STANFORD - Lincoln County Board of Education accepted a bid Tuesday for repairs on the high school roof, as well as a bid to refurbish the gym floor during Christmas break.
The leaks in the roof will cost the school district an estimated $7,850 to fix under a bid submitted by a Nashville-based company, Creative Metals.
The leaks were caused by exhaust fans that were not properly installed when the school was built. The protective curb around the base of the fans is about eight inches too short, allowing rain and snow to blow over the curb and into the school gym, said P.D. Roller, director of buildings and grounds.
The repairs includes new fans, four new exhaust covers for the fans, and a better curbing system around the exhaust covers.
