Lengthy discussion at the last Grant City Council meeting led to a bid being accepted to replace the roof at Hastings Memorial Library because of leakage problems.
Weathercraft Roofing Company of Ogallala was awarded the job at $29,920.
The work will be completed by May 15 according to specifications of the bid.
Much of the project cost will be covered by an insurance payment received due to storm damage. Only one other bid was received.
Golf Course Well
It was also decided by council at the regular meeting on Feb. 12 to let bids for parts and repair of the well at the city-owned Pheasants Run Golf Course north of town.

Another item of unfinished business included formal action by council to adopt the one-and-six year street program.
