On Monday night, Windsor City Council will be asked to approve two capital expenses for work to be undertaken on the Capitol Theatre. These improvement are part of an agreement the city made with the Windsor Symphony when they signed a lease for the building on July 4th.
Work must be undertake to seal the exterior of the building structure, particularly along the west wall, to prevent moisture from entering the newly proclaimed symphony hall. This work has to be undertaken before any restoration work on the inside can begin to repair water damage. Siding will enclose most the the remaining brick face wall. The total cost for this is $232,151 with the contract being awarded to Gillett Sheet Metal.
They city will also spend $216,627 on repairs to the most deteriorated sections of roof on the theater. Kingsville Roofing was the lowest bid for this project.
