DEP rules that Rush Township property properly disposed of

Published July 21. 2010 05:00PM

A Rush Township -owned building that was demolished in May, was properly disposed of, according to the state Department of Environmental Protection.

The township had purchased the building, a former home adjacent to the township building along Route 54, in 2006 for $91,803 for use as a sewer department office. However, plans changed, and the building, known as the Fortunato property, was left vacant. Supervisors subsequently decided to tear it down.

Residents complained to DEP that the company doing the demolition had illegally dumped the debris.

On June 30, DEP sent a letter to the township supervisors, advising them that "The property of the contractor, Grand Prix Excavation, was investigated by DEP. Upon completion of (Solid Waste Supervisor Chuck Roger's) inspection, he determined that all the requirements regarding proper disposal of the debris had been fulfilled by the contractor."
