Westchester | The Westchester Elementary School Board on Monday gave approval Fresh Maintenance to preform mold cleanup at the Junior High School.
“It’s underneath the roof,” Board President Joan Potts said. “We don’t really know exactly how much there is.”It’s not a big mold cleanup, but we know that it’s there”, Potts said the board found out about the mold about a month ago and that it does not believe the mold presents a health risk.
The plan is for the mold cleaning to begin prior to the start of the school year.
The board voted 4-2 to accept the lowest responsible bidder to remove the mold. This was Fresh Maintenance. Potts’ said time is of the essence so teachers can get into their classrooms, and Fresh Maintenance has the crew and equipment to do the job quickly.
