An eastern Nebraska-based window and siding company is agreeing to pay a fine to settle federal allegations about unsafe business practices.
Albracht Perma-Siding and Window Company, of Omaha, will pay a civil penalty of nearly $6200, according to a release from the federal EPA.
Albracht was accused of not telling an Omaha couple about lead-based paint risks before doing renovation work on the home, which was built before 1978. That was the year lead-based paint was banned for residential use nationwide.
The EPA says Albracht also failed to keep records of lead-safe work practices on renovation jobs and ten older homes in Omaha, Lincoln and Bellevue.
