Moving Day for Union Gap City Hall
The move to relocate Union Gap city employees from a mold infested city hall is underway.
This morning workers packed boxes of files, computers and office supplies onto a moving truck. 17 employees are moving out of city hall temporarily because of toxic mold.
Some of them are being moved to offices at the fire station across the street. One employee is glad she'll be a safe distance from the mold that some workers say made them sick.
"Absolutely happy to be away from it, I'm happy that they discovered it, and pleased that they're taking quick action on it," says acting City Clerk Patti Hondermis.
Other employees are being moved to the youth center next door to city hall. The main city hall could be closed for six months or longer because of the mold, the city doesn't yet know how much it will cost to complete the cleanup work.
