RIDGWAY — The Elk County Board of Commissioners opened bids for repair of the roof at the courthouse annex building, but tabled a decision on awarding the work.

At the commissioners meeting Tuesday, seven bids were opened for work to repair the leaking roof, but quotes ranged from $146,600 to $262,081.

“There was a pretty large spread in the numbers,” Commissioner Dan Freeburg said Tuesday afternoon. “We’re really going to have to analyze them.”

Accompanying bids for alternative coping on brickwork from each of the seven companies were also opened. Bids for that work ranged from $9,400 to $30,480.

A decision on the bids is planned at the commissioners meeting Feb. 19.
