HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - Hot Springs city leaders are now ready to clean up the Majestic Hotel.
It's a process that has been in the works for months, and bids are now being taken to start the abatement process.
Hot Springs officials are asking for companies to fill out a formal Request for Proposals (FRP) for abatement and demolition services. The first area they will tackle is what they call the "yellow brick section" of the hotel.
Lance Spicer at the City Manager's Office said cleaning up the "yellow brick area" will take approximately two months. What they needed to do before the process started was to complete an abatement survey to assess the areas with hazardous waste.
Now that that part of the process has been finished, Spicer said they can move on to accepting bids from removal companies.
