Mold-Infested West Lafayette City Hall Building to be Demolished this Year

After remaining vacant for more than a year, the mold-infested West Lafayette city Hall building, Indiana, will be demolished this year.

Last spring, an engineering report confirmed a failing foundation as well as the presence of mold in the building due to damaged water pipes. The offices were then moved to the police station and Morton Community Center.

According to West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis (R), the building will be demolished in 2015, however, it is not decided yet if the city will re-construct the building or sell the land. “We want to make sure what we do isn’t just going to be the right fit for 2015, but for the future…As we all know working with technology — you can be anywhere and conduct meetings, you can be anywhere and have connectivity with the citizens you serve. We want to make sure if we choose to build a facility or choose to do something more creative it’s going to be what our community wants,” he said.

Mold spores were first detected in January this year, after which, the hall was completely vacated by the end of February.

According to Mayor John Dennis, the mold remediation crew has discovered that two layers of drywall in the basement are contaminated with mold.

Dennis further said “Each layer they see that has more contamination, each floor they go where they see it’s a little bit more damaged than we had originally anticipated… Our expectations are being somewhat diminished about ever being able to return to that facility.”
