Fuel waste areas left by the Air Force during its stay in Galena could be cleaned up soon.
City Council voted Tuesday night to further talks about leasing a building on the former base to Air Force-hired subcontractors.
Those subcontractors would use the building for storage while they conduct a cleanup.
City Manager Tom Corrigan says the building may be needed for a long time to come, because many years of waste are buried in the ground.
All remediation efforts are by mandate of the Department of Environmental Conservation.
