Public works sheds to get new roofs

Replacing three shed roofs in the Public Works Yard this year will cost taxpayers just over $41,600.

That price tag is $6,000 more than the $34,000 budget that was adopted for the project in May, based on an independent estimate by a consultant last fall. Council was also given the option of just replacing the worst of the three roofs, at a cost of $28,290. However, according to the consultant’s estimates, delaying the replacement could cost up to an extra $23,000, increasing the total costs by almost $9,000.

As council voted to support the over-budget option, it will need to adopt an amendment to the Financial Plan Bylaw and a Capital Works and Equipment Reserve Fund Appropriation Bylaw before the contract can be awarded. If the amendment and bylaw are adopted, Mayor and council will be presented with the recommendation to award the contract to Alpha Roofing.
