Spartanburg Co. Council votes to stay in mold-plagued courthouse


SPARTANBURG Co., SC (WSPA) — As employees continue voicing concerns about health issues, Spartanburg County Council members have voted to keep operations in their mold-plagued courthouse.

Several studies and clean-up efforts have been implemented due to mold in the 60-year-old courthouse.

Council held a special meeting at 9 a.m. Monday. 

Courthouse employees will be waiting to hear if they will spend four more years in the building while a new judicial center is built. 

Spartanburg County residents approved a one cent sales tax to generate $224 million over six years that would be used to construct new government buildings, including a courthouse. 

Council recently voted to postpone any decisions on the courthouse after a deal fell through to temporarily move around 250 employees to an industrial park. 

Several employees have filed a lawsuit in which they allege mold-related health issues.
