The former CEO of the Atlanta Housing Authority – Renee Glover – has written a letter to Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and members of the Atlanta City Council – seeking to open lines of communication with the new administration.
Glover’s letter also was an attempt to make the new mayor “aware of my record at AHA and know that the claims made against me by former Mayor Kasim Reed are false and defamatory.”
The city of Atlanta is stepping back from a 2017 lawsuit against its former housing authority CEO, the Integral Group and its boss, a longtime and prominent city contractor who’s built mixed-income developments for the authority.
“The city has dismissed, without prejudice, its lawsuit against Integral Development and related corporate entities and individuals,” a city spokesperson confirmed in a text Thursday evening.
The Atlanta Housing Authority proposes no new initiatives in the first forward-looking report it has prepared for HUD since former CEO Renee Glover left last year following a public two-year dispute with Mayor Kasim Reed.
The report does say AHA intends to provide the Falcons with land near the new stadium for a surface parking lot. This site is part of the now-demolished housing project, Herndon Homes.
