Fulton County Commissioners received an update on repairs and inspections at county buildings April 7.
Maintenance Supervisor Todd Bingham reported his office is continuing to implement a planned maintenance system including exterior hazard inspections and preventative maintenance, interior painting and flooring needs, and vehicle servicing. Housekeeping is doing very well, they also inspect for needed repairs.
Among the projects are the installation of a guard rail at the scale house. The fire panel at the Health Department has been installed and while its working, it needs to be tied into county systems.
Bingham has been approved to proceed by the Engineer for lighting and ceiling repairs and upgrades at the sign shop. He has received quotes on replacing the drinking fountains at the Detwiler Building, and begun planned phasing of replacements.
Bingham is receiving quotes on the courthouse tuck point project. He said all of the heat valves (47) at the Administration Building need to be replaced. He is attempting to coordinate with heating requirements as the system will need drained.
Three of the valves are leaking and will be difficult to get to because the work is so time consuming, Bingham said.
-The Robert Fulton Building exterior lights have been replaced with LED;
-Roofing and gutters projects at the Detwiler Building bid packets are being drafted;
-The Board of Elections is in need of a flag pole and quotes are in, waiting on their decision;
-The facility report shows 125 work orders in progress, 101 complete and 721 closed for the first quarter.
