At Monday morning’s session of Walker County Commissioners, Commissioners discussed an issue of a high moisture content of the floor slab of the new County Jail which is above a standard norm that would result in a harmful effect on the VCT, or vinyl composite tile, builders are planning to put over the slab.
Among others, jail architect Ken Burns addressed the issue for commissioners . . . .
Commissioners approved having the moisture barrier put down with the stipulation that documented testing on the flooring be conducted by the Terracon company. Twenty-four-thousand square feet will be covered at cost of $32,630 dollars. There is a ten year warranty included.
