Sandusky housing scandal investigation continues

Sandusky officials said a criminal investigation into shoddy home repairs is ongoing, but they know nothing about the progress.

The scandal could top $3 million in losses for the city.

The Office of Inspector General is still analyzing data from the city’s housing scandal, which ran from 2004 to 2006.

Almost 50 homes in the city qualified for home repairs through federal grants, but in the end the homeowners fell victim to malfeasance.

City-approved contractors worked on the houses, but in most cases they did more harm than good. 

The homes affected in 2004 and 2005 have since been repaired, while fixes to residences ruined in 2006 are almost complete, city commissioner Dave Waddington said.

City commissioners said they're still hoping to recoup some of the funds through insurance claims.
