With the spring rains in April, we here at Carroll County Housing Authority (CCHA) are planning on several projects this year, and a few additional projects to complete in the following year. 

In 2024, we are planning to complete the following Capital Projects:  (a)  Seal coat and stripe all CCHA parking lots; (b) installation of new Mest Manor emergency exit doors, as well as, interior maintenance door; and (c) purchase of new Mest Manor Community Room furniture.  In addition, we will also be purchasing new outdoor signage for all three housing sites, and planting new trees on the Carroll Apartments site. 

Looking into the future, the following capital improvements are being planned for 2025:  (a) New roof for the Mest Manor building; (b) painting of the interior areas of Mest Manor; and (c) new concrete back patios for the Maple Lane units. 

The CCHA staff continues to plan and budget for the many improvements that make living in Savanna safe and affordable.  Please watch for future updates as we enter the summer months.  We strive, and remain committed to providing housing that everyone can be proud of.

JDLF is Coming to CCHA

Jo Daviess Local Foods (JDLF) is an online farmers’ market that started in 2018 with just seven producers.  Since then, they have grown to include nearly forty producers, depending on the time of year.  JDLF helps these producers work together to meet the growing demand for local food.

JDLF recently received a grant through IL-EATS that enabled them to expand the foods they provide to include additional pantries in different counties.  We are delighted to announce, JDLF has generously selected our Mest Manor Food Pantry here at Carroll County Housing Authority as a recipient of their monthly food deliveries.    

Thus, we are extremely excited for all our CCHA residents, as they can look forward to receiving a variety of delicious locally home grown food in the near future.  Watch for a flyer to announce the date/time of our first food delivery at our Mest Manor Food Pantry. 

Currently, JDLF is offering pork, beef and chicken from Arnold’s Farm, yogurt and sour cream from Dairyland Farms, corn meal (with recipe) from Hazzard Free Grains, eggs from various farms, and some additional items.  As the seasons progress, they will offer a variety of fresh produce.
