Housing, dorm inspections coming next week

Master Sgt. Kenny Ketcham, an Air Force Lifecycle Management Center logistics superintendent, helps move furniture into his new home April 7. Ketcham and his family were part of the first wave of families to move into the privatized homes on Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The new development will include multiple playgrounds, a dog-friendly “bark” park, a community center with a fitness room, and a pool. The entire community is estimated to be completed by 2019.

At the request of Air Force Materiel Command, the 96th Test Wing Inspector General will conduct an inspection of Eglin housing and dorms beginning Nov. 13. 

This is part of a command-wide look at housing and not because of any negative indicators here, according to the IG team.

This checkup gives leadership the chance to evaluate the areas discovered at other bases before they could become an issue here. 

The inspection focuses on housing related medical concerns, security, work order history, educational initiatives to resolve complaints and communications between tenants and the installation hosts.   Leadership is committed to ensuring the quality of housing remains high and is pro-active in identifying any needs, according to the IG team. 

Housing and dorm residents can share any concerns before, during or after the inspection concludes in late November.  Residents can address concerns either on an attribution or non-attribution basis.  The IG will protect the identity of the reporter of any of the concerns. 

For more information, or to express any concerns, call Bill Garrick, 96th TW complaints director at (850) 882-5967 or DSN:  312-872-5967.
