The discovery of mould and other unhealthy materials has resulted in a permanent closure of the Splatsin administration building near Enderby.

Splatsin made the announcement on its website Wednesday, Nov. 15.

A recent investigation report said the building, along with the education, title and rights, and old council portables, will be permanently shut down “due to a determination that there is some mould and unhealthy materials present in the structure.”

Splatsin said the closure has taken place “as our top priority is the safety and well-being of our employees.”

All Splatsin staff are being relocated to the Splatsin Community Centre pending the delivery and set-up of mobile offices.

“We understand that this may cause inconvenience for many, and we appreciate your understanding, patience, and support during this time,” said Splatsin. “Our team is working diligently to rectify this situation, and we will keep you updated regularly on progress made in this matter.”
