Members of the Corry Housing Authority on Thursday awarded contracts for renovation work at Center Place Apartments, 100 N. Center St.

The work will include renovating two units at Center Place Apartments to make them Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS) compliant.

“We thought if we bid them together, we could get a better deal, and it looks like we did,” said Mike McNierney, acting executive director for the Corry Housing Authority.

McNierney said for Housing and Urban Development units, UFAS standards are used instead of standards for the Americans With Disabilities Act.

“They are more stringent than ADA,” McNierney said about UFAS standards.
