The Boys and Girls Club still doesn't know yet if they'll have to replace the gym floor following last week's flooding. The contractor working on the roof didn't cover it completely so some rain and hail got in when a storm moved through. Parks and Rec owns the building and the board got an update during Tuesday night's meeting. Dallas Brown serves on the board: “It'll be a couple weeks before we find out the extent of the damage. Right now, I guess its 33% humidity and it needs to be down to 7% to 8% to be normal. So we're watching the water level in the building.” If a new gym floor is needed, the million dollar price tag, would be paid by insurance. Bend Parks and Rec authorized emergency contracts to repair any immediate damage at the club.
