T he pile of rubble on Main Street is finally gone.

As far as local officials know, Edgeco Environmental, Inc., has finished the removal process. On Thursday, Village Clerk Rick Roberts said Code Enforcement Officer Fred Roberts told him Edgeco was done with the project.

“He felt the site was fully remediated,” said Roberts, who agreed that there was no longer any public safety hazard. There is still a piece of solid dividing wall left in the space, but Roberts thought that was beyond Edgeco’s removal abilities.

The pile originated with a Nov. 12, 2012 fire that destroyed two buildings—a former bank being used as an art studio and gallery and a pawn shop.

John Winn, an attorney representing one of the former spaces’ owners, has been in regular contact with Edgeco, the company hired for removal, since work began.

On Thursday he also said the rubble is completely gone. Whether the company would return to clean debris off the wall that adjoins Scotties’ Restaurant has not yet been established, he said.

“There are no details that I can discuss,” he said. As far as the future of the site, Winn said the owners have been looking to sell it for the past year, but he did not know any specifics.
