County gets deal for asbestos abatement

El Campo High School FFA Ag Issues members give a presentation to the Wharton County Commissioners Court at Monday’s meeting. Pictured from the left are junior Kamryn Till, senior Mason Woodruff, sophomore Lizzie Erwin, sophomore Bryan Cisneros, and junior Grace Amestoy. They were under the direction of Casey Wilson (not pictured). They gave the pros and cons of the rights of farmers to repair their tractors versus having the highly technical and warrantied work done only by certified technicians.

A Wharton County-owned storage facility in Wharton will soon undergo asbestos abatement at a cost much lower than was anticipated by county officials.

At Monday’s session of commissioners court, the commissioners accepted bids for the project and awarded it to Emanuel Enterprises of Houston for $13,444.
