McKenzie, Tenn.- The McKenzie City Council met Thursday and the council was updated on the roof repairs for City Hall.

The McKenzie City Council found that the roof on City Hall needs to be replaced and the city cannot continue to patch the holes in the roof, since the patches are no longer working.

Currently there are open holes in the roof that continue to leak and the water is damaging to the electrical work throughout City Hall, which is a safety concern now. And the water is also damaging equipment in both the McKenzie Fire and Police Departments.

The City Council passed a resolution that the city will now seek bids to repair the roof on City Hall. The City Council has yet to determine whether they will seek bids to replace the entire roof at once or whether to bid out the project in sections.
