Community group holds public housing meeting

Updated: Tuesday, August 19 2014, 10:39 AM EDT

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio-- A community group in Steubenville believes changes in public housing will prompt a turnaround for the city of Steubenville.
Laura Sirilla, the president of the Steubenville hilltop community development corporation, says a change or the enforcement of existing policy is needed in the city, specifically in the hilltops.
Sirilla says the group is dedicated to change and she believes that change will start with the rental properties, where tenants receive assistance.
To tackle the issue head on, Sirilla has invited a representative of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to their meeting Thursday night.
"It's a chance for us to communicate the issues we are seeing on the hilltops and it's a chance for them to communicate to us who to contact,  what info is important and how we can work together to get real results and improve things." Sirilla says.
Ray Keyser, who is an acting field office director, is expected to attend the meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. at Trinity East.
