Turner requested the city to provide a detailed plan on how it plans to “address the mismanagement” of HUD funds.
“Since HUD has raised its concerns with my office, I must ensure that the city of Dayton is taking accurate steps to protect all HOME funds,” his letter states.

Last week, Dayton City Manager Shelley Dickstein issued a statement saying HUD determined that two of the city’s 2012 HOME projects, which were contracted with developers in 2014, did not meet the contract deadline date, though the city commission approved the contracts before the commitment deadline.
She said the city was not required to repay funds and the two projects were completed successfully.
At last week’s commission meeting, Dickstein said HUD has suspended the two-year commitment deadline requirement for its HOME program for 2016 to 2019 because the agency recognized the challenges it posed.
We have reached out to the city today and will update this story when we get a response.
