Morning Round-up: Chattanooga Housing Authority Revisits Evictions, Airport Adds Video Stream Display

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) Chattanooga public housing residents who fail to meet federal housing program requirements may no longer face eviction. The Housing Authority meets this afternoon to consider reversing its decision to evict residents who don’t meet requirements of the Upward Mobility program. That program requires residents to work, volunteer or attend school at least 30 hours a week. Residents who don’t meet requirements will be moved to different sites.

Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam proposes new spending on Tennessee roads, TennCare and schools. A budget amendment calls for an additional $12-million to be added to the state’s highway fund and $9-million to pay for growth in school enrollment.

The Chattanooga Airport unveils an innovative streaming video display later today. The enhancement will stream footage from cameras inside the Tennessee Aquarium.
