Garrettsville – After securing ownership of the former Grist Mill last Friday, owner Mike Maschek has spared no time in beginning the asbestos abatement of the property. Crews have been hard at work carefully removing the faded brown siding from the building, and the result is evident.

Once the materials containing asbestos have been removed from the premises, demolition can begin on the two dilapidated structures behind the main building.
