PALESTINE, Texas (May 15, 2019) – On April 15, 2019, Public Works employees who work at 1620 West Palestine Avenue, Building One (1), were temporarily relocated next door to Building Two (2) for final resolution of a rodent problem. First and foremost, we are concerned with the safety of our City employees and visitors to that location. All employees at this location have been provided the information on how to seek medical treatment if they feel it might be needed in accordance with our workman’s compensation policy with the Texas Municipal League. Until we have received clearance from an environmental indoor air quality report, we will continue to provide our services out of Building 2. Upon completion of this project, the City will be conducting an After Action Review.
Thank you for your understanding while we continue our work with licensed professionals to properly address this issue. Public Works staff may still be reached at their regular phone number 903-731-8423.
