way to stay in his worker housing.
Lee Mulcahy told the housing authority last month he and his mother would give $20,000 to the Aspen Homeless Shelter, $10,000 to the Arlington Life Shelter in Texas, $20,000 to the Africa Water Wells charity in Texas and do 500 hours of community service at Habitat for Humanity.
In an executive session Wednesday, the board declined the offer, according to APCHA attorney Tom Smith. On Thursday, Smith sent a letter to Mulcahy's Denver-based attorney Norman Mueller informing him of the decision.
