Union Gap Decides to Buy Temporary City Hall

Posted: Updated:

UNION GAP, Wash.-- NBC Right Now continues to follow the mold problem in Union Gap's City Hall.

The city council has finally decided to buy a mobile unit to function as a temporary city hall.

The council voted last year to demolish the old city hall after they found toxic black mold inside.

Union Gap Mayor Roger Wentz said they were able to afford the unit because they left the city manager assistant and the city clerk positions unfilled for the past several months.

"We've just put a lot of strain on some crucial employees that have been willing to really go above and beyond working a lot of extra time," Wentz said.

The city is taking applications for those positions now, and they also hope to hire a new city manager within the next few months.

They expect the new mobile unit to be in place by mid-March.
