The costs of remediating the toxic mold outbreak of a North Andover fire station have skyrocketed, in part due to the trailer rental ( $10,000 for two months, and $3,500 a month thereafter). If the Fire Department continues to be housed there through June, the temporary housing cost alone will be $55,000.
$600,000 was appropriated to make the Police and Fire Department buildings water tight. A third of that budget has been spent on replacing heating and air, generator repair and firefighter pay.
The repairs were originally estimated at $600,000. Budget costs are now expected to be $694,109. An additional $300,000 will be needed.
