City plans building demolitions


BUCKHANNON — In the coming weeks, multiple locations are set for demolition by City of Buckhannon officials, thanks to the renting of specialized equipment.

• 31 Upper Drive – A house the city purchased from a tax sale

• Office Building at the old Street Department on Factory Street

• Salt bins on Factory Street (will be repurposed) 

• A portion of a garage on Factory Street

• 39 Sedgwick Street – An old garage the city purchased from a tax sale

• 65 E Main St – Pythias building purchased by city

• Madison Street – old bank drive-thru building

“We hope to get started on these projects soon and see some new projects begin as well,” said City Recorder Randy Sanders.
