City hall roof to be patched up for first time in 10 years

Exeter's city hall and community building are set to receive roofing repairs for the first time in 10 years.

The roofs of both buildings have smalls holes that cause leaks, and Mayor Rusty Reed says part of the problem is the leveling of the roofs.

"The problem with flat roofs is the amount of water that can accumulate and cause leaks," Reed said. "That's why most people are replacing the flat ones."

Both buildings will keep the flat roofing, but both will be mopped and patched wherever the repairs are needed.

"It's been about 10 years since the last time any work has been done on the roof, but it should have been done sooner," Reed said.

The maintenance will be done by Golubski Roofing Company, of Pierce City, which has done roof work for the city in the past. With the tar patching, Golubski will also install some fiberglass shingles to help reduce leaks. The repairs will cost $3,060 and will be paid for through the city's general revenue fund.

The city also plans on doing gutter work on city hall after discovering that the gutters are leaning into the building and causing some minor flooding. These repairs will be also paid for with general revenue.
