Sheriff Sam Craig asked if the commissioners received the asbestos report back from the old courthouse annex building on I Street. Craig would like to have the building tore down, so in the future a building could be built and used for a work release program at the jail. Auditor Billie Tumey says she has called the firm and they have not returned her calls or sent the report. Without the information, commissioners don't know how much was found and what the cost will be to remove the asbestos.
