SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – More photos of issues arising in the Roderick L. Ireland Courthouse were taken Friday.
According to a social media post by the Hampden County Registry of Deeds, the Hampden County Registry of Deeds was sent these pictures from the law library located inside the courthouse:
Elected officials and community leaders for months have called for the existing courthouse to be shut down entirely and replaced, because of reported issues such as sewage leaks and air quality concerns within its walls.
Attorneys have said an independent study showed toxic, cancer-causing mold inside the building. Mold issues shut the courthouse down for weeks last year.
22News will continue to bring updates on the courthouse as more information is given.
