BOE Discusses Roof Projects at North and South Schools, Crab Orchard School Sewer Project
Samantha Monday August 29, 2016

At last weeks Board of Education Meeting, the re-roofing projects at North and South Elementary Schools and Crab Orchards sewer issue were all discussed. Mr. Chamberlin reminded the board that, although the buildings of North and South Cumberland Elementary Schools are identical, they do not have the same kind of roof. As such, Norths roof will be more expensive and more difficult to replace. Mr. Chamberlin outlined how the roofs will be undertaken at the meeting. He also discussed some masonry work that needs to be done at both schools, which will require simple patching rather than complete replacement. The proposed reroof schedule was presented, and is as follows: complete construction documents should be ready by 9/22/16, bids will be received beginning 10/20/16, said bids will be reported to the BOE by 10/27/16, a contract awarded by 11/1/16, work will begin on South on 3/1/17, and work on North will begin on 5/22/17. Mr. Chamberlin stated that the work should be postponed until after winter, and that since Norths reroofing will be much more difficult and thus noisy, it will be postponed until school lets out in the spring. If everything goes to plan, the schools should have new roofs with a 20-year leak-proof warranty for the 2017-2018 school year. The Board voted to approve the current construction documents and bidding at the 8/25 meeting. For the Crab Orchard School Sewer project, Mr. Chamberlin deferred to come back in October with a report and recommendations from the Fire Chief. Bids for this project opened on August 4th, and Lori Neel & Associates was awarded the contract.
