Asbestos find may
MILLERSBURG -- School board members are surprised -- and more than a little unhappy -- with news that asbestos was discovered during building and renovation work on the secondary campus recently.
The discovery could affect the time for the building project, which began in earnest in early June.
At the board’s June 22 meeting, Project Manager Craig Zimmerman, along with another engineering contract representative from Crabtree Rohrbaugh Associates, reported that the asbestos was found while workers were involved in removing ceilings in the high school.
