Ten apartments in the Ripley community will undergo renovation work under a contract approved by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors, officials said Thursday.
The board recently approved a $325,000 contract with Mantle Construction Inc. to renovate 10 of the 77 units at the Desert Rose Apartments, which is owned and operated by the Riverside County Housing and Workforce Solutions Department, according to the Office of Supervisor Manuel Perez.
The apartments were originally built as farmworker housing in 1986, and are in need of upgrades to be rented out again. The renovation project will include the repainting of apartments and replacement of old fixtures and damaged appliances.
The renovation work will be funded through Community Development Block Grant funds.
