Boozhoo! My name is Scott Desmoulin and I am the Longlake #58 housing manager/band member. I have been employed with Long Lake #58 First Nation as a housing manager for the past 2 and a half years. I am finding it challenging, but sometimes find it rewarding as well knowing we are headed in a positive direction.
As a housing manager there are many responsibilities. We have Dionne Legarde as our full time maintenance worker. We have Joe Towegishig as our part time Labour worker. There is also housing committee that makes recommendations to Chief and Council as to who gets ratified for a home.
There are 122 homes within Long Lake #58 First Nation that we maintain, collect mortgage fees and maintenance fees that allows us to up keep the homes as best as we can. Therefore, these homes can stay maintained and well taken care of to work towards new homes being built for our younger generation.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to come in and see me or to call the band office at (807) 876-2292 ext. 229.
