Jergens Estates repairs set

Dollars from the Washington County Community Development Block Grant fund will be used to renovate the John Jergens Estates in Forest Lake.

Funds from the 2012 grant of $115,356 will be added to 2011 funds of $85,328 to replace water heaters, furnaces and air-conditioning units, and to renovate the original kitchens and bathrooms in the 30-unit senior apartment complex. The Washington County Board of Commissioners approved the expenditures of the federal grant funds on Tuesday, Sept. 4.

The majority of residents in the apartment complex have very low or low incomes below 80 percent of the area median income.
