MFPD opens two bids for roof at No. 6 house

Board to consider approval of bid for new roof April 16

By Mike Anthony

The Mehlville Fire Protection District Board of Directors opened two bids last week for replacement of the roof at the district’s No. 6 engine house, 6870 Telegraph Road.

Geissler Roofing Co. of Belleville, Ill., submitted a bid of $35,300, and Lakeside Roofing Co. of Collinsville, Ill., submitted a bid of $28,958.

The district’s request for proposals, or RFP, also included an alternate — installing an “ice and water shield at all gutter edges prior to felt and shingles.”

Geissler’s price for the alternate was $400, while Lakeside’s price for the alternate was $610.

The specifications of the RFP call for the roof replacement to be completed by May 1.

At the April 3 meeting, Chief Brian Hendricks said he and his staff will review the bids for compliance with the RFP’s specifications and make a recommendation to the board at its next meeting.

The board will meet at 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 16, at the district’s headquarters, 11020 Mueller Road, Green Park.
