The renovation of a pavilion in a Louisville, Kentucky, park has been delayed after asbestos was found in the roof’s shingles.
According to officials, the original renovation of the iconic Hogan’s Fountain Pavilion at Cherokee Park was supposed to cost nearly $45,000. However, with the discovery of asbestos and cost of the abatement process, an additional $28,000 will be needed.
The project is now on hold while supporters try to raise the funds for the the asbestos removal. The sons of the architect that designed the pavilion have agreed to match donations dollar for dollar, up to $5,000.
