The Washington County Board met for another lengthy meeting for May, again spending a large portion of the meeting discussing building items related to the ongoing renovation of the courthouse.
However, before the meeting business began, the board had a moment of silence for Ray Lisk, a county employee who was a sergeant with the Sheriff’s Department Jail, who had died on Tuesday, May 5. The board ordered that all flags at county buildings would be flown at half-mast on Saturday, May 16, in honor of Lisk.
Building committee chair Gary Suedmeyer discussed a number of different items with the board regarding the renovation including:
• Providing a level pad for the generator
• Providing temporary sheet piping at the trash pad to protect the ambulance building generator during construction of enclosure wall.
• Removal of a concrete ramp at the ambulance building which is causing drainage issues.
• Providing window screening on second floor restroom windows.
• Providing doors missing from the door schedule.
• Providing drywall for exterior of elevator shaft.
• Additional brick wall removal at four door sites.
• Roofing replacement over lower additions.
• Adding TPO membrane roofing over shallow roof instead of shingles.
• Wall demolition for brick wall opening for door installation, plus lintel and tuckpointing.
• Sourcing a fire pump and controls and evaluating the need for these items.
• Alterations to the plans for counters and cabinetry in the Clerk’s, Treasurer’s and Supervisor of Assessment’s Offices.
Suedmeyer also told the board that the county will receive credits for brick wall removal and metal wall construction and for fire door rating reductions.
