The LaFayette Public Safety building desperately needed a new roof, so a metal roof that will last 40 years is under construction, public safety director Tommy Freeman said.
Freeman said the city hired Ken Maples & Son Construction to put on the roof — at the lowest bid, $96,150.
The original roof, Freeman said, had a severe leaking problems and the city found the most cost-effective meas-ure with the new roof.
The new roof should be finished in about six weeks.
