TRINITY — There was a bad news for Trinity High School as an engineer said the life of the roof is done.
A representative of DK Haney told the board on April 19 that the 35-year-old roof has lived a good life, but it’s time to consider replacing it.
A recent inspection by the Haney company showed numerous issues with the roof, including separation, ponding, deterioration of membrane and missing gravel, particularly above the cafeteria.
Eight leaks have been identified.
It was estimated to cost in the area of $825,000 to replace or repair the roof.
The board took no action as it will hear another presentation at the next board meeting.
In other business, the board:
• engaged Axley & Rode for the annual audit;
• approved the 2022-23 Allotment and TEKS certification form; and
• approved allowing Superintendent John Kaufman to hire teachers without board approval through August, with Board Member Ricky Hortman voting against the measure.
