DNR, air commission refer Springfield company to AG

Posted online
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the state Air Conservation Commission referred three cases involving Missouri businesses, including a Springfield organization, to the Missouri Attorney General's office for violations of the state's Air Conservation Law.

In Springfield, Accurate Building Inspectors failed to register with the department as a certified asbestos contractor and failed to provide notification prior to beginning an asbestos removal project, according to a DNR news release. The company also used improper work practices in removing asbestos materials, the release said.

According to the release, the department contacted the business owners multiple times but has not received an adequate response. No company with the name Accurate Building Inspectors is listed with the Missouri Secretary of State's office.

The commission voted at its June 24 meeting to refer the cases to the AG's office to compel compliance and to seek appropriate civil penalties for violations after the companies refused to take responsibilities for their violations and would not negotiate reasonable settlements with the department, according to the release.[[In-content Ad]]
