    WEATHERSFIELD ó Officials say about two-thirds of asbestos and other hazardous materials have been removed from an old school complex in Vermont.

    Multiple wings in the old Weathersfield Elementary School in Perkinsville on Route 106 have been cleared of asbestos.

    The original school was constructed in 1879. Additions from the 1950s and 1960s will eventually be torn down.

    The Eagle Times reported that on Town Meeting Day in March, Weathersfield voters approved an article to borrow up to $225,000 to remove any hazardous materials in the building and demolish the undesired additions while saving the 1879-built schoolhouse.

    Voters rejected a similar proposal in November 2012.
