Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval to proceed with asbestos abatement and demolition of old Public Works site.



The Department of Public Works recently relocated all Public Works personnel to 550 S. 14th Street,  leaving the old site at 413 N. Boulevard vacant.  The long range plan for the vacated facility included demolition of existing structures.  Staff has completed an asbestos survey and report.  Staff has obtained firm costs for asbestos removal ($7,437.50) and demolition of structures ($48,647.00).  These activities will be performed by Central Environmental Services, Inc., who has a continuing contract with the City of Leesburg.    



1.  Authorize demolition activities as recommended, or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate


Fiscal Impact

Funding for this activity was not included in the Public Works budget and will need to be moved from other funding sources.  [wp1]
