The high school and shop com- plex are 35 years old and the adminis- tration ]s more than 65 years old. All indications are that the roofs of these structures are original. Consultantsin- dicate the roofs have an estimated use- ful life of 15 to 20 years. Bob Roush, district maintenance employee, said, "When it rains, district maintenance personnel must place buckets in numerous locations to con- tain the water." Leaking roofs damage interior walls, ceilings and floors. Water leaks can also damage furnishings and expensive equipment, such as comput- ers. The district's roofing consultant is alsoconcemed that waterreachingdec- trical wiring couldpotentially be a fire hazard. Mold in the interior of the building could also become an envi- ronmentalproblem. Patching and band- aid repairs will not solve the problem. The consultant has estimated the total cost of replacing roofs on these three buildings, with bonding costs, at a total of $550,000. The USD 278 Board of Education voted to contrib- vo-ag (shop) complex and ute $150,000 in existing capital outlay i trafion building (old junior high) all ftmds to the project, if needed. Fund- "'""I , repairs would deplete the district capi- tal outlay funds to adangerously low level. These funds are needed for other capital needs and as emergency funds to maintain district buildings and transportation needs. USD 278 S0perintendent, Dean Schultz, indicates that funding the needed roof repairs with a voted bond issue is a more economic solution. The State of Kansas will help retire the bonds under a law created by the 1992 Kansas Legislature. USD 278 is eligible for 31 percent of the bond payments in additional state aid with a voted bond issue. The amount of state aid, both principal and interest, is estimated at $158,000. The addi- tional state aid is more than the esti- mated interest cost for the 10-year bonds. Additionally, interest rates for the tax-exempt bonds are near his- torically low levels. Obviously, the Mankato School District believes the roof problems will not go away or~lve themselves. Consult~isindicatethe .~'oblems will continue to worsen and increase the cost of needed solutions.
