For Immediate Release:
Date: July 20, 2016
To: All NGO’s, Public Officials and Public
Good Morning Everyone,
Please be advised that at this time we are requesting that demolitions of homes or businesses are not conducted. We understand that this may cause some issues but there are certain requirements that must be followed. Currently, the State and Federal agencies are working to develop a program that will ensure that all requirements are met and that all required permits are in place.
One of the main requirements will be for asbestos testing. Please also be aware that no debris from a demo house or business can be placed out for curbside pickup. The company who has the flood debris contract has been advised to not pick up any demo debris. That is not allowed under the current debris contract. Once the program has been established, our office will release that information and all the requirements needed in order to begin the demolition process.
We appreciate your patience and understanding in the matter. Thank you for you cooperation and assistance.
Al Whitaker, Director
Greenbrier County Homeland Security and Emergency Management
