The Bennington government building blamed for making Vermont state workers sick is once again at the center of a debate.
The Bennington Office Building was closed down in March. Now, the Douglas Administration wants to renovate the building, making improvements to the existing structure to make sure it is healthy enough to be occupied again. But a local task force says the only way to make sure the building does not sicken workers again is to move the offices to a new location.
The cost of renovating is estimated to be about nine-million dollars, while a new building would cost about two-times that much, about 18-million.
