The Nebraska City City Council will move forward with bids for the replacement of the city’s recreation department office roof, which was damaged in a June 2018 hailstorm.
The city received $15,777.23 for roof replacement and interior water damage repair to the office, said City Administrator Grayson Path.
Path, along with Nebraska City Construction and Facility Manager Marty Stovall and Parks and Recreation Director Scooter Edmisten, recommended that the city council solocit bids to replace the roof with a fully-adhered  rubber roof similar to the one recently installed on the Nebraska City Veteran’s Memorial Building.
The fully adhered rubber roof could cost as much as $30,000, said Path, but final estimates won’t be known until the city receives contractor bids.
The city has found one possible funding source in the current budget, said Path, who noted that $10,000 was budgeted for the replacement of four tornado siren receivers will not be needed after a successful siren test on April 6.
