Council passed support for two City-owned buildings to see roof rehabilitation, at its June 13 meeting.

The roof above City Hall has seen minor water leaks and the department of engineering has noted immediate repair is necessary.

Capital funding for the rehabilitation was budgeted for 2012.

Scottco Roof Consultants of Saskatoon assessed the roof in 2010, at which point they recommended a new type of roof design.

The new design would expand and contract with the variable temperatures in Swift Current, and would provide relief from minor water damage and leaks.

Duncan Roofing of Moose Jaw will oversee the construction of the new roof at a bid of $71,600 plus GST.

Other tenders included Flynn Roofing Ltd. at $89,435, Skyline Roofing at $89,200, Century Roofing at $78,473, Clark Roofing Ltd. at $76,521, and Crestview Roofing Ltd. with a $72,100 bid.

The City RCMP detachment roof will also see rehabilitation with the same style and design.

The 2010 Capital Budget included $165,000 for the effort.

Crestview Roofing Ltd. of Moose Jaw will oversee the project at $171,700 plus GST.

Other tenders included Skyline Roofing at $276,400, Flynn Roofing Ltd. at $233,635, Duncan Roofing Ltd. at $230,720, Century Roofing at $226,645, and Clark Roofing Ltd. at a bid of $212,877.

Mac Forster, director of engineering for the City, indicated the new and improved roofs would have a life expectancy of 25 to 30 years.

Keeping score

The Credit Union i-plex will have a brand new scoreboard for next season.

Funding for the purchase was included in the 2011 Capital Budget for $450,000.

However, $300,000 will come from the remaining five years of the i-plex naming rights agreement.

Four City facilities will benefit from the purchase, and the actual cost to the Recreation and Parks department will be $150,000.

The existing scoreboard at the i-plex will be dismantled and reused. Two screens will go to the Fairview Arena to replace its failing system, one will go to Kinetic Park for use of soccer and other indoor activities, and the remaining section will be kept in City inventory as a spare.

AXE Integrated Solutions of Edmonton won the tender for the new board at a cost of $251,850.48 plus GST.

Other bids put forth were Sign of the Times of Regina at $309,540, Hamilton Digital Design Ltd. of Toronto at $342, 255.90, ROCK Group Canada of Surrey at $415,695, and Centaur Products Inc. of Calgary for $448,050.75.
