Grant Money to Clean Up Old Building in Wilkes-Barre

WILKES-BARRE -- More than $680,000 from the state will be used to clean up a former factory and department store in Wilkes-Barre.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced the grant for the building along South Main Street.

The money will be used to remove asbestos, lead, and other hazardous materials.

After that is done, Wilkes University plans to buy and renovate the building.

    It’s not free money, it’s money government officials decided was more important to be spent on this project than on your family’s budget. There’s something in it for them, too- hence that decision.
