North Kingsville council accepts roofing bid for village hall

North Kingsville officials have accepted a contract for roof repair on the village hall.

NORTH KINGSVILLE — The North Kingsville village Hall may look a little different soon.

At a meeting on Monday night, village officials accepted a bid from Flanigan’s American Roofing to replace the village hall’s roof.

The idea was first introduced at a special meeting in October, but failed a procedural vote. It passed unanimously on Monday night.

The village hall’s roof is leaking, officials said, and there has been some water damage.

Committee members met with contractor Ruben Schwartz to discuss how to repair water damage from the leaking roof.

The village has received money from its insurance company to cover the cost of repairs.

The price of replacing the roof is capped at $16,941, per the ordinance that was passed on Monday night.
