City awards pact for asbestos removal and demolition

YOUNGSTOWN

The city’s board of control approved a $268,820 contract to remove asbestos and demolish a building that’s been closed for decades on the North Side.

The property at 68 Teamsters Drive will be used by McRoyal Industries, located nearby at 1421 Lilac St., for an expansion project, said Abigail Beniston, the city’s code enforcement and blight remediation superintendent.

McRoyal fabricates various products including seating booths, table tops, cases, custom cabinets and kiosks for restaurants and stores. The company was founded in 1956.

The board awarded the contract Thursday to ProQuality Land Development of Campbell for the work. The project will take up to 75 days, Beniston said.

ProQuality submitted the lowest of five proposals.
