The Knox Board of Public Works approved the last pay applications for the Phoenix House project.

Van Janovic from Territorial Engineering informed the board that the project has fallen within budget. Approximately $4,800 will be left over from the project.

A $26,240 pay application was approved for Chester Construction which will be the last payment besides the retainer of about $15,000. Another $29,747 was approved for Mark Milo Enterprises for work done on the parking lot.

Janovic stated that the construction project at the Phoenix House is very well done. He’s been through the area and said the construction looks very nice. The garage was expanded to include a storage area, a group meeting room, a library and computer area. A parking lot was also expanded and updated.

The project should be complete next week.

The retainer money will be taken care of by the board during their next meeting.

The Phoenix House is a transitional home and is a shelter for abuse victims and their families. Since being established, the Phoenix House has provided care and compassionate support to dozens of abuse victims and families.
