Hancock is replacing city’s fire hall roof

Kurt Hauglie/Daily Mining Gazette The Hancock City Council voted to hire OHM Advisors of Hancock for professional services and construction management for the replacement of the roof on the city’s fire hall.

HANCOCK — The Hancock City Council took the first step Wednesday toward replacing the roof on the city’s fire hall.

Council approved hiring OHM Advisors for professional services for $6,400 and construction administration for $3,000.

City Manger Glenn Anderson said the flat roof over the service bay is covered with a rubber membrane, which is past its warrantee life. There is a leak on the roof into the service bay, but exactly where hasn’t been located.

“The roof is 20 years old,” he said. “That leak could be coming from anywhere on the roof.”

About five years ago, Anderson said some small leaks were patched.

Anderson said when the council takes bids, they should be for the roof over the service bay and over the training area of the building. If there is enough money, they can replace the roofs over the service bay and over the trailing area next to the service bay.

“By minimum, we’d do the service bay,” he said.

Council voted unanimously to hire OHM Advisors for professional services and construction administration.

Council also voted unanimously to OHM Advisors to do design work for a new dock at Hancock Beach for $26,900, and to do construction administration for $20,500.

Anderson said it’s possible work on a new dock could take place this summer, but it may go into the summer of 2018.
