BELLE VERNON, PA — Members of the Belle Vernon Area School Board approved repairs to two of nine critical areas on the roofs of the district''s buildings at a meeting this week, according to the Pittsburg Tribune-Review.
Directors accepted the bid to replace a section of the roof at Rostraver Elementary School and restore a section of roof at Bellmar Middle School to County Roofing and Heating Inc., the article stated.
"We have nine roof sections in the school district that have been determined to need major repair, so this will take care of three of them," said board Vice President Joe Grata, adding that the third critical area over the Bellmar Middle School gymnasium was repaired last year.
According to the article, administrators are looking into creating a "green" roof over the Belle Vernon Area High School cafeteria through funding from the federal government, which would add plants to the top of the structure to provide insulation and save energy.
