Meeting to be held to discuss Kennett PD mold

KENNETT, MO (KAIT) - A meeting will be held in March to discuss the potential health hazard that forced Kennett Police Department to move to city hall.

Lt. Tim Trowbridge states John C. Kraemer, Ph.D, Director of the Center For Environmental Analysis a Southeast Missouri State University was one of several consultants contacted to look into the hazard.

On March 5, Dr. Kraemer will present the results of the air quality sampling and test results during the regular city council meeting.

According to the Kennett Police Department, possible mold was found on Feb. 7 inside the building forcing the evacuation and moving of the entire station.

Police spent most of Thursday moving desks, computers, phones, evidence from the evidence room, and weaponry from the old building to the temporary place in City Hall. 

The police department's temporary location is fully functioning according to city officials.

Police say the move was precautionary and that no one has been sickened by the mold outbreak.
