ABOUT 15 WORKERS could be found on the roof of the Monticello Police Station this week, replacing the entire roof due to the massive leaks and cave-ins that forced the department into the neighboring village hall. Work will continue next week.

Police Roof
On the Mend

By Nathan Mayberg
MONTICELLO — February 13, 2004 – The replacement of the Monticello Police Department building’s roof began on Wednesday morning.
Village Mayor Gary Sommers said he hoped to have the roof completely replaced by the end of next week.
The roof caved in about two and a half months ago during a storm. Sommers had planned to have it done by now, but the roofing company was not able to meet his schedule.
Plywood sheeting was put on this week by several workers as they removed the old parts of the roof in freezing temperatures.
After the police building’s roof is completed, Sommers said he intended to replace the roof connecting the police department and the village hall. Eventually, the two different roof sections of the Village Hall will be replaced, he added.
