The Allegheny County Health Department has shut down Clairton Pennsylvania's recent demolition efforts.

“They were demolishing commercial properties without getting the proper asbestos surveys or asbestos permits,” said Jayme Graham, head of the department's air quality program.

A released a copy of an order issued on July 24 regarding asbestos and said the county's inspector “has been trying to work as close as possible” with city Manager Howard Bednar and contractor Stash Trucking of Uniontown.

“Once the demolition contractor provides the health department with the proper information and application, the health department will review and if all is in order issue the asbestos demolition permit,” Bednar said Friday. “This will allow the city to continue its demolition program of buildings that are a health and safety hazard to residents.”

The asbestos order covers 19 buildings.
