"Renovating the roof of the town hall really wasn’t a luxury," said mayor peter kornell (G) at monday’s town council meeting. After a good six months of construction, the renovation of the town hall roof is now complete. During construction work, it became apparent that several beams were rotten and water was seeping through the roof in numerous places.
With the help of light pictures, architect roland schicker served the city council members the various construction phases, which began in may with the removal of the old slates. Because the slate contained asbestos, it had to be disposed of permanently. The roof beam was then uncovered. The carpenters replaced the damaged beams. Even before the roof could be re-roofed, a storm caused water damage to the building. According to kornell, strong gusts of wind had torn away the protective tarpaulins and allowed moisture to seep in. "We got off lightly," says the city leader. It had rained ten liters per square meter.
