Five properties in town will receive funding for home repairs thanks to Spencer’s new Substandard Housing Rehabilitation Program.
The Spencer City Council last week approved 5-0 a resolution authorizing the acceptance of bids from contractors for work on the five properties.
The combined amount awarded for the five bids is $122,475. Under the program, the city will pay $102,041 and the residents will pay $20,434.
Repairs on the properties will include new windows, HVAC systems updates and insulation.
L&J Dream Builders was awarded three of the projects with cost totals of $28,745, $23,065 and $16,500.
Mills Construction was awarded two of the projects with cost totals of $30,350 and $23,815.
