Where is the old DSS place?
What about some of the other older buildings? Some of those have been renovated and I would think that if there are concerns with this one, then there should have been concerns with the others.

The old DSS building is the "granite" faced building that's on the left, about the 4th or 5th building down past the depot, that some of us that have been there a while still think of as the old REA building.

After reading the entire aricle I was left wondering about if there had been a careful inspection of the building for asbestos before any bids went out. Also if the right people did the inspection. Seems like if there was a question of asbestos in the building that an outside consult firm dealing with asbestos would have been involved. Were they brought in or was it an attempt to do the work as cheaply as possible?
If it was abestos, will the town now be responsible for any health problems for the workers? Hm, millions of dollars down the road in ligations due to cheapness?

I think the county tried to give the building to one of the mental health providers and they would not take it for some reason..... The town was foolish enough to fall for it.

You got it! Nothing is new as you have the powers that be that rule with an iron fist and you have the transplants that think that they are going to ride herd and change things in Marshall. Usually the transplant quietly slinks out of town or is ridden out on a rail. Just another day!

What is a transplant? Why is there this anger so strong, it makes no real sense to reject others who wish to make the town more livable. Need i say, clean-it- up.
