Expect to see construction begun on replacing the roof over the Batavia City Centre Mall by September.
City Manager Dr. Martin Moore says the city has awarded a $665,000 contract to Grove Roofing of Buffalo to replace the roof over the mall concourse and remove the skylights. Moore also said that National Grid is giving the city 165-thousand dollars for new LED lighting in the mall concourse.
The ink on that contract wasn’t even dry when Batavia Police say the mall concourse roof was vandalized.
BPD has released pictures of three of three individuals who may have information about the case. Those photos are on our website.
Police say vandals did not actually get into the mall but did cause damage the skylights.
This would have happened sometime last weekend. If you have any information, call Batavia Police.
