County awaits 3rd test results

Conflicting analysis -- to determine whether or not there’s mold in the Commissioner of Revenue’s office -- have the County awaiting results of a third test.

County Administrator Ronnie Roark told the Board of Supervisors last Thursday night that an employee in the Commissioner’s office ordered a test kit, which had been recommended by a doctor, and that those results came back positive for mold.

Roark, however, called Francisco’s Restoration of Keysville, and said Francisco’s test came back negative.

Roark said he asked Commissioner of Revenue Christy Hudson if she wanted another test. “She said she did, it was tested today, and I’ll be getting those results back next week.”

Mold has been an issue in recent years at the courthouse complex both in the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office -- now under repair and which forced staff out of the office for the past several weeks -- and at the Registrar’s Office, which relocated two years ago to the former Burkeville Elementary School.
