BEECH GROVE, IN — The Beech Grove City Hall
is a health inspector''s nightmare and an unfortunate reality for city employees, according to WTHR-TV
Inspectors cited the building for a number of health violations after discovering puddles on tables, rotting ceiling tiles, warped walls and carpets and mold on every level from the vents to the water-logged basement, the story stated.
Although Mayor Donald Wright
and his assistants, along with city council meetings and court hearings have all been moved to alternate locations, some city employees are still required to work in the hazardous, mold-infested building, the story noted.
According to the story, city council members say they were told the meetings were being moved because the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system wasn''t working; there was no mention of a mold problem.
City Council Member Ed Bell
said: "It was clearly obvious that mold was the reason we were moving out. It''s a slap in the face. We''ve asked the mayor to come before the council and answer questions but he refuses to do that. He wants to do it in private but we''ve had enough of the private. They''re trying to put a Band-Aid on the situation when it''s a serious problem."
