New library roof will cost $410,210

Manteca’s elected city leaders are expected to authorize spending $647,000 on three wear and tear projects when they met Tuesday.

The City Council meeting is taking place three hours earlier at 4 p.m. due to National Night Out. The council meets at the Civic Center, 1001 W. Center St.

The projects are:

*Seeking bids for replacing the leaking 20,000-square-foot roof on the Manteca Library along with replacing dry rot and other work. The work is estimated to cost $410,210 or more than four times what the original library cost to build in 1962. Development fees will cover the tab.

*Award a bid for $88,000 to replace two exterior stairways at the Manteca Golf Course Clubhouse that have sustained dry rot and other issues. The general fund is covering the cost.

*Award a bid for $149,416 to replace the Manteca Transit Center shade structure that was damaged by a truck on Aug. 26, 2017. The capital improvement account will cover the work while the city will seek reimbursement from the insurance company that covers the firm that caused the damage.

The three endeavors underscore what it takes to keep Manteca’s assets — buildings, recreation facilities, fire hydrants,  streets, utility lines, and such — in shape beyond when maintenance issues come up or damage is done to city property.
