Commissioners discuss roofing projects

| November 8, 2018

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Commissioners met with Dennis Lowe, consultant and Ike Reger, maintenance supervisor, to discuss two buildings in the county that need a new roof: The justice center and the progressive center.

“Denny keeps us informed, he understands the permit process, and he keeps our interests at heart and keeps maintenance in touch with what’s going on,” said Commissioner Dane Shryock. “Whenever Denny is involved, it seems to make the project go very smoothly.”

The roof on the justice center is 46 years old and has a leak in the roof that cannot be found. The leak was so severe that just last week, it brought down the ceiling tile.

“We wanted to get an estimate on how to proceed and try to see if we want to bring in an architect,” said Shryock. “We brought in Denny and Ike because we’re trying to figure out the best way to proceed.”

Lowe said it was in the commissioners’ best interest to bring in an architect to be able to deal with the specification of each building such as terms of payment, contract management, specification performance bonds, liability insurance, etc. as well as the drawings and approval of the project. Lowe will act as a go-between for the commissioners and the architect.

“Denny is our eyes on the project and he’s the guy with the expertise,” said Commissioner Gary Fischer.

The commissioners asked Lowe to select an architect from a list provided to him. The commissioners are hoping to start the projects in the spring or summer of 2019.
