Ottawa Approves Bid To Demolish Abandoned Building

2/13/18 – 5:16 A.M.

Plans are moving forward to demolish an abandoned duplex in Ottawa. The Lima News reports Ottawa Village Council members voted to approve an $8,900 bid to tear down the building at 127 and 129 North Grant Street. The 2007 flood damaged the property. It sustained further damage in a windstorm, prompting concerns the roof of the home might fall onto power lines.

Removing asbestos from the building could cost the village between $35,000 and $37,000. Mayor Dean Meyer says they will assess the cost to the property owner.
