"News" piece on Bonaire, a government housing project with 60 units in Presque I
"News" piece on Bonaire, a government housing project with 60 units in Presque Isle that once served as base housing for military personnel stationed at the former Loring Air Force Base in Limestone. The Bureau of Indian Affairs, a division of the federal Department of the Interior, asked that the housing be transferred to the Aroostook Band of Micmacs and in 1998, the deal was completed. But Fred Corey, the tribe's environmental director, says the Bonaire housing contains dangerous amounts of lead paint and asbestos, along with radon gas and the serious mold and mildew associated with cracked foundations and poor ventilation. It is estimated that the tribe has already paid close to $110,000 to deal with the problems and much more money is needed. Doug Luckerman, the tribes lawyer, wants the Defense Department to fix the problem.
