The meeting is scheduled for this Thursday, September 17th, 2009 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Moose Lodge at 50 Grove St.
Salem Suede’s dangerousness had been in the press recently. The city will be meeting about it tomorrow, and demolition will be a topic discussed, though a date for the demolition has not been set. The siding is being removed currently, as it needs to be addressed by specialists in accordance with hazardous materials removal requirements, as it contains asbestos. Concern was raised by the pubic about contamination, and a request was made to look at the documentation, and as well, about public notification.
