The Department of Housing and Community Development, the Baltimore City agency, is governed by the mayor of Baltimore City, and the commissioner is hired by the mayor and confirmed by the Baltimore City Council. Although, the mayor appoints the commissioner, the mayor does not have the authority to terminate the executive director/secretary of HABC. The Housing Authority of Baltimore City Commissioners have been shielded from scrutiny due to the misunderstanding of City Council, neighborhood leaders, activists and city residents. As one may review the current commissioners, one will find that the terms of these commissioners are over extended. Two years have come and gone.
