SHAMOKIN — Attorney Frank Garrigan clarified the city’s Housing Authority’s role in Madison Court Apartments amidst criticism from the public.

The solicitor of the authority told the gallery at Thursday’s board meeting that the apartment building is controlled by Madison Court 1 LP, “99%” of which is owned by Fulton Bank and the other part by the Greater Shamokin Area Housing Development Corporation.
