Austin neighborhood raises concern over building containing asbestos

An asbestos-laden building that will be demolished at the corner of Fairway Street and Montopolis Drive has raised concerns that people in the area may be exposed to the harmful fibers, reported on February 18.

Danny Perez, who was aware that the vacant building contained asbestos, expressed concern that the neighborhood was not properly warned by the City of Austin that the building will be torn down anytime soon. However, A & R Demolition is set to demolish the establishment with M and Jo Abatement assigned to remove the asbestos. A representative supervising the asbestos removal process said workers will wear dusk masks while working.
