Preventive maintenance. The roof caving in on the old power plant could have been prevented through routine maintenance. However, there is more to the story than just a \u2018tsk tsk\u2019 to city officials.\nThe city is in a bit of a pickle. It is too expensive to keep the power plant running and maintenance on a building is time consuming and expensive. However, the city still owns it and uses the facility for storage.\nAlways have an exit strategy and the city may have had one, it was just bad luck of wind, rain and a storm hitting the roof at the wrong place and time. Or neglect on a building not in use resulted in a mess to clean up.\nOnce the building was not going to be in use anymore, a long-term plan for the building devised and potential uses for the facility part of the plan initiated. There is not a lot you can re-purpose that building for if you are the city.\nThe city may have had a plan, but regardless, something needs to be done with the building.\nThere is not much you can do with a large building like that other than storage, but a roofing issue is major and now the city has to determine what to do with the site short-term and long-term.\nIt is a quandary for sure for city officials. It will be interesting to see what comes of the situation from city officials.
