TONALEA, Ariz. - On Nov. 8, Peabody Coal Company representative Walter Begay, Jr. hand delivered a $1,000 check to Tonalea Chapter Community Services Coordinator Betty Tso. The money will go towards a structural engineer inspection, demolition and cost for the planning and design of a new chapter building.

"Peabody is partnering with Tonalea Chapter and the money will be used towards rebuilding the chapter house," Tso said.

On Oct. 15 Tonalea Chapter became one of five other chapters whose buildings have also been closed across the Navajo Nation. The Division of Environmental Health Services recommended closing the 53-year-old structure, built in 1959, because it had become unsafe for chapter employees and community members to use the chapter building.

Tonalea Chapter has continued daily operations from a tin warehouse despite the onset of winter.

Peabody Coal Company is one of the first companies to approach the chapter with grant money to assist Tonalea Chapter in moving towards new construction of a governmental building for the community. A completion date for a new governmental building has not been established but chapter officials are working to make the new governmental building a priority.
