The Lee County Housing Authority met Tuesday to go over the budget for the new year.

The budget is set around $480,000.

Lee County officials will soon start using funds to replace all the windows in one of their apartment buildings.

"It's Academy Homes. It's right off 5th Avenue in Academy and we'll be replacing the windows there with a contract of about $46,000," said Dan McCarthy, Executive Director for the Lee County Housing Authority.

McCarthy says they are also continuing to work on their rental assistance program.
