Like public housing? Or something different like property management, HOA's.

I guess I do not have much experience with Housing Authorities.

I did a bunch of units for a housing authority. Just needed insurance basically. I knew one of the managers and got in that way. It was actually good money while it lasted.

So what is it essentially a property management? Or something else?

We are doing 5 NC homes right now. There were pretty strict about providing License, WC and GL. They had us bid some of the rental housing recently.
They only pay once a month, invoices in on 15th, paid on 5th.

I worked for the Portland Housing Authority several years back and they had their own painters (Union) Worked for another guy in Georgia and we did a bunch of work in the housing projects in Atlanta and a Barretta 9mm was my requirement. LOL

Prevailing Wages in my county are 7.25 for a painter, in your county, up to $40! How are they considered Union scale wages?

Good point. I started to mention that and didnt. Portland Housing Authority was prevailing wage when I worked there in '99 and I'm sure it still is today.

PW differs by each state, not sure if it has to do with if the state is a "right to work" state or not. The only type of Housing Authority work I ever did was a couple of fire related insurance restoration jobs. Since they were part of the county we had to have a county employee do the final inspection for payment release. These places were basically trashed before the fire. Had an opportunity to go back to one 4 months after completion, and this job was a total gut and redo, and it was trashed again. Made me feel real good to see how my tax dollars were being spent.........
