ALBION – Workers from the Elmer Davis roofing company in Rochester are up high on Village Hall in Albion at 35-37 East Bank St. The company is working to do a complete tear off and roof replacement for Village Hall before winter.

It will also replace the roofs on the next-door fire hall and the Department of Public Works on King Street. The company will make some temporary fixes on those roofs before completing the projects next spring.

The Village Board in June decided to borrow $550,000 in a bond to pay for the three new roofs. The double-layered roofs have been leaking and they at the end of their useful lives, said Jason Foote, an engineer with Clark Patterson Lee, which inspected the roofs and helped prepare cost estimates.

The projects include the 3,500 square foot roof on the Village Hall, the 2,200 square foot roof on the Fire Hall, and two roofs at the DPW building – one that is 10,900 square feet over the truck bays and shop, and another that is 3,500 square feet over the offices.
