The property at 333 Mill St., will be managed by Latter & Blum Property Management.
Residents were informed in the letter that they should take note of the following: continue to make their monthly rental payments at the management office at the property; make all maintenance requests the same way they have in the past; and any other property requests should be directed to Latter & Blum’s Property Management office.
The letter to residents of the facility was signed by Ben Taylor, executive director of the Lake Charles Housing Authority.
In the letter, Taylor informed residents that "The Lake Charles Housing Authority is not the owner of the property, nor do we exercise any control over the housing. Thus, once the transition is made, we will be unable to assist or support residents at Chateau du Lac. We will strive to make this transition as seamless as possible and to ensure that Latter & Blum has sufficient information to support its residents."
The <em>American Press</em> attempted to reach Taylor but he was out of his office and unavailable for comment.
A representative of Chateu du Lac, reached Friday afternoon, did not want to comment on the change in property management although she confirmed an agent of Latter & Blum had been at the property that day assisting in the transition.
Northa Linzer, a regional manager for Latter & Blum, was not available for comment.
