Asbestos to be Removed from Historic Settles Hotel

BIG SPRING - Before any construction can begin on the historic Settles Hotel in Big Spring, project developers have to remove the asbestos from the building.

This week the Big Spring City Council approved two contractors for the job of environmental abatement of the landmark building.

In addition to the contractor approval, money was put into escrow by Settles project developers, to pay the city back for the asbestos removal.

The next update on the hotel will be at the end of the month.
