ADEM proposes fines over Montgomery demolition
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama Department of Environmental Management has proposed $7,000 in fines against two companies for the demolition of the historic Pan-Am service station in downtown Montgomery.
The agency proposed a $1,000 fine against Kyser Development, which was an owner of the building, and a $6,000 fine against JB Waste Connection, which performed the demolition. The proposed fines are for failing to notify ADEM of the demolition and failing to submit a report indicating whether the building had asbestos.
An owner of Kyser Development, Kyle Kyser, told the Montgomery Advertiser (http://on.mgmadv.com/1ew9n4f ) that JB Waste was hired to handle the permits, but the owners should have made sure the company had all the permits in place.
The service station was built in the 1930s and was known for its unique architecture.
