Bellanca Building to get roof repairs
The Alexandria City Council voted to spend about $8,250 to make roof repairs at the Bellanca Building.
A 10-foot-by-50-foot section of the roof will be repaired at a cost of about $7,500 and other minor roof repairs over the office end of the building will cost about $750. The total cost will not exceed $9,000, according to city officials.
Pools of water leaked from the roof after a heavy rain June 5.
Following are other items from the June 11 meeting that were not included in other council stories.
