Wrecking ball coming soon to abandoned building in downtown Oglesby

Posted by wlpo on January 20, 2015

A downtown eyesore in Oglesby should be gone in a couple weeks.

According to the NewsTribune, the Oglesby City Council approved a $41,000 bid from C&H Excavating out of Earlville to tear down a rundown building in the 200 block of East Walnut Street west of the Shields Funeral Chapel.

Tearing down the building has long been a priority of the council. Commissioner Tom Porter is against the demolition though because he doesn’t like using taxpayer dollars to tear down private property.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
