Leaky roof at Peter Lougheed Community Centre causes concern

A leaky roof at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre could end up costing town council big bucks, but the issue will not go away by itself.

A leaky roof at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre could end up costing town council big bucks, but the issue will not go away by itself.

Director of community services, Cindy Bowie said the section of roof built over the curling rink lounge has been leaking.

“There has been wet tiles and the carpet has been damp,” she said.

Cooper Roofing were contacted, but cannot proceed with damage control immediately as the roof is wet.

Bowie met with council at a special meeting Dec. 2 to discuss the issue and was told to refer the matter to the town’s engineers, Tagish Engineers from Red Deer.

Bowie said she is hoping to meet with Tagish before Christmas and wants to get an estimate on replacing the entire roof as well as the section that is leaking.

“We need to discuss what we can do and what is the best possible solution,” she said.

She noted the community centre is around 30 years old and renovations to the roof are definitely needed.
