BROOKSVILLE — The roof replacement on the Bracken County E911 building is complete.
Bracken County Judge-Executive Tina Teegarden recently posted an update on the Bracken County Judge-Executive’s Facebook page that said the repairs have been made, but work will need to continue inside the building.
“Bracken County Dispatch building, which also houses Bracken County Historical Society and the Bracken County Emergency Management received a new roof,” she said. “The demo/remodel will continue on the inside of the building as time and weather allows. I will keep the county posted on Facebook and there will be an open house once complete. Thanks for all the employees and officials that take time out of their schedules, donating their time to help. I appreciate all of you.”
According to Teegarden, the roof was leaking and caused damage inside the building.
Those assisting with the project included county employees and volunteers.
“One of the custodians have put his blood, sweat and tears into this project,” she said. “We have dispatch employees, deputies, my administrative assistant. There are a lot of people coming in on their off time to finish this.”
There were also inmates assisting, according to Teegarden.
“Charlie Clos, the Bracken County jailer, has also brought over inmates to help with the work,” she said.
