League of Women Voters of Volusia County complete Public Housing Resident Council Elections
DBHA supports and encourages its Local Resident Council's involvement in creating a positive living environment for residents. Over the last several months the League of Women Voters of Volusia County have acted as the independent third party to oversee the elections and recall procedures for five resident council boards. These boards included: Windsor Apartments, Maley Apartments, Palmetto Park Apartments, Caroline Village Apartments and Northwood/Walnut Oak Apartments. The initial process began August 7, 2019 with marketing/announcements to the communities and concluded with an induction ceremony on September 23, 2019 for the Windsor and Maley Communities and an induction ceremony for the Family Sites on November 7, 2019. We are extremely excited about the newly elected Resident Council officers and we look forward to their leadership within their communities.
