Odor reported gone; doors still propped openMay 3, 2013
From local sources
JASPER — The doors of the Dubois County Division of Family Resources office were still propped open this morning, and fans in the doorways were turned on to circulate air.
But according to Marni Lemons, deputy director for communications and media for the state office, a manager at the local office reported to the state that as of Tuesday she could no longer detect a chemical odor in the office.
Another part of the building at 695 W. Second St. is under construction, and a chemical stripping solution that was used Monday, April 22, left a powerful odor. Last week and earlier this week, employees and some clients were wearing masks over their mouths and noses to protect them from the smell.
Nine full-time employees and two part-time managers work in the office, according to Lemons. Based on numbers from January through March, the office sees about 940 clients each month, Lemons said.
The manager reported that the smell has diminished each day since April 22, Lemons said.
