The Fairbanks city council unanimously passed a resolution accepting $10 million from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the planned teardown of the Polaris Building in downtown Fairbanks.

However, the city needs to complete and submit a plan to the EPA before the $10 million can be released, according to the resolution.
