According to a recent report asbestos removal is required at a theatre that is located in Massachusetts. The theatre is the Casino Theatre, which is on Main Street. Officials have said that if the owner of the building fails to make it safe then there is a possibility that it may have to be demolished.

Steven C. Boudreau, the town manager, has stated that a motion is being put forward by the town council to force the building owner either to have the asbestos problem dealt with so that the building is made safe or to have the building destroyed of this is not done.

The building was examined by town officials back in April, and at that time the problem was identified and the owner was given the choice of getting the building destroyed or making it safe by May 20th at latest. However, with the deadline now passed many residents in the area are concerned.

During Memorial Day activities in the area members of the public had to be kept away from the building because authorities were concerned over the health risks that the building could pose to people. It is likely to cost around one hundred thousand dollars to carry out asbestos abatement at the theatre.

Exposure to airborne asbestos dust and fibers can result in a range of health problems, including the deadly asbestos related cancer known as mesothelioma.
