As we all know the recreation room at Coral Reef Park has serious structural issues that have taken a long time to address and fix.  While we await for your direction on how to best proceed, the building was temporarily shored and roof leaks were repaired.  However, the building has developed a number of new roof leaks and we should not continue to keep it open for public use especially now that we have entered a new, potentially active hurricane season.  I am therefore recommending that we proceed with demolishing the existing structure.  We will issue an Invitation to Bid for the demolition and also to reestablish the electrical connections.  We can replace the building with a temporary trailer as a short-term measure until a final decision is made on a new recreation room or center. 
The picture below shows the buckets that staff is using to collect the water from 2 of the 5 current roof leaks.
