Employees at the Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office will get a new roof over their heads this summer.
County commissioners approved a $77,293 contract Wednesday with Longview, Washington-based Weatherguard, Inc. to replace the 10,000-square-foot roof. The material and labor warranty for the roof will be 30 years.
Weatherguard has completed similar projects at the Oregon Film Museum as well as the main county offices.
The roof was installed in 2006 and the sheriff’s office moved there in 2016, but county staff discovered deteriorating roofing material during the remodel. Because the roof was still under warranty, the county reached an $11,725 settlement agreement with the original manufacturer.
The project is scheduled to be completed by June.
In other business Wednesday, commissioners:
• Adopted new fees beginning Thursday. One of the fees is $450 property owners must pay for a vacation rental application. Commissioners approved vacation rental safety regulations in January. The fee will go toward safety inspections.
An enterprise zone application fee will cost $75. The Community Development Department will also charge $30 more for changed address or street name applications.
• Continued a hearing until April 25 on an ordinance that would impose a 3 percent tax on retail marijuana sales. At that meeting, commissioners may refer the tax to voters on the November ballot.
