Low bid for new roof at county Public Safety Building comes in at $236,000 | News

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WV News) – Bids for a rooftop project in the county public safety building in Nutter Fort ranged from $ 236,000 to $ 356,000. The deals were opened on Wednesday at a regular meeting of the Harrison County Commission.

The county received three bids for the project, with Tri-State Roofing and Sheet Metal offering a base bid of $ 235,910, Boggs Roofing of $ 285,000, and Sutter Roofing of $ 356,000.

District Administrator Willie Parker told WV News that bids had been received regarding the results expected for the project.

The commissioners sent the tender documents for review by the district staff, who will likely make a recommendation for the commission to review at a future meeting.

Although the sheriff’s law enforcement agency is expected to move out of the building once a new headquarters in downtown Clarksburg is ready, the county expects to receive the Nutter Fort building for storage.

Commissioners also voted to approve $ 2,000 for the Marshville Community Center to cover supplies and insurance for 2020. According to the funding request, pandemic restrictions on gatherings restricted the centre’s ability to raise funds.

The community center’s board of trustees had requested $ 3,000 from the commission.

In other business areas the commission is:

– Postponing a public hearing on a proposed revision of the Subdivision Regulation to allow for proper public notice.

According to attorney Trey Simmerman, the county’s legal advisor, the hearing must be made public at least 30 days in advance.

The existing subdivision regulation has not been updated since the 1970s. Simmerman said the new version is “a much needed update” and he believes the revisions are “something that needs to be gone through”.

However, Jeffrey Chalfant of Harrison County, who said he had experience creating a housing estate in 2001, opposed the revision.

According to Chalfant, the existing regulation is “very strict” and should be simplified rather than further complicated.

“They added 20 more pages. We’re always talking about Harrison County’s economic development. This will definitely slow it down,” he said.

In other business areas the commission is:

– Approved a resolution to establish the American Rescue Plan Act 2021 Fund, limited to income and expenses under the recently enacted American Rescue Plan Act.

The county expects a little more than $ 13 million due to the legislation.

“The only thing I want to make sure is that that’s all that’s in this fund and everything goes through this fund and doesn’t go to another, comes out and has to come back,” said Commission President Susan Thomas.

County Administrator Willie Parker said this was the instruction the county received from the State Auditor’s Office.

“Depending on the expenses, you may reimburse other funds for expenses, but these will be documented as such with the appropriate paperwork,” he said.
