Brookfield trustees have awarded contracts for repair work at both Brookfield Fire Department stations.
One of the contractors, Holko Enercon Inc., Fowler, has replaced the plastic roof of Station 18, the main
station on Route 7.
Holko’s price, $43,189, was the lowest of five, said Fire Chief David Masirovits. The price included an
extra $1,949 to extend the warranty on materials and labor from 15 to 20 years, he said.
Trustee Dan Suttles said he was worried about crossing the sealed bid threshold of $50,000 if there is
sheeting that needs to be replaced.
On May 3, Masirovits reported that Holko had found damaged sheeting and that it cost $836 to replace it. The trustees approved the extra expense, plus $210 in building permit fees.
promoThe trustees also hired Jeemco of New Wilmington, Pa., to work on Station 51, which is at the
intersection of Route 82, Addison Road and Broadway Avenue.
“It’s been in disrepair from some type of moisture and weather that has gotten into that wall and caused
some severe rust around the windows,” Masirovits said.
Jeemco will replace the west wall of the metal building, replace insulation in the ceiling, and install an
exhaust fan with an intake in the bay area “to try and cut down on some of the moisture that does build up
in that metal building,” he said.
Jeemco’s price, $13,500, was the lowest of three. The fire department’s insurance is paying $4,970 of the
cost due to the determination that an ice dam caused some of the damage, Masirovits said.
Masirovits said May 26 that Jeemco was waiting for materials before commencing the work.
