Heartland Roofing to Manage School District's Roof Repairs
The Norfolk Public Schools Board of Education has given approval to a contract for a company to manage more than $2-million in roof repairs on district buildings. At Tuesday night's meeting, the board agreed to hire Heartland Roofing to manage all of the district roof replacements, repairs and resurfacing. Superintendent Marlene Uhing says Heartland will put the specs together for the bidding process, accept the bids and explain the differences to the board as they make their decision on which companies to hire. Uhing says the Norfolk Public School has been working with Heartland on the roofing project for about a year. Heartland will also supervise the work on the projects, and advise the board when it comes time to sign off on completed work. Uhing says the roof projects are being financed through Qualified Capital Purpose Undertaking Fund - or QCPUF bonds. Work will take about three-and-a-half years, and Heartland will be paid 6.5 percent of the total cost for managing the projects.
