Flood damaged apartments set to re-open


The Medicine Hat Community Housing Society is finally putting people back into apartments damaged in last years flood. Officials were given an occupancy permit from the city for Luther Manor about three weeks ago and an inspection is scheduled to be completed today on Parkside Manor. There were 10 units in each building that were heavily damaged in the flood and Robin Miller says the reason it has taken so long to get them ready, was finding contractors to complete the repair work. While Parkside and Luther Manors are owned by the provinces Social Housing Corporation, they are managed locally by the Community Housing Society. The province and insurance companies picked up the bill for the repairs.
