C.      Town Hall Annex Storage/Additional Office Space

Mr. Borrup reported that Dzen Roofing checked the Town Hall Annex roof and found that the roof leak problem was actually a masonry issue.  Mr. Norton requested that he be notified when someone will be in or on the roofs of the town buildings.  Mr. Borrup stated that the peak roof is fine but the flat roof has a problem where the flashing meets the edge.  Dzen estimated that the repair of the roof would be $35,746 and the estimate for the masonry work is $4,000.  The committee felt it would cost approximately $150 per window to put on storm windows and it would cost $400 to repair the interior of each room to make it safe and dry for storage.  Pictures of the Town Hall Annex roof conditions were distributed and discussed.  A lengthy discussion followed regarding the feasibility of maintaining and repairing a building in this condition.
