Patten Hotel May Be Ready For City Inspectors Thursday Or Friday

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

The management firm that operates the Patten Towers said the fire-damaged facility may be ready for city inspectors as early as Thursday or Friday, city officials said.

That is earlier than expected to repair the main electrical system at the former upscale hotel at 11th and Market.

Also, PK Management officials said they will pay hotel bills for displaced residents through Friday.

The 241 residents all had to be moved out after the fire on May 28.

They initially were housed at the Brainerd Recreation Center.

Joyce Walker of PK Management said, “PK Management has paid and extended all hotel stays for residents of Patten Towers to Friday, June 21st at all nine (9) hotels. Residents have been notified of hotel extensions as of today. The facilities team has been working around the clock to prepare the building for the residents return. As stated before, our residents are our priority and we want them to come back to a safe environment. All residents who have concerns may call our hotline number @ (866) 211-0227 and someone will get back to them as soon as possible. All residents should leave their full name and Patten Towers Apartment number, along with a valid phone number where they may be reached.”
