Concerns over building quality at the Scio Township Fire Station and attached Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office substation prompted mold investigations in the fall and an employee to work out of a different building, township records show. But two air quality and mold tests in the fall and winter found little to no hazardous concerns. Records obtained by The Ann Arbor News/MLive showed no unusual levels of mold spores or other fungal growth in the building, located at 1055 Zeeb Road. It houses several firefighters 24 hours a day and at least two county sheriff’s deputies in the substation daily. Employees had been complaining about the township-owned building’s quality for several months before the environmental quality report was conducted. According to emails obtained by The Ann Arbor News via a Freedom of Information Act request, a Washtenaw County lieutenant complained of the smell in July 2019.
