Grove City, OH — Along with crime, a central Ohio police department is battling another enemy: mold.
Engineers discovered an extensive mold problem inside the building that houses the Grove City Police Department, 10TV’s Glenn McEntyre reported on Tuesday. According to police, the mold was discovered throughout the building’s duct work last fall.
Plans to get rid of the mold include ripping out and replacing all the building’s duct work, McEntyre reported.
Police said they were taking the situation seriously, even though the mold inside the building was not considered to be toxic.
“Mold is an irritant to some people,” said Grove City police Capt. Steve Robinette. “Obviously we know that mold is not supposed to be in our duct work. We want to have it removed and make sure that we provide the cleanest environment we can for the people working in this building.”
Work to remove the duct work at the police station is expected to begin in June and take about four months, McEntyre reported.
