At first the ECT gang thought the roofs on the County owned Lake Creek Apartments were more reminiscent of the roofs found in the village of Anatevka, or perhaps Alabama or Mississippi these days…
So the ECT gang investigated…and here is our report.
The condition of the roof shown here is by no means an exception to the majority of roofs found at Lake Creek today. The recent photo was taken from I-70 eastbound – from the west end of Edwards, where these apartments are located on the north side of the Eagle River. Several other building roofs in the complex were damaged as well.
Side Note: Interestingly all the roofs in the County’s Miller Ranch (Edwards) affordable housing complex are 100% intact near as the ECT can tell…
The ECT folks contacted the County’s Housing Director – Jill Klosterman last week and asked what the County’s plans where to repair the roofs.
Here – verbatim is Ms. Klosterman’s response to the ECT – “Thank you for your questions. Replacement shingles were ordered immediately after the damage was discovered after the windstorm last month. The shingles arrived on site today (6MAY2011) and replacement of the damaged roofs will begin within the next few days.”
The ECT is delighted to report this story. The ECT contributors will be anxious to show our readers photos from next weeks (in progress?) roof repairs. The ECT, Ms. Klosterman would also be happy to print the names of local contractors (jobs created?) that have been hired by the County to make the necessary repairs.
The ECT more than happy to report any/all new jobs being created in Eagle County these days.
