Hartselle Intermediate School to receive new roof
The Hartselle Intermediate School will be hosting a new roof by late summer after the board approved the agreement with a Birmingham Contracting group during Wednesday morning’s meeting.
The Hartselle City School Board members hosted Rick Lathan with Lathan Associates Architects attended during the meeting at Crestline Elementary. Hartselle City Schools Superintendent Dr. Vic Wilson said the bid process will take about two months after going through the state.
“This has been in the works for sometime, especially after the long dry spell and into the large amount of rain, it really needs to be replaced,” Wilson said. “ What they are going to do is replace the HVAC units and the roof of the intermediate school and they hope to have the project done by late summer.”
Hartselle Intermediate School Principal Gaylon Parker said in his tenure at the school, they have need a new roof and he is excited to see the project completed.
“I’ve been at the intermediate school for three years and this has been in the making since then,” Parker said. “The roof has progressively gotten worse. All of the students, staff and faculty are so excited to see this happen. We’re very thankful.”
