Ask Environmental began the demolition of the Monkey Top Saloon in the Town of Bentley last week. 

A demolition permit was issued based on the contractor’s adherence to all safety procedures and protocols for the abatement of asbestos. The contractor will ensure air monitoring is in place.  

The Town of Bentley is advising residents and visitors to provide space for the contractor while cleanup work is completed, and to follow all safety protocols established by Ask Environmental on-site.  

“We realize that this cleanup effort has taken time, and we appreciate the community’s patience as the property owner worked with their insurance provider to secure a licensed contractor to undertake the asbestos abatement,” a Town of Bentley media release said. 

The demolition follows the Jan. 16 fire.  

The current owners have stated that they plan to rebuild.
