Decorah Middle School roof repairs considered

By Roz Weis,

Decorah Community School District (DCSD) board members are dealing with a leaky roof.

DCSD Superintendent Tim Cronin informed the board that the roof on the 17-year-old Decorah Middle School has leaked for 16 ½ of those years. Original roofing contractors attempted temporary repairs over the years, but those efforts have been exhausted.

After considerable debate at Monday’s School Board meeting, Cronin was instructed to reach out for bids from architectural or engineering firms for cost of replacing the existing roof. Cost estimates are between $800,000 and $1 million, according to Cronin.

Greg Schaller, director of building and grounds for the district, attended Monday night’s meeting and explained the long history of the leaky roof.
