Roof collapse in Girard

Tons of snow on the roof of the Girard Township Maintenance Garage caused the roof of the building to collapse. 

The incident happened earlier this week after that record amount of snowfall.  Despite the damage to the garage, all of the township equipment, including the snowplows were able to be moved outside before the collapse.

Girard Township Supervisor, Bill Felege, says, "As we were standing there, you could hear the boards start to crack, the ceiling had a 6-inch bow in it, during the night it came down all the way".

Some area farmers have offered space in their barns to store township equipment that is not used in the winter months.
