Hobart considers demolition plan for dilapidated structures

Hobart Mayor Brian Snedecor said Wednesday he and Clerk-Treasurer Deborah Longer would find money in the budget to demolish some of the vacant, abandoned and dilapidated houses in the city.

“We owe it to the taxpayers who do take care of their properties,” Snedecor said.

“Can we take care of every property? No, but we’ll be doing our due diligence,” Snedecor said during the Board of Public Works and Safety meeting.

He said he’s targeting the houses that are vacant and abandoned and become eyesores in their neighborhoods.
