What will become of the Keller Building's rubble?

What do crews usually do with all that rubble? AmberLee via Facebook

The Register recently published an article pertaining to the situation.

In short, it's the contractor's responsibility to remove the rubble.

“All of the salvaged material on that property belongs to Independence Excavating to do whatever they wish,” Sandusky city commissioner Dick Brady said. “They can sell it to Benny B. or give it to Benny B. Sandusky is not selling stone to Benny B. That is a relationship between Benny B. and Independence Excavating."

Now that's one lazy answer.

You could have explained part of the rubble with timbers and wood was hauled away by truck, the metal reinforcing rods and beams were sent to be recycled in bins, some larger limestone and sandstone blocks are being salvaged by a private citizen and supposedly the city, and much of the smaller stone rubble is being crushed for gravel and stone dust to fill the site.

Get out of your office and walk a block to the north.

Just read the article about Benny, what a great job on his part with being proactive and just talking to the company doing the demo.

As for T.A. Shwang, man this guy needs to stop worrying so much about a deal between two business's. He is just like Sharon, can never make those two happy.

I bet it the property was turned into a plaza/park they would complain because of the cost to maintain it.

If you do not receive a copy of the Sandusky Register, the Sandusky Library carries copies of past issues. You may want to check last Friday's edition containing a Reader's Forum letter explaining Save Our Shoreline Park's proposal for the Keller Building archways and doors prior to bids for the Keller Building demolition being approved.

Ok? That has nothing to do with Benny B. Noone stopped you fro, buying those archways. Sounds like the city didn't want them either. Good idea but noone cares.
