Library Roof Leak: Update As of February 21, 2004
On Tuesday February 3 the library was open. Library Staff Member Deborah
Davis found that water was pouring into the room and
into light fixtures. The light fixtures began to smoke on the 4th.
Until Public Works Director Mr. Ed Gabay disconnected the circuit for the effected lights,
the branch remained closed. Now that there's no danger to anyone,
they are in business as usual.
Some photos (taken Feb. 10) of these leaks are shown in the "Interior
Images" on the FOL web site at http://mtrainierfol.org/library_facility.
Also, photos of the roof (taken Feb. 11) are show in the "Exterior Images" on the FOL web
At the February 10 work session, City Manager
Jeannelle Wallace informed the Council about the leaking roof.
There was no objection to her
proposal to start repairs immediately. On February 11 the signed
proposal was faxed to the roof repairers. On February 17 the roof was temporarily repaired.
On February 18 the electrician came and the lights are working.
The county library administration is concerned that during rain or melting
conditions, active leaks make the facility inoperable and that the library's
collections of books and other media are at risk of costly damage.
