Courthouse Gets Asbestos Cleanup

February 24, 2012

NEWPORT CITY – Cleanup crews were busy Friday removing asbestos flooring at the Orleans County District Courthouse. Friday was a regular furlough day for court staff so court was not in session.
The tiles were in the lobby area of the courthouse, Al Simard, district facility manager for Buildings and General Services, said. The lobby is the only place in the building with asbestos tiles.
“We’re going to get the asbestos out of the way because it’s hazardous,” he said. The state will probably replace the flooring with carpeting. “The least expensive thing we can do.”
