It’s safe to say that Findlay City Council’s planned Thursday tour of city-owned property at 428 W. Main Cross St. just got a little shorter.
Two dilapidated outbuildings on the property were demolished Monday.
Council members plan to tour the rest of the property during an informal committee of the whole meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday.
Earlier this month, Mayor Lydia Mihalik asked council to consider selling the main building on the property, which was bought by the city in 2012 for $270,000 for the purpose of housing the city’s health department, before the city and county health departments merged.
Findlay Service Director Brian Thomas said council was made aware of the city’s plans to demolish the two outbuildings in a mayor’s letter, dated Aug. 7, and again at the Aug. 21 meeting of council, when Safety Director Paul Schmelzer said the city was moving ahead with plans to demolish two dilapidated buildings on the site.
Thomas said council will tour the remaining buildings on Thursday.
