Clintonville approves $35,000 budget

The roof at the Clintonville Community Center will be replaced at a cost not to exceed $35,000.

The Clintonville City Council approved the roof project when it met Aug. 8. The funds for the project will come from the Community Center General Revenue Fund.

Clintonville City Administrator Caz Muske said, “We’re not levying for this $30,000, it’s coming out of the fees that were collected for the use of this facility. That’s the beauty of it. We didn’t have to levy for the $30,000 or borrow for it. We’re able to utilize the fund balance that’s earmarked for this facility.”

Justin Mc Auly, director of Parks and Recreation and Public Works, said the city recently attempted for the second time to find a contractor to replace the roof on the Clintonville Community Center. The first attempt took place in January and February, and the bids the city received were double the cost that the city had budgeted for the project.

For the current attempt, Mc Auly said the city sent out around 35 mailings to local contractors requesting bids on the roof project. The request for bids was also included on a municipality classified website.

The city received bids from two contractors. The bids were for less than the bids received in the city’s first attempt, but still higher than what the city budgeted for the project, Mc Auly said.

Mc Auly said the bids are around $5,000 over budget.

The city received a bid from Gary Hauser with Overhead Solutions, located in Clintonville and Suamico, for $34,215 and a bid from Allen Bontrager Carpentry in Bonduel for $39,950.

Mc Auly said the recommendation from the Parks and Rec and Finance committees was to select the low bid submitted by Hauser.

“This includes the roof that is 28 years old, and it’s getting to the point where we have a few spots that have leaked in the last few years that we’ve had to fix,” Mc Auly said. “And all the gutters and downspouts are going to be upgraded to a little bit larger size.”

Mc Auly said most roofs last 20-25 years.

“This is something that’s been in the plans for awhile and now I think we should move forward to fix them,” Mc Auly said.
