The Chippewa County Board of Commissioners met in Special Session on Thursday, April 20, 2006 at 4:30 p.m. in the Courtroom of the Chippewa County Courthouse, Sault Ste. Marie, MI 49783.

Present: Commissioners Ted Postula, Don Cooper, Scott Shackleton, Richard Timmer, Bernard LaJoie, Jim Moore and Chairman Earl Kay

Also Present: Kelly Beaune, Acting Controller, Jim Vanderlay, Northern Restoration & Waterproofing, and Diane Cork, Clerk

It was moved by Commissioner Shackleton, supported by CommissionerTimmer, to take from the table the motion of April 10, 2006 relating to the painting/staining repair work for the Courthouse Annex. On a voice vote, the motion carried unanimously.

Jim Vanderlay, President, Northern Restoration & Waterproofing, answered questions re: paint –vs- stain, brick repair work, stripping, warranty and time frames for repair and water damage.

Mr. Vanderlay explained at the time of the original bid the County wanted the building painted so that the many different colored bricks would match. Stripping would not be cost effective. He explained that he thought the damaged being done to the bricks/paint was due to water coming off the roof and perhaps by installing a drip edge, the problem would be alleviated.

It was moved by Commissioner Shackleton, supported by Commissioner Postula, to accept the bid from Northern Restoration & Waterproofing in the amount of $8,400 for the repair of the two northern most westside elevations of the Courthouse Annex. On a voice vote, the motion carried with Commissioner Cooper voting no.

It was moved by Commissioner Moore, supported by Commissioner Timmer, to adjourn. On a voice vote, the motion carried unanimously and the Board did adjourn at 4:45 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Diane S. Cork, Clerk

Earl Kay, Chairman
