WOODSTOCK, NY — The town board has agreed to pay nearly $14,000 in costs needed for additional asbestos abatement involved with the town hall renovation project, according to the Daily Freeman.
The amount was discussed at a board meeting during which officials were told that tests found the presence of 20 to 25 percent more asbestos than indicated when the project was bid earlier in the year, the article stated.
"Nurzia Construction based their bid on a report by Alpine Environmental Services that was done in 2007," said town Supervisor Jeremy Wilber.
"After they made their bid and it was accepted we found that because there were more sensitive detecting devices and because we had expanded the area, that we needed another survey. Alpine came back and they found more asbestos," Wilber said.
