Demolition Begins For Closed Ottawa School

Posted by wlpo on August 6, 2013

The wrecking ball arrived at the old Central School in Ottawa.

Demolition began Tuesday morning on the elementary school along Ottawa’s riverfront.  The building hadn’t been used in several years after being heavily damaged by flood waters.  River City Demolition of Peoria is doing the job for $248,000.

Mayor Bob Eschbach says demolition should take 6 to 8 weeks.  The city is taking suggestions from the public on how to develop the land.
