Gahr High School Roofing
In response to an email inquiry dated August 13
August 13, 2014
Good Morning Mr. Ao,
As a member of the public, you always have the right to ask questions during the public comments section of
the Board meeting, so please don't feel like you need to apologize for anything.
I will work on this and try to respond to your questions as soon as I can.
Thank you and have a good day,
Dear Mr. Nguyen,
Sorry I had to ask questions about the Gahr High roofing in public, not in private. There were reasons for
that, which I will not get into. In any case, this is a public matter, and the questions center around the
cause of the apparent roof leak and water damage. We haven't had any decent rain for years, so the water damage
has to have happened several years ago when the roof was much younger. People just don't believe this can happen
to a roof newly installed in 1999 or 2002. They are not convinced a 12-15 old roof "has outlived useful life"
and needs to be replaced again. There has to be some explanation.
Attached please find a copy of the questions I asked during public
hearing yesterday. I look forward to hearing from you.
