SLOPE OR NOT TO SLOPE? New high school roofing being determined

Staff Writer

COLUMBIA CITY — To slope or not to slope?
That is the question Whitley County Consolidated Schools officials are considering when planning for the new Columbia City High School.
After having issues with Indian Springs Middle School’s roof and CCHS’s current roof, school board members and administrators are trying to ensure the same problems don’t happen in the new building.
Unfortunately, architects aren’t able to provide a clear answer.
Architects for the new Columbia City High School, which is set to open in the fall of 2020, said roofs are typically a big struggle in new schools, with no one design that is flawless.
Complete details of this issue are reported in the print edition of Wednesday's print edition of The Post & Mail, available at newsstands and convenience stores throughout Whitley County.
