Alton Housing moving on materials testing, renovating Alton Manor kitchens

ALTON — With kitchen improvements coming this year at Alton Manor public housing complex, Alton Housing Authority Board of Commissioners agreed Tuesday to amend its agreement with architects.

The addendums, to AHA’s contract with Melotte Morse Leonatti Parker Ltd. of Springfield, Illinois, provides for lead-based paint and asbestos testing in the 44, circa 1959 apartments at Dooley Drive and East Elm Street.

AHA Executive Director Greg Denton said the additional cost of testing for asbestos would run between $1,615 and $1,775; and $7,955 for testing for presence of lead-based paint. “It would be a maximum of $9,730” additional cost, he said.

Previously, the AHA reserved the apartments for senior citizens and people with disabilities, but now it is making the units available to the general population.
