COUNCIL APPROVES GRANT PURSUAL TO REMOVE ADDITIONAL BLIGHTED HOMES

(Richmond, IN)--Richmond Common Council met Monday night.  Council agreed to pursue a grant that will take down additional blighted homes across the city.  The original grant allowed for 145 homes that had been abandoned and become eyesores to be taken down.  A new round of grants, if approved, would provide an additional $270,000.  That money would fund the demolition of 11 additional blighted homes.
