The Iowa Law Enforcement Academy has requested advise on whether to fix its moldy facility or simply relocate.
The academy in Johnston has trained more than 11,000 law enforcement personnel in the last year. After tests in December 2015 showed high levels of mold, the facility underwent a deep cleaning.
The underlying causes of the mold have not been removed, however. Academy director Judy Bradshaw says the sources are the plumbing and HVAC systems.
The academy is seeking $10 million from the Rebuild Iowa Infrastructure Fund, which is funded in part by Iowa gambling revenue.
