Business should be back to normal at Pulaski County Health Department next week, if the weather cooperates.
Work got underway Monday to replace the roof on the building, which had started leaking so badly late last year that one county supervisor indicated the agency’s employees were basically “working out in the rain.”
Monday, Assistant County Administrator Robert Hiss said installation of the new roof should be completed by the end of the week “weather permitting.”
Some clinics to be held at the department this week have been moved to health departments in Radford and Christiansburg while the roof is replaced. Unless the weather causes a delay, the department should be back to its normal schedule next week.
Pulaski County Board of Supervisors voted in December to hire John Morgan Roofing to install a new 90-mil fabric coated roof on the building, at the corner of Fourth Street and Randolph Avenue. The cost of the project is $33,369.
