Placeholder Image
Does an awning need to look good as long as it does its job? That was the question recently on the minds of members of the county’s Building and Grounds Committee.The members met to discuss the future of a canopy at the Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency (UCHRA) located at the rear of the Administrative Building.Greg Bowdoin, county maintenance supervisor, told committee members he had received a quote for a new canvas-covered canopy to cover the doorway at UCHRA from Nashville Tent and Awning for somewhere between $2,000 and $2,100.Bowdoin said wind had almost completely destroyed the awning presently on site.“They come, take it down, take it to Nashville and put a new material awning on,” said Bowdoin.Commissioner Dwight O’Neal asked, “Would the committee consider purchasing an aluminum awning? I wonder if aluminum would have more longevity.
