The New York Housing Authority’s general manager Michael Kelly is expected to resign Monday, making him the third NYCHA official to lose their job over the lead paint scandal.

Vito Mustaciuolo, currently a deputy commissioner at the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, will take over as acting general manager, the New York Daily News reported.

In November, the city’s Department of Investigations published a report which found that for years NYCHA failed to inspect thousands of apartments for lead paint but falsely claimed that it had. Following the report, top NYCHA officials Brian Clark and Jay Krantz stepped down.

NYCHA chair Shola Olatoye has also faced pressure to resign. In November, Mayor Bill de Blasio appointed a new compliance officer to the agency. The Real Deal recently broke down how NYCHA is struggling amid a lack of funding and an increasingly hostile federal government. [NYDN]Konrad Putzier
