FRISCO, Colo. (AP) - Housing in Summit County has become so expensive even the housing executive director candidate had to turn down the job to the high costs.

The Summit Daily reports (https://bit.ly/2psfjDX ) the Summit Combined Housing Authority board made the announcement at their Wednesday meeting. The countywide housing authority oversees affordable housing programs. It has been without an executive director for seven months.

Officials say with the search for a new director restarting, some programs such as loan assistance for town employees may need to be scaled back or transferred. They expect programs that serve the local workforce such housing eligibility applications will not be affected.

The former director resigned last October after claiming she was discriminated against. Interim Director Nicole Bleriot says the programs could return once the agency gets more staffing.
