Construction Work on the Phoenix House More Than Halfway Done

The Phoenix House construction project is moving along.

Bob Alloy from Territorial Engineering appeared before the Knox Board of Works members to present a pay application for the construction done. The amount of $82,269 was approved for Chester Construction.

Alloy said about 65 percent of the construction is done. There is $140,000 left to complete the project.

The construction project began in mid-January with site preparations beginning in December. The Phoenix House suffered flooding and grant money was sought by K-IRPC to aid in the construction project. The garage is being expanded to include a storage area, a group meeting room, a library and computer area.
