Detroit (Mesothelioma Cancer News) – Demolition plans for 3,000 buildings in Detroit have been halted due to law violation warnings related to the project. As reported by The Detroit Free Press, the state Department of Natural Resources and Environment has alleged that the city failed to adhere to regulations pertaining to asbestos removal as well as requirements of providing notification about demolition plans to the state.
Robert McCann, a spokesman for the Department of Natural Resources and Environment, is quoted in the report as stating of the issue, “We found out about the whole project in the Free Press… Our staff saw it and raised their eyebrows. They aren’t supposed to be doing this without taking the proper steps.”
Carla Henderson, director of Buildings and Safety Engineering Department, is further quoted in the report as stating of the allegations, “We know from this point forward that the way we operated status quo in the past is unacceptable… When this was brought to our attention, we ceased immediately. The public safety and welfare of our residents is the No. 1 priority of this administration.”
