The California R-I School Board heard a report on needed repairs to the roof of the high school at the regular monthly meeting, Wednesday, Nov. 16.
According to Superintendent Dwight Sanders, the roof of the high school building has been a problem for several years. Although leaks have been found in several areas, the most severe problems appear to have been in the band room, vocal music room, art room, boiler room and the hallway outside of those rooms.
These leaks have been very close to the gym, and since the gym floor has been refinished, its best to seek a remedy before that floor suffers water damage.
More than $40,000 has already been spent on what has amounted to temporary roof repairs. Sanders commented that it is better to go ahead with something which will take care of the problem rather than continue to spend about $15,000 each year on temporary repairs.
