WARREN, Pa. – Warren County has received a bid from the Industrial Welding and Fabrication Company out of Jamestown for repairs to the roof of the Warren County Jail.
County officials are looking at roofing material to be placed over the steel beams for security, as well as razor wire around the roof’s perimeter.
The bid from IWF was for $128,374 for the repairs to the jail, which comes in the wake of Michael Burham’s escape in July.
Commissioner Jeff Eggleston noted that the bid was “a good price,” with Commissioner Tricia Durbin saying the bid would be put on the agenda for approval at Wednesday’s (Oct. 25) Commissioners meeting.
“The faster we can get started, the better,” Durbin said.
