It appears the federal government is investigating a housing discrimination complaint in Orange County.
The complaint was filed by Robert Campbell, a Rogers Road-area resident and outspoken opponent of the county's solid waste operations at the nearby landfill. The complaint was filed against the County and Town of Chapel Hill.
A letter about the complaint was in the publicly available correspondence of County Manager Laura Blackmon. It's dated June 17, and says only that the Department of Housing and Urban Development hasn't completed its investigation within 100 days of the filing of the complaint.
There are a series of checkboxes for various reasons, and there's an 'x' next to "conduct more investigation because the information gathered so far shows a need for more investigation and analysis."
The letter also says the investigation should be finished in December, but it doesn't spell out what HUD is investigating.
Campbell and other area residents have also filed a complaint about the county's solid waste operations with the Environmental Protection Agency.
