A lab report on mold in the Lansford borough office revealed high levels of Aspergillus, a fungus commonly associated with water damage.
The report, by Dr. Vernon L. Alvarez of Criterion Laboratories Inc., Bensalem, Bucks County, was received by the borough on April 12 and distributed at Wednesday's regular council meeting.
The mold was found on a sample of plaster from the offices, above the American Fire Co. No. 1 at 23 E. Patterson Street.
"Aspergillus is a common source of allergens in homes and offices, and may lead to health issues," Alvarez noted.
