Espanola council has given approval to a tender to repair the roof at the complex and the installation of a new dehumidifier.
Public Works manager Joel Yusko says a roof assessment was carried out last year to see what was causing ice damming and summer condensation.
He says corrosion was found and the report identified that some work had to be carried out to repair and prevent any further damage.
Council had approved the tender be awarded to SRS Contracting for $494,400 plus taxes.
He adds the municipality will receive up to 25% funding for the project from the NOHFC Community Rural and Enhancement Fund.
Yusko says the project includes replacing the dehumidifier, installing a reflective ceiling, repairing damaged flashing, and installing a heat trace along the eave to mitigate ice damming.
