The City of North Charleston to demolish 24 homes with asbestos

STARTS AT 7 PM TONIGHT. IT WILL Previous UNTIL 8: 30 PM AT ST. JOHN’S HIGH SCHOOL. ON MAIN ROAD. THE MEETING WILL FOCUS ON THE JOHNS ISLAND PORTION AT MAYBANK HIGHWAY AND WILL INCLUDE MAIN ROAD. REPORTS OF HOMES IN NORTH CHARLESTON WITH FABRICS CONTAINING ASBESTOS. PUBLIC SAFETY AND HEALTH CONCERNS ARE INCLUDED. WE SPOKE WITH CITY OFFICIALS ON WHAT THEY ARE PLANNING TO DO ABOUT THE STRUCTURES. TOOK 24 DILAPIDATED AND CARBON HOMES IN NORTH CHARLESTON HAVE SPARKED CONCERN FROM THE CITY. Reporter: THE HOMES ARE VACANT AND POSE A THREAT TO PUBLIC SAFETY. A LOT OF HOMES HAVE VACANCY AND WILL END UP BEING FIRE HAZARDS. Reporter: COUNCILMAN MICHAEL BROWN SAYS IN ADDITION TO FIRE HAZARDS AND MAGNETS FOR VAGRANTS, MANY HOMES ARE BUILT WITH ASBESTOS MATERIALS.FOR THESE REASONS, THE CITY OF NORTH CHARLESTON HAS SELECTED THESE HOMES FOR DEMOLITION. WHEN YOU LOOK AT ASBESTOS AND HOW IT CAN CAUSE HEALTH EFFECTS FOR OTHERS, THOSE ARE THE PRIMARY THINGS WHERE YOU SAY, HOW CAN I CONTROL IT? HOW CAN I CONTAIN IT? Reporter: COUNCILMAN BROWN SAYS ASBESTOS ABATEMENT PROCEDURES WILL BE FOLLOWED IN THE DEMOLITION. TO CONTROL RELEASE OF THE DANGEROUS Fabric. WHAT THEY DO FIRST, IS THEY GO IN AND CHECK THE AREAS TO SEE WHERE THERE IS ASBESTOS. BEFORE THERE IS DEMOLITION, THEY COME IN AND WITH THE ASBESTOS ABATEMENT TEAM, THEY CLEAR IT OUT. THAN THEY DEMO. Reporter: NORTH CHARLESTON CITY OFFICIALS SAY IT IS PART OF COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT. OVER THE YEARS, THE DEMOLISHED CLOSE TO 2000 Formations. THIS DECISION IS SIMPLY FALLING — FOLLOWING PROTOCOL. WHEN YOU Mull ABOUT THE COMMUNITY AND HOW TO BE BETTER, WOULD IT BE BETTER FOR A HOUSE TO SIT THERE AND SLOWLY DETERIORATE AND ROT? VERSUS COMING BACK AND CLEANING UP. WE CAN LOOK AT SOMETHING FRESH AND NEW COMING IN. Likewise, ELIMINATE THE POINTS OF FIRE HAZARD AND VAGRANTS COMING IN AND CREATING ISSUES? Reporter: THE COST FOR DILUTION IS PROJECTED TO TOTAL NEARLY $187,000. TAXPAYERS NEED TO NOT WORRY. THE PROJECT IS ALREADY COVERED THROUGH FEDERAL Fund. ALL OF THE MONEY IS FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT Fund. IT WILL HELP TO DEFLATE COSTS. IT IS NOT A BIG IMPACT TO CITY COUNCIL. THOSE ARE Fund THAT YOU DO NOT.
