October 21, 2010
LAWRENCE, MA — Ridding the Guilmette School of mold could cost as much as $2 million, according to the Eagle-Tribune.
An e-mail by interim school Superintendent Mary Lou Bergeron on Tuesday informed members a full cleanup of the school might cost "in the vicinity of $1.9 million," the article noted.
Bergeron met late yesterday with an industrial hygienist and representatives of the company involved in the cleanup; the school department''s insurance adjuster also was on the premises, the article stated.
According to the article, who is responsible and ultimately liable for the mold — the second such occurrence at the school in seven years — may wind up being contested in court.
