I followed a McKiness dump truck from the north end of town out to the Madison School demolition site today. Once I got out there, they were filling the trucks full of debris, and away the next one went, heading north back to the dump site at the old Decker meat packing plant area. While I was at the Madison School demo site, the dust and debris was blowing everywhere. It was also blowing right out of the back of the dump trucks and off the bricks where the school stood. I mean lots of this stuff, it was thick in the air and even made it hard to breath for a moment. Seemed to be a real safety concern. I shot video of it. Is anyone overseeing this situation? Is there asbestos out there? Is this material being safely disposed of? Who is ensuring this is a safe process?

I am just wondering if anyone is paying attention to this situation and if there is a danger to the community.

Thank you
