Federal grant will help pay for new roof at middle school


The state, which administers the federally funded Community Development Block Grant program, has awarded Wrangell $695,000 toward a new roof at the middle school.

The borough assembly designated the school roof — most of which is almost 30 years old — as its top priority for the grant program this year.

The project is estimated at about $1.4 million.

“We would have to provide the balance to make it a whole project,” Amber Al-Haddad, the borough’s capital facilities director, said Feb. 28.

“It’s possible we can get the (middle school) roof done this year, but we have to act fast,” she said.
