City wants asbestos check done before purchasing Elks Lodge

Asbestos concerns have lead city officials to delay the purpose of Elks Lodge in order to see if the cost to take care of the building will be too high or not.

City commissioners want to purchase the building as a part of the revitalization project of the downtown marina.

The city manager has put off purchasing the building for $290,000 until tests have been run on the building to determine whether or not the building has asbestos and how much it has. Demolition of the building is supposed to cost nearly $17,000 and if asbestos is found, additional fees will be needed to remove it properly.

Asbestos can be very dangerous if disturbed because it can then be inhaled into the lungs. If you or a loved one has been exposed to asbestos during a renovation project, contact us for more information about the toxic material or visit our web site at to answer your questions.

School district receives funds to have asbestos removed from high school

The Davison School District in Michigan has tapped into a general fund in order to get the asbestos removed from the high school before renovations are scheduled.

The project will be done by mid-July and Quality Abatement Services Inc. in Detroit was chosen to do the work. The asbestos must be removed before the approved technology upgrades are to be done.

Some school board members were shocked that asbestos could still be in the high school after they have already removed much of it. The district finance director said that there is less than five percent of asbestos in the school and environmental requirements state that it must be done by a certified asbestos abatement contractor.

Joplin tornado may have left asbestos exposed

The tornado that occurred in Joplin, Mo. and ripped through the area destroying homes and businesses may still be affecting the town. Officials think that environmental hazards may now be a concern.

Older buildings that were damaged in the storm may contain asbestos. When left alone, asbestos is not a a danger, but when it is disturbed and can become airborne.

After it is airborne, it can be ingested by people nearby and then can lead to lung cancer or asbestos-related diseases. Experts have said that this can happen in the cleanup process of natural disasters. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sent teams to investigate the Joplin area, but have found no serious pollution issues at this time.
