Miller was present along with Bill Long from Weathercraft Roofing. There was discussion regarding the courthouse roof and the current roof status. The roof is about 35 years old. Long had sample products for his proposal for applying a new roof on the courthouse. With the cost of the replacement, the board is looking to budget for 2025, in addition to the bidding process. Following discussion with Long, and his recommendation to move quicker with the process, the board will re-evaluate to determine if this is a project that needs to be completed prior to the winter months due to potential water leaking.
