Building Inspector Donnie Vandevender said two owners want their properties demolished while contractors are in town and will pay for demolition work on their own. For the demolition of the 11 mentioned properties, it's a 50/50 split of demolition and inspection costs up to the cities maximum amount of shared expense in demolition of the property. The city's maximum is 17-hundred 50 dollars per location. All abatement of hazardous materials, finished grading, and seeding is at the property ownerâ€™s expense.
Demolition project money comes from the cities budget. No government money is involved.
Contractor bids are due at City Hall September 15th. A bidders meeting and
tour of properties is August 27th, starting at 9 o'clock at the city hall.
