Gloucester County Buildings and Grounds crews have a new rainy day project.

Public works director Garrey Curry said Oct. 15 that when crews have time, such as on rainy days when they can’t perform other outdoor tasks, they have begun working at the old Gloucester Health Department building on Carriage Court in the village.

According to county administrator Brenda Garton, crews are gutting the building’s basement. "Years of water infiltration through the basement walls has caused significant damage" to wallboard and insulation, Garton reported recently to the Gloucester Board of Supervisors.
