Andover Housing Authority to replace windows with $300,000 from state
The Andover Housing Authority has been awarded $306,590 in “formula funding” from the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development for fiscal year 2015. Chairman James Cuticchia reports the money will be used to replace all Frye Circle apartment windows.
Frye Circle is a town property located at 256 North Main St. There are 96 apartments and each apartment has two large windows. The 192 windows will be replaced with vinyl clad double hung windows and it is expected that the work will begin in April 2014.
The Andover Housing Authority also has been awarded $25,500 for trimming trees and removing some trees on all AHA properties, replacing iron handrails in Chestnut Court and replacing main door units and thresholds in the double decker buildings of Chestnut Court, according to a release. Work on these items is expected to commence sometime during April.
2013 rabies clinic
The Andover Animal Hospital will conduct the annual rabies vaccination clinic for dogs and cats on Saturday, April 13 from 8:30 a.m. to noon at its office at 233 Lowell Street.
The cost of the vaccination will be $10 per animal. All animals should be leashed or restrained.
Rabies vaccinations will be good for three years if you bring proof (current rabies certificate) that your pet has been immunized within the past year. Otherwise, the vaccination will be good for only one year.
State law requires that all dogs and cats must be vaccinated against rabies by six months of age and must be three months of age before they can be vaccinated.
If residents have not yet licensed their dogs for 2013, contact the Town Clerk’s Office for further information at 978-623-8255.
