Events center roof springs leak

The Curry County Events Center roof is leaking.

Event Center Manager Kevin Jolley said the small leaks around the edge of the roof can be easily fixed with some caulk.

The repair will not cost the county anything because it is a warranty issue, he said.

Jolley said the problem only recently became obvious because the center opened in April 2009, but didn’t get much rain in its first year.

Recent and unusual deluges have shown the need for added caulking.
