Several years ago a mold remediation was done for $55,000 dollars. Nabors said, “After the remediation, there was no follow-up performed, and no solution to the cause of the mold was established.

A proposal for Phase #1 to take a look at the building issues was prepared by Hunton Services. Their representative, Mike Bee, explained . . . .

Five gallons of water a day is being emptied from a humidifier in the sheriff’s office, and there are reports of mold on walls and furniture.  The cost of Phase #1, to move in the direction of correcting the problem, will be $11,235 dollars. Commissioners voted approval of funding Phase #1.
