La Salle council approves asbestos removal from house

Elizabeth Edwards
NewsTribune Reporter

La Salle City Council recently approved bids for asbestos removal for a house at 334 Fourth St. for $15,000 and the former La Salle National Bank concrete drive-through location for more than $9,000, said Donald Aleksy, city economic development director.

Aleksy said the city plans to tent the structures during the asbestos removal, as approved by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Glynn Demolition & Excavating Inc. will take care of the asbestos removal and demolition of the house.

The company, Apex, received bids for asbestos removal of the drive-through location, but the council will vote on removal of the old bank drive-through structure at a later date.

The council also approved:
*A request from The Center for Youth & Family Solutions to have its Fay’s Pork Chop Bar-B-Que 4:30-7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21 at 815 Second St. 
* A request from La Salle-Peru Township High School Band Parent Association for a door-to-door candy sale 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12 in La Salle.

Creative and smart move for the bank and its previous owners, to sell the drive-thru property to the city, so the TAXPAYERS pick up the tab for improvements.
Enough. There are many who are seeing these activities although they may not comment.
Use our taxpayer dollars for direct value to the constituents. That is the legacy we are looking and paying for.
