Fairfax County (Mesothelioma Cancer News) – An asbestos and water leak in a Fairfax County public safety building has raised concerns. As reported by The Washington Post, The Massey Building, which previously housed executive offices of the government and later became the location for Fairfax police and fire departments, is said to be in significant disrepair.
José A. Comayagua Jr., facilities management director for the county, is quoted in the report as stating in regards to the shape of the building, “It’s a maintenance nightmare… There’s so many deficiencies with the building that it makes it extremely difficult to do any meaningful repairs.”
As noted in the report, areas of the building were closed two times over the last year due to flooding and other dangerous working conditions. Renovations or demolition of the building would reportedly cost several millions of dollars.
