City Hall mold threatens health and budget

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

The health threat from black mold at Chiefland City Hall is forcing staff to move out by the end of next week and causing commissioners to cringe at estimated costs to fix the problem.

“Evidently, there’s a lot to do to address this mold,” City Manager Grady Hartzog said to commissioners at Monday night’s regular meeting, requesting they move $93,000 from the city’s solid waste and street paving account to the city’s general fund to pay for the cost of a temporary move, a 75-page analysis of the problem and, eventually, the removal of the mold and renovation of City Hall. An additional $7,000 was also requested to pay for materials to replace the roof of the Luther Calloway Public Library, which, though not related to the mold problem, can’t be put off any longer, according to Hartzog.
