Montville - The maximum income for an individual to be allowed to live in elderly housing has been lowered to $45,100, a $400 decrease from last year's limit.
The maximum allowable income for a couple is now $51,550.
The limits for state-assisted elderly housing are set by Connecticut rather than the Town of Montville, and the limit is kept at 80 percent of the median income in the area and is readjusted annually.
Carol Lathrop, executive director of Freedom Village Elderly Housing in Oakdale, said she now has to begin the yearly process of recertifying around 80 tenants.
She said that anyone whose income is now above the established limit will no longer be allowed to live in elderly housing, but that she rarely runs into that issue.
