UTICA, NY-- Construction jobs are open in the city and the Utica Municipal Housing Authority is working to find interested candidates to fill those positions.

The UMHA held a job fair at the Utica Public Library on Tuesday, specifically for for people interested in construction training, apprenticeship programs and employment for the Roosevelt Residences construction project. The 15.8 million project is in Utica's Cornhill neighborhood and is under construction across 11 sites, with 25 buildings and 50 housing units.

The goal of the fair help local developers and contractors find individuals interested in working on affordable housing and other commercial and residential projects in the area.

John Furman, director of grants, programs compliance and monitoring with UMHA, said construction companies are searching for employees ahead of summer and many positions will open up across the region, especially as more people begin to retire.

"In the Mohawk Valley area we're seeing a large demand for construction employment, so this job fair is also going to be continued in the future," he said.

For more information on the project, training or employment, call (315) 735-5246 or visit: www.facebook.com/UticaMHA
