Asbestos removal to get under way at Camp Naco

[Source: Laura Ory, Herald/Review] -- Preservation work at Camp Naco will get under way as asbestos removal is completed this week. Mayor George Nerhan made an emergency purchase of $5,000 for Environmental Strategies Inc. to remove asbestos from buildings at Camp Naco this week. The purchase was needed to allow University of Arizona students to complete a condition assessment this weekend and to comply with their Arizona Heritage Preservation Fund grant, Nerhan said at the Town Council meeting Thursday. The town also will seek fencing for the historic military site in the near future, Town Clerk Ron Armstrong said.
