The former Naval Reserve Center building in Anderson is being demolished following a vote by the Anderson Board of Public Works. Our partners at The Herald Bulletin report the board awarded a contract to Shroyer Brothers Inc. to demolish the building at a cost of just under $60,000.
The Herald Bulletin reports the city is paying $30,000 to remove asbestos from the building, and the estimated cost for demolition is $100,000.
The publication reports the Naval Reserve Center building had been used as Anderson Parks Department headquarters, North Anderson Community Center and Police Athletic League.
The building had been vacant and boarded up since 2012.
