The power structure within the local housing authority may soon get turned upside down, if Aspen City Council gets buy-in from its Pitkin County counterparts.
The biggest move would be to change the Aspen-Pitkin County Housing Authority board of directors from a citizen committee to one with elected officials on it. They would be responsible for making big policy decisions on the affordable housing program.
"The board would get a lot more powerful," said Councilman Adam Frisch on Tuesday at an annual retreat with his colleagues and city department heads.
