The Town of New Windsor has accepted a bid for Titan Demolition and Salvage to demolish 10 town-owned buildings at Stewart International Airport. The work, which also includes debris removal, will cost about $197,000.

Titan put in the lowest bid to carry out the work, according to New Windsor Supervisor George Green. The project is expected to be completed around June, and the property will be put up for sale, Green said.

Hudson Valley Environmental Solutions was initially hired for the job. However, the work was put on hold after a disagreement between the town and company erupted pertaining to asbestos in the buildings.

Green and Town Attorney Michael Blythe offered no comment on the matter.

Owner of Hudson Valley Environmental Solutions, John Pastor Sr., has filed three notices of claim. Under state law, if an entity intends to sue a municipality, it has 90 days to file a notice of claim, and about one year and 90 days to file a lawsuit.
