AgriLife roof to be repaired
The roof damage that a Travis County building sustained during last week’s storms will be repaired by the end of August, county officials told commissioners Tuesday.
The single-story, 7-year-old building on Smith Road in eastern Travis County has a roof with an interior drain that clogged during the storms, according to Roger El Khoury, director of the county’s facilities management department.
“We’re investigating at this time,” he said.
County employees and Texas AgriLife Extension Service workers housed in the building were evacuated. No one was injured in the incident, but the building remains closed to the public. The employees are currently working elsewhere, and a temporary work space for them will be determined.
The county’s insurer has been notified, and there is a $50,000 deductible, said Dan Mansour, the county’s risk and benefits manager. Commissioners voted 3-0 to authorize the money, relocation services and other relief for the problem. Commissioners Ron Davis and Margaret Gómez were absent.
Those trying to reach the extension service or ask questions can call the main number for the county’s health and human services department at 854-4100, officials said.
