TUPELO – The Lee County School Board on Tuesday approved three projects to repair leaks on roofs at Saltillo Primary and Shannon Primary schools.

Tremco was awarded the contract for the work for a total of $8,850. That includes $2,400 on the roof over the Saltillo Primary second-grade wing, $3,850 over the school’s first-grade wing and $2,600 at Shannon Primary. The work involves resealing the spots where the water drains off the roof.

Both buildings were constructed in 2005, but the company that manufacturers the material that was used is bankrupt, meaning the district can’t use its warranty for the repairs.
