Concerned about cost of housing authority ruling

I read with much interest the report about the Northampton Housing Authority (“Court rules against housing authority,” May 15).

What I find lacking is the information on the dollar amount it is going to cost to pay Michael Owens for back pay, benefits and lawyer expense to clear up this mess. Also where is this money going to come from?

The taxpayers of Northampton are consistently being called on to pay more taxes for other services, so I sincerely hope Cara Clifford, the executive director, and the board are brought to task for this additional expense.
