A new and expanded roof is on the way for the Homer Medical Clinic. An ordinance appropriating South Peninsula Hospital funds to replace and expand the Homer Medical Clinic Roof was approved at Tuesday’s Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting.
The roof has reached the end of its useful life and is in need of replacement, the ordinance said. The total estimated cost of construction is $360,000.
Other renovations at the Homer Medical Clinic were made possible in 2017 with the help of general obligation bonds. At that time a “priority for replacement” of the facility’s 5,500 square foot roof was set aside due to the lack of funding for its completion, the ordinance said.
The South Peninsula Hospital, Inc. Board voted to recommend approval of the ordinance. The South Kenai Peninsula Hospital Service Area Board did not take action regarding the ordinance.
