The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has voided the passing score Eureka Garden received in its last HUD inspection.
HUD Field Office Director Alesia Scott-Ford said the move is extremely rare. It came after a meeting Wednesday morning with Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry and other city leaders.
Scott-Ford said HUD feels that the owner of the complex, Rev. Richard Hamlet with the Global Ministries Foundation, "has not been aggressive enough with his repairs." Hamlet "has not had enough maintenance crews out at the property," she said.
