FORT HOOD — The town hall meeting held Tuesday started out positively: Fort Hood leaders spoke about the actions taken to address housing problems since the last town hall in February.

Unit chains of command had inspected 100% of the living quarters of their troops in the post’s more than 6,800 homes to document any problems needing to be addressed. The homes are mostly owned and operated by Australian firm Lend Lease, which hired an additional 26 maintenance personnel to address the backlog of repair requests. The post Directorate of Public Works had hired seven additional quality assurance inspectors, and they were busy conducting thousands of checks. | 254-501-7554
