   The EHDA Board of Commissioners are expected to learn more about the new computer lab at their next regularly scheduled meeting, 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27, in the EHDA Board Room, 910 Pine Ridge Circle, Elizabethton.
   The executive director, in a report to the board, complimented the EHDA maintenance department for their "outstanding work" on repairs, move-ins, move-outs and work orders.
