Fillmore Central approves summer roofing project


Fri, Apr 25th, 2008
Posted in Education

HARMONY - Custodial Supervisor Blaine Moe attended the Fillmore Central School Board meeting on April 22 to update the board on facility summer projects, and to make a few requests.

According to Moe, the estimate previously received for completely replacing the Middle School roof was around $400,000. However, Moe came up with a plan to repair the parts that need repairing in both the middle and elementary buildings at a fraction of that cost.

The part of the middle school roof that is ballasted, or covered with rock, is in bad shape and desperately needs replacing, Moe said. He also mentioned that the brick at the elementary is the wrong kind of brick, and absorbs moisture. The cost to remove the caps, replace the bricks and put caps back on would be $8,021. The approximate cost to replace the ballasted roof at the middle school would be $25,600. Moe explained that a rubber membrane from Firestone will be placed under the rocks. There are also some leaks in the seams that could be repaired, and training could be provided for staff to do it themselves. Along with materials, the total cost of that would be $2,740.

The roof over the middle school gym is from 1959, and also needs a lot of work, but Moe said they could do some patching and get through another year with it. The total cost of repairs for this summer would be around $40,000. Moe is waiting on another bid, and board member Sue Ostrom recommended a company that would offer a bid as well.

Moe also asked for approval to hire two part-time people to fill a full-time position in maintenance. He would also need a person to work 20 hours a week over the summer to help out with these repairs. The board approved going ahead with the project, getting bids and hiring the needed help.

Moe also requested the district purchase new equipment for the custodial staff at the elementary and middle schools. Moe requested a new auto floor scrubber, a floor buffer, a wet vacuum and a squeegee to replace outdated equipment that is in bad shape. The total cost for these items is $9,100. No action was taken on the request.

Open Campus

The board approved hiring Taher Food Service as the vendor for the next two years. The district has been satisfied with them. The bid, which has to be a per meal cost, was $1.53 per meal. Superintendent Myrna Luehmann said Taher will be discussing the budget in the fall and will probably request a raise in lunc .....
