like this," Rabbi
Rushnawitz said. "Gotham
Tower has the money. The
lack of finances is not the
problem."
In the meantime, the
yeshiva is in the process of
purchasing the building
from Gotham Tower, he said.
However, that deal will fall
through if Gotham Tower
does not fulfill the land con-
tract conditions to the school
board's satisfaction.
In addition to the contract
dispute between Gotham
Tower and the school board,
yeshiva officials are con-
cerned about removing
asbestos • from the school
building. -
The yeshiva was one of two
area schools informed last
month by the U.S. Envi-
ronmental Protection Agen-
cy (EPA) that it faces a
possible $4,000 fine for
violating asbestos rules. The
EPA had not received a
management plan required
from all elementary and
secondary schools that
shows the agency how much
of the suspected carcinogen
is in the building-and what
the school plans to do about
it.
However Rabbi
Rushnawitz said ' everything
has been settled and the
yeshiva will not be fined.
The plan is on its way to the
EPA.
The Yeshiva discovered it
had two minor asbestos
problems in the boiler room.
A door must be installed in a
boiler room tunnel and some
small pipes have to be
covered to fix the asbestos
problem, Rabbi Rushnawitz
said. He estimates the
repairs will cost" about
$3,100 and will be completed
by August, 1990.0

not affect Yeshiva Gedolah,
said Yeshiva Administrator
Rabbi Peretz Rushnawitz.
Last week, the school
board passed a resolution
telling Gotham Tower,
which owns the yeshiva and
surrounding area at 24600
Greenfield Rd., to pay the
money it owes the board,
said school superintendent
Leonard Demak.
Although Gotham Tower
has paid the interest on the
land contract, it has not paid
the taxes or the principal
money it owes the board for
a year-and-a-half, Demak
said. He would not say how
much , money Gotham owes
the board except that is a
"substantial amount."
If Gotham Tower does pay
the debt, the board must
consider its options, he said.
It could declare Gotham
Tower has forfeited its land
contract and the property
would revert back to the
board.
However, Gotham Tower
President Lorraine Golden
said the company "fully in-
tends to make the payment.
We just needed to work some
details out with the tenant
in the building and the
school."
Gotham Tower got behind
in the payments last year
when it was not notified by
the school board that money
was due, Golden said. When
it received the bill this year,
the company wanted to work
out a way to pay the entire
bill faster.
Golden would not say how
much money the company

the debt will be paid within
the next few weeks.
