Municipal Center Roof.
Jason has had someone look at the roof of the Municipal Center. He was told that the general condition isn’t too bad for as old as it is, and repairs can be made for around $30,000. The contractor felt we could get an extra ten years out of it, and that we should be putting 10 to 12 thousand dollars per year away for future work to be done. Supervisor Monroe stated that he had budgeted $80,000 for the roof.
