AVALON — Community Hall here is in dire need of roof repair, officials said at Borough Council’s meeting Feb. 25.
“It’s on its spongy last leg,” Councilwoman Nancy Hudanich said.
Councilman Joseph Tipping said roof edge areas form puddles and pose potential leak damage.
Conversation was sparked when council authorized an $11,053 change order for the replacement of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) components in Community Hall at its meeting Feb. 25 here.
The original contract with Air Control Technology of West Berlin was awarded Sept. 10, 2008 for $154,470. After the change order, it will cost the borough $165,523, an increase of 7.15 percent of the total project cost.
“Not only is this an unforeseen condition, but it is literally unseeable,” Borough Engineer Thomas Thornton said of the roof’s steel beams and ducts that are inaccessible from the inside.
