Asbestos Forces Relocation of City Rec. Offices

PATERSON, NJ - The city recreation division has moved to a building in East Side Park because renovations on its Ellison Street offices resulted in an asbestos problem, according to Business Administrator Charles Thomas.

City employees renovating the offices at 133 Ellison noticed the asbestos dust during the work last week, Thomas said. For their protection, the recreation staff members were relocated to offices in the park, he said. Also relocated was the city's Neighborhood Assistance Office, which moved back to its old location next door at 125 Ellison.

Thomas said the asbestos would result in a "minimal" increase in the cost of the renovations. He said he expected the eight employees affected by the work would be able to return to 133 Ellison by next week.
