YORKVILLE — The Kendall County Board has approved more than $800,000 for a new roof, generator, heating, ventilation and air conditioning at the county building here.
The board accepted a $757,900 bid from Commercial Mechanical Inc. to do the job, and also approved a contract with the company. The board also approved a $74,320 engineering contract with Kluber Architects and Engineers.
The total approved for the project was $832,220.
The office building on Fox Street just off downtown Yorkville was built in the 1970s. Jim Smiley, Kendall’s facilities management director, said it still has the original roof, which has been patched and repaired during the past 40 years.
Money for the project will come from the county’s capital improvement fund, according to County Board member John Purcell, the Finance Committee chairman.
