Ad-Express and Daily Iowegian, Centerville, IA


218 E. Jackson St.

George Johnson, Centerville's building and code compliance officer, said the building at 218 E. Jackson St. basically imploded and now is a safety hazard and needs to be torn down. The owner does not have the money to demolish the collapsed structure, so Johnson asked the City Council to foot the bill. The City Council didn't take a vote because Johnson said he wasn't ready to proceed based on what he learned recently about the cost and methods to dispose from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
