STURGIS – The City of Sturgis has decided on a plan to fix the roof of City Hall.

During Wednesday's City Commission meeting, Facilities Manager Dan Root went over options presented during a previous meeting. He then recommended to the Commission the option of the 2 ply BUR retrofit. This includes the removal and replacement of the built up roof system at a cost of $663,049.

Root says that figure is an architect's budget number. He is hoping it will come in at a lower cost when they send it out for bid.

Root says the lease partners in the building, the Sturgis District Library, is responsible for 40% of the cost of the project. Root has spoken to Library Director Todd Reed. While no financial plans have been discussed, Root says Reed is ready to move forward and get the project done.

This plan would have a life span of 30 years for the building.

The Commission voted unanimously to release the bid documents for this option.
