ALEXANDER COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - Two more housing complexes in Alexander County are closing, Mary Alice Meadows and Sunset Terrace.
A time frame for the closings is not yet known.
In a statement to KFVS 12, U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth calls the Department of Housing and Urban Development's decision to close two public housing developments in Thebes, yet another move that hurts the very families the President promised not to leave behind.
One resident who moved to a complex in Thebes after being forced out of the Elmwood complex in Cairo.
Earlene Lyons says she's worried about not knowing where she and her grandson will have to go next.
"It was a shock because to me they're lying when you told me this is a permanent spot," said Lyons. That's got electric, gas, water, everything in one thing, one bill, it's not gonna happen you can't hardly find those places."
On top of that Lyons says she also worries how her grandson, who has autism, will adjust to a new place. She moved into Sunset Terrace in August, and she says she's been given a year to find somewhere else to live.
