Some social housing units in the Kenora District are getting a facelift

The Services Board has approved an extra 30 thousand dollars in funding to carry out the upgrades.

Director of Finance and Asset Management Corrine Owen says they originally set aside 310-thousand  dollars for capital work, but stresses more was needed to ensure tenant safety.

Aamikkowish Non Profit Housing in Kenora will get 15 thousand dollars to replace a failed furnace and remove water damaged/mouldy drywall.

Kenora Non Profit Housing is also getting 90 thousand dollars for various upgrades.
