H-L awards asbestos contract

The Hopewell-Loudon Board of Education met in special session prior to the commencement ceremony Sunday afternoon. The board approved the low bid submitted by Ohio Technical Services for asbestos removal in the old building. The bid of $262,570 was below estimate.

The asbestos removal is slated to begin June 17. All items purchased at the June 8 auction must be removed by that date. All remaining free-standing items in the old building will be available at that auction.
