ONEONTA – RSS didn’t get the state funding for its controversial Riverside Apartments, but that doesn’t mean it’s giving up.

The state Office of Homes & Community Renewal didn’t approve the 64-unit complex for low-income housing, but Altamont-based Rehabilitation Support Services still plans to move forward, said Ed Butz, RSS managing director.

“There are many more applications than there is funding available,” he said. “It’s not un-typical. We plan to meet with HCR and get more advisement, then submit for the next round.”

In the meantime, residents of the Sixth Ward Neighbors United are breathing a sigh of relief.
