Insurance companies are finishing up their work at the site of the devastating April 7 fire on Spring Street in Friday Harbor. The next step before the debris can be collected and hauled away involves the nature of the debris - is there lead, asbestos, etc. and if present how will they be handled. Another big question to be answered is where will the debris be taken.
Once those questions are answered, the Town of Friday Harbor and the contractor MEM Enterprises will announce the dates that the cleanup operation will be underway and the safety measures that will be in place.
MEM Enterprise staffer said the hope is to be able to open up Spring Street to traffic as soon as it is safe to do so.
