Mold discovered again in same South Carolina courthouse
Posted April 16
SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Officials say mold has once again been discovered in the Spartanburg County courthouse, forcing more office closures and relocations.
Clerk of Court Hope Blackley tells the Herald-Journal of Spartanburg in an email (http://bit.ly/2oDCoF7) that an air quality report found five areas in the courthouse had elevated levels of mold and mold spores that can cause nasal, eye and skin irritations.
The 60-year-old courthouse was closed at times last year because of mold.
The Spartanburg County Council is considering a new judicial center and city-county government complex that would cost almost $217 million. Officials say it's needed in part because of persistent mold problems.
