WORK SET TO START SOON ON SORENTO SCHOOL ROOF

 

The Bond County Community Unit 2 School Board held a special meeting Monday night.  The main item on the agenda was the review of bids for the work to be done to the Sorento School roof.  The work includes putting a slope to the roof to allow water to drain off.  Currently the flat roof has some places where the water pools which can cause leaks.  The work will cover the school and gymnasium and should also allow for energy savings by holding in more heat than the old roof.  The project was awarded to the low bidder, Joiner Sheet Metal and Roofing, for $87,700.  The board approved the bid unanimously.
