Rossville board approves building repairs

ROSSVILLE — Village trustees approved on Monday the proposal from Crawley Construction of Rossville to put a new floor in the village-owned building at 113 E. Attica St.

The building, which had once been the former village office, has a badly deteriorating floor that needs repaired in order for the village to be able to sell it.

Crawley’s proposal had been to remove the existing floor and floor joists are replace them at a cost of $16,580. However, Doug Crawley, owner of Crawley Construction, was present at the meeting and informed the board he could remove the old floor, backfill the old basement and pour a concrete floor for the same cost.

Board members approved Crawley’s proposal for replacing the floor with concrete.

A similar proposal for the building at 103 E. Attica St. was tabled.

The village had also sought proposals to replace the roof on the municipal building. The village received only one proposal to cover the existing roof with a steel roof at a cost of $9,301. That bid, from Mike Bray of Rossville, was rejected as too high.

The village will rebid the project with bid opening to be Aug. 15.
