City of Brownwood workers demolished a pair of old frame homes on Friday in the 1400 block of Vincent, directly behind Brookshires grocery store.
Brownwood’s Director of Development Services Kevin Pate said that the homes were is poor condition and considered public nuisances.
“City initiated discussions with the property owner during March 2011. He agreed the structures were in bad condition but wanted some time to maybe move or sell to someone interested in rehabilitating the structures,” Pate said. “He asked for a 1 year grace period which the city agreed to. That period ended and there was no one interested in the property so demolition was scheduled.”
Pate said that the houses were considered to be in a condition that violates city ordinances, and although the owner agreed that they were in violation, he did not have the immediate resources to demolish them so the city stepped in.
