The Snoop 10.24.2013

The Cabool Enterprise reported last week that the Cabool R-IV School District was granted permission by the Department of Natural Resources to remove a bridge – but the district doesn’t have a bridge.
The article explained that the school district had to obtain permisson from DNR to remove a small rock building located on school property. Asbestos was found in the building; after the asbestos was removed the district sent paperwork to DNR to request final clearance. DNR responded with paperwork needed to complete the job, then referred to the removal of a bridge and how disposal of its parts would need to be handled.
After a few phone calls, the district got permission to remove the building.

The department also received a $126,000 federal grant through the Assistance to Firefighters Act to purchase 24 new breathing apparatus.
