Couple donate new pavilion to Perryville school

August 22, 2003|GARY MOYERS

Assuming the state Board of Education approves, Perryville Elementary School will receive a donated pavilion in the next few weeks to provide a shady rest area for students on the playground.

Bill and Linda Faulconer, parents of four Perryville Elementary students and owners of Faulconer Mechanical Services, donated the 24-foot by 24-foot timber pavilion, complete with concrete floor, to the school.

Bill Faulconer said the materials should be delivered in the next few weeks, and once the concrete pad is poured, construction could proceed in a couple of days.

Boyle County school Superintendent Pam Rogers thanked the couple for their donation, and assured them a request for approval from Frankfort will be expedited.


Rogers also reported the acquisition of 27 acres of property adjacent to Boyle County's main campus on Perryville Road and owned by Centre College is in its final stages. She said the Department of Education had requested some additional information, and that has been provided.

The company that installed the roof at Perryville Elementary School earlier this year plans to fix the leaks that developed over the summer.

Insulated Roofing of Louisville, the subcontractor that actually installed the roof, has agreed to repair 18 leaks at Perryville and two more at Junction City Elementary.

Boyle Maintenance Director Kenny Coyle said he met with representatives of the company earlier this week, and they assured him work would begin "in the next few days."

Foam Enterprises Inc. of Minneapolis, Minn., the actual contractor for the roof, originally claimed the leaks were caused by a hail storm and are not covered by the warranty. But Coyle said contact was made with the subcontractor and progress toward the repairs is now being made.

One Perryville leak that has resulted in some warping of the new gym floor will not be repaired by the company, Coyle said, because they believe the water is from a mechanical leak rather than a roof leak.

"They told us they will be there any day to do the repairs, and they're going to show us where the gym floor leak is so we can have it taken care of," said Coyle.
