STEUBENVILLE

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.
