Commissioners shocked by asbestos removal quote

A preliminary quote of $200,000 to $250,000 for the removal of asbestos from the old county hospital building, most of which is in the flooring of the facility, shocked members of the Franklin County Commissioners Court (Court) at their meeting and workshop Monday.

The verbal quote came from Farmers Environmental Services, who did partial work on the building during earlier renovations. A proposal to demolish the building was tabled. See the March 28 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for information from actions taken by the Court.
