I am curious, who is this "David Lee" that the individual from Greenup, Ky is referring to? How could Mr. Epling be "in cahoots" with someone he doesn't even know?

It is too bad Jeremy Spears resigned.

I'll tell you who david lee is, he is a liar who lied to the city council in front of 11 tenants at last months council meeting saying there was no problems at grandveiw manor which is bull, and unfortunately david lee is on the board at the manor.
now if you were at the meeting like i was you would of notice all the eye contact among other things which shows them 2 being in cahoots, neither david lee or jimmy epling was gonna let us speak but thanks to randall peterman we did, as far as david lee wanting to hush us he don't want the truth to come out.
as far as jimmy epling goes, between him and whomever it is that walks his dog on the manor property, they let it crap on the manor property and the tenants are the ones who gets the blame for it, if he can't clean up his dogs crap what makes you think he can clean up the crap he creates as a city councilman, watch out catlettsburg, you'll be needing your wading boots soon thanks to jimmy epling

The truth that has been missed is the city council of Catlettsburg has no authority over the housing authority nor the Director of the facility. When the apparent spokesperson for the group of residents was asked have you followed procedure by making your complaint to the Board when you received no satisfaction from, the answer was, "No."

Councilman Epling's concern during the council meeting was that it not become a forum for accusations against someone not present. What did the residents present hope as an outcome? The city council voting to recommend the Director's dismissal? Would anyone consider that fair treatment by an organization that has no authority to act if in the same situation? I suspect anyone in the same situation would be grateful cooler heads prevailed.

The city council meeting was not the forum to address such concerns and get results. Councilman Epling did do some research before attending the meeting. He distributed information on the proper grievance procedure and contact information for HUD representatives if the residents were unsatisfied with the Board's response. Councilman Epling plans to attend the Manor's Board meeting next Thursday to observe the proceedings and determine how the Board addresses resident concerns.

Curious how someone from Greenup seems to know so much about Grandview Manor in Catlettsburg.

Since when is Jimmy Epling the mayors spokesperson? maybe the person isn't from Greenup.did you ever consider that? On here anything is possible.watch where you step as you come in Mr. Epling .your shoes might get dirty.

Curious how Councilman Epling is now thought to be acting as the spokesperson for the mayor. What has Councilman Epling done to be considered the self appointed spokesperson for the mayor?

It is very unlikely that the writer "anonymous" is from Greenup. The question should be asked why the writer feels the need to use Greenup and not Catlettsburg?

There was no doubt that you had to be a resident of the Manor or at least a recent resident because of what you knew and your interest.

There is no doubt either that this is a public forum and you are free to express your opinion just as I am. Since the discussion is no longer about the issues, there is no reason to continue on the conversation.

It appeared to me that the Mayor has no idea how to conduct a meeting.

no observer, if people like jimmy epling didn't take the meeting and handled it to where he was outta order to begin with then things wouldn't be at this point where they are.

Mr. Epling found the proper channels for residents to make complaints. The board of council has absolutely no say over the Manor. Why would you voice complaints to an entity that cannot correct the issues. Procedures need to be followed at every level. The mayor had no idea what was going on and to some credit Mr. Epling did have a great deal of information to share, but the mayor has had zero control over any meeting I have attended this year.

observer once again your point fails to be seen because it must be invisible, there is no point, the only imformation mr epling shared was the wrong phone numbers, if giving false imformation for something this simple that shows mr epling knows nothing, as far as the mayor not knowing that is another lie, she knows more than she's given credit, mr epling was told by both the mayor and randall peterman he was outta order, but no mr epling proceeded in running his mouth and kept breaking order, as i said he is not wanted at nor is he welcomed at the manor.

As far as Kelly Harper telling our mayor she can't be on our board of directors, because her daughter lives in our building , thats a crock of s--t. The lady named Kim that lives at forest heights housing project and sits on our board , has a member of her family living in our housing , also.Does that mean the board can't let her serve , too?Their rules don't count for some people.Kelly Harpers daughter has a lawsuit against the city , odd, huh?They lost sight of the issue at hand , To remove David Lee.Was he mad at our mayor , Go Pauline and Randall!!!!!!!!!!

agree with you tentant now kelly harper had no right to tell the mayor anything, he has no right to sit on the board with his daughther having a lawsuit against the city, think about it, if the mayor can't sit on the board because her daughter lives here then he shouldn't be on hte board because of his daughters lawsuit, he is no better than the mayor,he should be off the board along with david, and the one that her mom lives at housing also, what good for the goose is good for the gander GO PAULINE AND RANDALL GOOD LUCK TO YOU BOTH

tenant, both you and concerned are right, kim who lives up at forest heights has a kid and is on the board here, that is the same for our honorable mayor pauline hunt but yet shes not allowed to serve on the board, kelly harper you to tell her she couldn't serve on the board it being a conflict of interest because of her daughter living under this housing, first of all that is 2 faced and sec ondly with kim having kids and on the board she has no business being on the board, she should be the next petitioned off the board along with kelly harper

Clearly the residents at the Manor have alot of time on their hands. Back to my orginal point, the tenants should have done their research and appears that the issues would have been resolved. Instead they blame a councilmember for trying to get the information for the proper channels. It seems very likely that the residents just want to complain. I would challenge them to make phone calls to the state and get answers since they have a much higher understanding than does Catlettsburg City Council.

lisa epling, you and your hubby don't know crap, if he so much tried to help he wouldn't of gave false numbers to steer people away from the right organization being sought. by the way, have you,your hubby and son started cleaning up your dogs crap yet, and obviously you look down at people thinking your better, well lisa, got bad news for you, everyone is equal, rather you want to admit it, face it or whatever.
i am surprised at you lisa, your maidfen name is ramey, the real rameys were good,kind,loving and did not look down on others as if they were better than them, you have done the complete opposite because your married to a heartless coward and he's turned you to his way of thinking
