Louisiana Middle School Facing Budgetary Concerns Due to Asbestos Removal

A Central, Louisiana middle school has to deal with budgetary concerns raised by asbestos removal.

According to CBS WAFB 9 in Baton Rouge, the demolition of 70-year-old Central Middle School, a project that has been in the works for a while, has run into a roadblock recently, because asbestos was discovered in the building, and the original bid did not take into account the cost of asbestos removal.

“We have issues to deal with,” stated Central Schools Superintendent Michael Faulk. “The asbestos abatement, the actual demolition of buildings, clearing off all the debris.”

Reportedly, the original bid for the project was $300,000. If asbestos removal had been included, the original bid would have been $450,000.
