Published 9:17am Wednesday, December 18, 2013

An eyesore is about to come down.

On Monday, the Niles City Council approved the demolition of a Cass Street property that was heavily damaged when a tree fell on it during a winter storm in December 2012.

The property is located at 511 Cass Street.

According to a council report, the owner of the structure did not move forward with plans to repair the structure, which remains a potential safety hazard and nuisance to the community.

Pelley Excavating of Niles has submitted a bid to raze the structure for $5,865.

• Gave approval to Niles Main Street DDA to conduct the annual Hunter Ice Festival in downtown Jan. 17-20.
