City school board awards contracts for East, West Elementary roofs; personnel changes announced

CULLMAN - This week, the Cullman City School Board approved recommendations from Stephen Ward & Associates, Inc. to award a contract to low bidder Porter Roofing Contractors, Inc. from Morrison, Tennessee for roof replacement at West Elementary School and to award a contract to low bidder Willoughby Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. from Cullman for roof replacement at East Elementary School.

The schools’ roofs, damaged in the March hail storm, were temporarily sealed last month to stop leaks until the end of the school year, when construction crews could come and make permanent repairs.  The bid amounts and names of other bidders were not released, and no one with that information was available at the Central Office on Thursday afternoon or Friday.
