Thousands of dollars have been tacked on to a project to renovate the city council chambers at Honolulu Hale.

The added cost comes after the discovery of asbestos last month.

Originally, the renovation budget was estimated at $141,000.

It will cost an additional $52,000 to remediate the asbestos problem.

Air quality tests came back negative for asbestos and lead.
