Machines at cleanup site

A n excavator and dump truck were at the site of the pile of rubble on Main Street Tuesday morning.

Though employees from Edgeco Environmental, Inc., told Granville officials last week the cleanup would begin this past Monday, a mechanical problem got in the way.

John Winn, an attorney who has been representing one of the former buildings’ owners, said Edgeco officials told him Monday they were waiting to hear from a company that was fixing a hydraulic problem with one of their machines, and they expected the call to come later that day.

“They told me they’re bringing the equipment up to start work as soon as possible,” Winn said.

On Tuesday, Mayor Brian LaRose said he was glad to hear Edgeco’s equipment had been mobilized to Granville.

“It’s been a long time coming. My understanding was it would start last week, and then they said it would start on Monday. When I came home last night and I saw it was still there, I was disappointed,” LaRose said.

He said the village did everything in its means to move the process along, but many people don’t’ realize how layered the cleanup process was.

“We need to get this thing basically done and over. We wish those folks well and hope it gets done as soon as possible,” he said.

At least three Edgeco vehicles were in the lot behind Main Street as of Tuesday afternoon, and the excavator was picking up some debris.
