DEADWOOD — Summer 2018 storms took their toll on Deadwood’s public buildings, prompting the city commission July 1 to approve four roof replacement projects totaling $171,542.
Permission was granted to enter into contract with Albright Construction to replace the trolley barn roof for $26,128; to replace the roof on the fire hall bell tower for $15,138; and to replace the roof on the VIP east grandstands at the Deadwood Event Complex for $32,296.
The projects will be paid for from the public buildings budget.
A fourth project, removing and replacing the steel roof at the Welcome Center, was also granted permission, and the city will enter into contract with Armour Roofing and Construction to complete this project for $97,980.
“I met with both companies, Albright Construction, and Armour Roofing on this at different times down there to make sure we have a good comparison for estimates,” said Deadwood Public Buildings, Transportation, and Safety Director Tom Kruzel, adding that the other estimate received was in the amount of $159,000.
