Not sure if this has been discussed before. What is the vacant housing used for. Going to be used for. Or?

I think the Gov't leased it back to LB and it is used for employee housing like it was before.

LB = LimeTree Bay Terminals. It is the former HOVENSA refinery in the south shore.

The area is called Cottage. They are housing employees and contractors there. They are three bedroom, two bath homes with good size kitchen/dining room, living room, large insulated attics (lots of storage up there), central air, storage shed, patio, and most have a good size yard. Free Dish Network and internet. I'd live there if I could!

We drove by the other day and I saw all those houses. Vacant for so long. Just glad to see they are being used.

Hovensa employees also got tuition. Or part tuition. Good deal for the employee s

Lime Tree Bay is in the process of readying ten more houses in Cottage. They are in an area that they originally said they would not use due to the amount of work required. And here they are now bringing them back to life. They are expected to be done by the end of this month.

This will account for almost every house in Cottage. Not bad! (tu)

And the govt is collecting rent. Wonder if it shows up in the general fund or just "POOF" disappears?
