NATCHEZ, Mississippi — Adams County has hired a new contractor for its jail roof repair project after the contractor originally hired for the project lost its certification with a roof manufacturer.
The Natchez Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/1yzYYJN ) the county had previously awarded a bid to Tru Solutions of Memphis to repair the jail roof, which experts have said is a key step in addressing environmental concerns such as mold in the building, which also houses the Adams County Sheriff's Office.
Architect Johnny Waycaster recommended on Monday the board award the project to Mandal's Construction of Gulfport for $168,414. He says the engineer's estimate for the project was $165,000.
