WORTHINGTON — With the nod from Worthington City Council Monday, the Thompson Hotel project will continue — this time with a new roof.

The council authorized the city to let for bids to remove and replace approximately 15,500 square feet of the current Thompson Hotel roof — a project that was estimated to cost $350,000 prior to asbestos being discovered.

“That will drive up the cost more than what we were expecting,” said Jason Brisson, Worthington community/economic director.

The proposal — developed by Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc. — will consist of 60 mil EPDM single-ply membrane and new metal roof edge flashing, specified at a 20-year warranty.

The cost associated with roof replacement will be paid in part by a housing fund generated by tax increment financing (TIF) at the Thompson Hotel property. The total cost of the project will be assessed against the property.

The motion included the opportunity for council to receive bids for roof replacement proposals other than the project identified (like a pitch design) for a potentially lower cost.

Bidding period will be open through Dec. 19, with considerations made at the Dec. 26 city council meeting.

Council member Larry Janssen was the lone ‘no’ vote.

A total of approximately $450,000 in property assessments is expected from the combination of projects including roof replacement, pest remediation, attorney fees and other costs aimed at improving the living standard.
