By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:53AM / Friday, June 21, 2019

And now, the city's budget is some $2.1 million over in the snow and ice line and will have to transfer money from other places to cover it.   While the issue with the trucks can't be attributed to all of that overage, Mazzeo said it could have been reduced a bit if those trucks were repaired right then and there.    "If I heard that, I would say let's

Roughly 20 percent of all mortgage applicants will choose an FHA loan because it makes total economic sense to do so. And the older you are, the more important having an FHA approved dwelling becomes.   To many, that may appear to contradict your understanding of the FHA loan market. Most believe it is a program to assist younger folks, who need a hand to purchase their first home. You wouldn't be far wrong from a historical perspective, but times have changed.   The FHA loan was originally designed during the Depression years to help home buyers, (usually first-time
