After the renovation of an oratory in 2023, work is progressing well in Borne, where the roof of the church is being restored.

Initially, the work was not expected to be as important as it only concerned a small chapel at the rear of the building, as well as the bell tower. But after a complete assessment of the building, it was clear that the entire roof had to be renovated.

After the repair of the church roof, it will be the turn of the central square

“Jean-Pierre Chabalier, our deputy in charge of the work, went up to the roof and realized that there was a lot of damage. We therefore had to decide to carry out more important work, except that we also had to find money,” explains Annie Bouchet, mayor of the town.

The first magistrate was able to count on help from the Region, which subsidizes nearly 75% of the cost of the work (70,000 euros excluding tax). During the construction work which should be completed in mid-June, the church is not closed.

After the repair of the church roof, it will be the turn of the central square.Annie Bouchet was able to count on the support of Senator Laurent Duplomb and local and regional elected officials to put together her case.

Create a green space

The goal is to revegetate the whole area and redefine the parking spaces. The objective is to create a green space by removing as much asphalt as possible. Here again, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region is providing aid of 150,000 euros, supplemented by a State grant of the same amount. The total budget is between 400,000 and 450,000 euros.

The work is expected to begin in the fall of 2024 and be completed at the end of 2024/beginning of 2025.
