Workers were in the process of replacing the roof when the upstairs facilities, downstairs offices on the south side of the building, and most of the ceiling tile in the lobby were damaged.
Repairs were delayed until the city accepted a settlement from Auto-Owners Insurance. The City Council agreed to a settlement during its meeting June 19. According to the offer, the settlement was for $87,620 and included $1,365 for temporary information technology, $4.410 for final IT reconfiguration, $500 for damaged conference table and chairs, $7,600 to Versatile Contracting for dry-in/temporary repairs and replacing damaged cooping, and $37,869 for ServePro services. The remaining $35,875 is the depreciated reconstruction estimate.
The council approved a measure to appropriate not more than $10,000 in depreciated costs to restore the facilities. Actual depreciation estimates are $9,125. Depreciation estimates must be subtracted from total estimates.
The settlement didn’t include six-year depreciation, city clerk Sandra Donahoo said. The out-of-pocket expenses would allow the city to do some things that need to be done upstairs, she said.
Circle H Construction of Wilsonville is the contractor making the repairs. According to the contractor’s proposal, repairs include but are not limited to replacement and repair of all damaged light fixtures, repair and replacement of damaged duct work, replacement of water-damaged insulation, removal and replacement of all damaged sheetrock, repainting all walls, replacement of laminated flooring in offices and new carpet, refinishing hardwood, replacing ceiling tiles.
The lobby remains divided by a double wall black plastic sheathing and the restoration process should not interrupt city or county services. Insulation and sheetrock have been replaced upstairs and the ceiling tile has been replaced in the lobby.
“Progress, progress, progress,” Donahoo said.
