Commissioners Approve Motion Of Shingle Layout To Remain The Same, No Pattern

WAYNE – With the two regularly scheduled Wayne County Board of Commissioners meetings already being held in the month of October, an emergency meeting was called to start the week of October 21.

After opening the special meeting in the Wayne County clerk’s office inside the courthouse Monday morning, commissioners made their way to the garage to hear an update on the courthouse restoration project.

Berggren Architects and the roofer were on hand to explain to the commissioners the shingling process. The shingles are being stored in the garage on courthouse property.

When the commissioners came to the courthouse last Thursday, they noticed the color of the shingles on the roof were a bit off than what they thought they were. During the cloudy day Monday, the shingles didn’t look as orange compared to last Thursday’s sunny day.

The five colors were laid out on the garage floor and it was mentioned the pallets were factory mixed and in completely random order. So, if the commissioners wanted to change the pattern or get rid of the orange it would take three to four days and extra expenses to start over with a new pattern.

A motion was made and approved to keep the random pattern of shingles.

The five different colors of synthetic slate shingles are 12” and 14” in width and there will be no pattern on how they are placed on the courthouse roof. It was also mentioned during their conversation that there would be a slight change in the color after a year, but not noticeable and the corners would be random as well on the roof.

The next regularly scheduled Wayne County Board of Commissioners meeting will be on Tuesday, November 5 at 9 a.m.
