This is an old story that's come back around again. Just for reference here's the original thread on the old Defenders of Modan site: My Work Environment.

Basically, as a short summary, they "fixed" the leaking roof at my office with a patch that was supposed to seal and protect it for about 5 years. This was in late 2006/early 2007.

Today, we received this email:

Quote:
Tri-Counties Roofing Company, supported by Tulare County Capital Projects, will begin replacing the roof at Government Plaza Building this Tuesday June 16, 2009. The contractor will be using the area indicated on the attached map as their parking area, storage area, work area, loading/unloading, etc. Please use caution when walking in this area and follow the alternate pathways that will be established for your safety. There may be a need to restrict access through doorways located in the area indicated on the attached map from time to time to provide safety to the employees as well. The project is scheduled to be completed in 60 calendar days with a completion date established as August 15, 2009. You will notice some noise from the work being completed on the roof, but nothing that should interfere with your work or meetings. The GAF manufactured PVC single ply roofing system has no odor involved in the installation process, nor should there be any smell related to any part of this roof replacement project. Should you have any questions or concerns during this project, please contact Capital Projects at 636-5005 or the RMA Help Desk at 737-4104.


So not only did they spend the money on a useless patch that lasted about a year and a half now, in the middle of a budget crisis, they have to spend more money to fix the roof that they should have just fixed the first fucking time around...
