The Peace River Regional District has started the bidding process to repair the roof at the Charlie Lake Fire Hall.
During recent rains, members of the Charlie Lake Fire Department noticed there was a significant leak in the roof.
“The leak was due to the age of the roof and the type of roofing that was used,” a Peace River Regional District report from June 9 states.
The regional district’s investigation showed that the leak was a result of ice buildup on the roof over the winter due to improper drainage.
The PRRD authorized $35,000 of the $100,000 available through the building’s capital reserve funding to fix the problem.
The PRRD’s purchasing policy dictates that at least three bids must be received from prospective contractors to carry out the work on the roof. The winning bidder will then come before the board for approval.
