There was a fairly routine agenda for Christian Fiscal Court this morning, which took action to repair roof damage on the Christian County Senior Citizen Center.
The almost brand new foam roof took significant damage early this month during a severe thunderstorm, according to Magistrate Jim Flemming, who said he believed the wind shouldn’t have been enough to damage it, if installed correctly.
Court unanimously approved giving Judge-Executive Steve Tribble emergency authority to go ahead with paying Gilliland Construction 59 thousand dollars to put a metal roof on the building, which Flemming believes will be much more durable.
Since the damage was weather-related, a vast majority of those costs will be paid by the county’s insurance provider—minus a deductible.
In other business, court approved signing a new lease agreement with the City of Hopkinsville on the Western Hills Golf Course and declared a piece of county road department equipment as surplus.
