Well, two possibilities seem obvious — which does not mean either is correct!

City officials did not realize there were any potential health concerns because they got all their information from the developer and/or the demolition contractor. – or – City officials did realize there were potential health concerns and sidelined all health experts in favor of the pro-demolition people. (But why on earth would the city’s business manager be on the panel‽)

I hope there are other reasons, since either of these would be frighteningly irresponsible.
