Dave Sugar, affiliates fined $850K for improper Weirton Steel demolition

Published: Fri, April 5, 2013 @ 10:47 p.m.

Staff report


Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Friday that a Jefferson County judge has ordered Dave Sugar of New Middletown and several of his affiliated companies to pay an $850,000 civil penalty resulting from the improper demolition of the former Weirton Steel facility in Steubenville and the subsequent asbestos contamination.

“Asbestos is widely known to be a dangerous, cancer-causing material which must be abated in any demolition,” said DeWine. “The aggressive penalty issued against the defendants in this case shows that endangering Ohioans by failing to properly manage asbestos will not be tolerated.”

Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge Joseph J. Bruzzese imposed the sanctions against Arthur David Sugar Sr.; David Sugar Excavating LLC of Petersburg; Honey Creek Contracting Inc.; Excavation Technologies Inc.; and ADS Leasing.

Sugar has been mishandling waste for eons.

Hopefully this puts a stop to his antics.

The government treats asbestos as though it were raw nitroglycerin in the hot sun. A bit too hysterically.

This is another legalized revenue grab.

I can only speak from experience but Sugar excavating did sewer work on our road and did all they could to cut corners and get the job done fast.They were low bid on the job but stood to make lots of dough just the same.
