City, insurance company need final estimates
By Bert Lehman
The city of Clintonville and the city’s insurance company have yet to settle the damage claims stemming from the December fire at the municipal swimming pool.
Clintonville Parks and Recreation Director Justin McAuly told the Ad Hoc Pool Committee that City Administrator Chuck Kell gave him an estimate of what the city’s insurance company was willing to pay for the contents destroyed in the fire.
That estimate was around $16,000.
“I was a little concerned because I thought that was a little low, so I asked the insurance company for an itemized list, which I thought we should have received in the first place,” McAuly said. “They still have not yet responded.”
McAuly said once he receives the itemized list from the insurance company, he will compare it to the itemized list he has assembled.
McAuly also told the committee that the city is waiting for cost estimates to repair the roof of the building damaged by the fire. He said Miron Construction is ready to move forward with the project.
The insurance company had an engineer look at the roof, but the company manufacturing the Spancrete for the roof has requested another engineer look at the building, McAuly said.
“Once the engineer comes in then the Spancrete company can give their estimate and Miron can turn everything in, and then we’ll have a number on the complete project,” McAuly said.
He added that Miron is willing to make the repairs to the roof of the building.
Once the city has the cost estimates for the building repairs, the city council will decide how to proceed.
