Interim Superintendent Lee Warne reviewed preliminary cost estimates on roof repairs that were designated for “immediate replacement” on the elementary building. A total of six roofs were included in the report from TSP Engineering, with total cost of replacement estimated at $200,500 – $237,500. The roofs on the Ruthton 1923 building alone would cost $155,000 – $175,000, on what they designated as Roof 1 and Roof 2.
Warne showed pictures that revealed scores of patches that have been applied in the past and many more rips and tears in the membrane covering the roof.
