REMEDIATION CONTINUES AT OLD REID PROPERTY

(Richmond, IN)--Environmental work is still being done on the old Reid Hospital property.  "(Reid) has recently received approval from IDEM for additional remediation investigation," said Beth Fields when addressing Richmond Common Council Monday night.  It was part of a discussion regarding an interlocal agreement between the city and the county.  City Attorney AJ Sickmann said it’s up to the city to decide the final use.  "The city could ultimately choose to convey this to someone for nominal consideration - for example, a dollar - just to spur future developments."   IDEM will also place environmental restrictions on the property.
