This project provides for the replacement of roofs at fire and rescue stations where existing roofs are in poor and deteriorating condition. Routine roof maintenance and minor repairs are funded in the Operating Budget. One station roof replacement is programmed annually. Roof replacements are coordinated with Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service and are consistent with the roof condition survey and facility assessment information to establish priorities.

Cost Change

The increase is due to the addition of FY19 and FY20 expenditures, partially offset by the capitalization of prior year expenditures.


The age of many fire and rescue stations creates the need for this ongoing project. Additional factors determining the need for roof replacement are: design life span of roof materials, present roof condition, long-term utilization plans for the facility, and the probability of continued repairs. A roof condition survey was completed in Spring 2005.


The following stations are planned for roof replacement projects: Laytonsville #17; Damascus #13; Hillandale #24; Hillandale #12; Sandy Spring #40, Rockville #31; Burtonsville #15; and Cabin John #10.

Fiscal Note

Debt service for this project will be financed with Consolidated Fire Tax District Funds.


Expenditures will continue indefinitely.
