Thomas said the property owners have been notified by mail of the process. A public hearing will held to provide them with the opportunity to appeal the decision, request an extension or time to make necessary repairs. Thomas said if the property owners do not respond in a specified time, the city will have no choice but to tear the said property down.

The council approved the city manager’s request to reject all bids on the construction of an inventory control facility for the city’s utility department. The previous building was destroyed by straight-line winds about a year ago. The low bid for the construction of a new metal building was twice the cost the city expected. The council agreed to have the construction done through a management contract.In other action, the council gave its approval for participation in the Pike County Emergency Operation Plan as presented by the Pike County EMA. The council also discussed the cost of the storm drain failure on Veterans Boulevard. The repairs will include the digging out of the damaged area and extensive cement work. Carl Senn will do the digging and Dwight Berry will do the cement work.
