Chairman Mr. Holbrook recognized Mr. Bergie Speaks for an overview of the Roofing Bids.  Due to current budget restraints, there was a meeting on May 20, 2016 with the Wilkes County Inspections department in regards to our roofing project at Wilkesboro.  Mr. Walsh and Mr. Tom Smith with Barger Ashe (apparent low bidder) agreed on a system that would be more cost effective saving approximately $200,000.00 maintaining the same 15 year warranty.  On a motion by Ms. Huffman seconded by Mr. Shumate, and duly carried the board approved Barger-Ashe Roofing as the contractor for projects at Wilkesboro and Mulberry elementary schools.   Both projects total $730,700.00.
