Stanley City Hall being torn down; inspections in 2013 concluded building was dangerous


STANLEY, North Dakota — Crews this week are demolishing Stanley's City Hall.

Inspections in 2013 concluded that the century-old building on Main Street sat on gasoline-contaminated soil; had black mold, asbestos and lead paint; and had a bad ventilation system.

The structure was deemed dangerous, and Mayor Fritz Weisenberger tells KXMC-TV ( ) that city officials determined it didn't make sense to invest money in it.

City employees are working out of leased office space. Weisenberger says the future of the City Hall lot hasn't been determined. He says contaminants in the soil will need to be removed before a new building can be considered.
