Those water stains on the ceiling may soon be gone. The Upton Housing Authority has received a $110,000 grant from the state Department of Housing and Community Development to repair the roofs of its buildings, which were leaking and leading to water damage.
Three of the 40 units that house elderly and handicapped residents suffered damage, said Barbara Marsden, executive director of the authority, along with non-residential space.
The buildings were constructed in 1970, she said, and are in need of further repairs.
