Brief: Legislative Building in Frederiksted Closed for Mold Repairs

July 7, 2006 — Due to the excessive noise, dust, paint fumes and building repair associated with the mold remediation at the Frederiksted Legislative Complex, the Senate building has been temporarily closed until Monday, according to a release from Sen. Ronald Russell's office.
Offices will officially reopen to constituents at 8 a.m.
According to the release, the complex is now undergoing repairs to the roof in order to stop future problems with drainage and water leakage, a critical factor in preventing future mold accumulation.
Russell commented, "We are taking a step-by-step approach according to the working conditions and work environment of the building. After a thorough assessment, the decision has been made to temporarily close the facility. We must consider the health and well-being of all legislative employees as this important repair moves forward."
