The City of Rushville Street Department began work to bring down the unsafe structure at 815 West Ninth Street this week after the Board of Works and Rushville Common City Council approved moving forward using staff resources when possible to remove these dangerous eye sores. The equipment operator is Dan Hoover. The City is also waiting on the termination of utilities at other locations (312 and 314 W. 5th Street and 424 North Harrison) before tear down work on those unsafe buildings begins. The 312 and 314 West 5th Street structure will be brought down by Owens Excavating for a cost of $1,450.00 with the Street Department removing the debris.
City Street Department workers also brought down the unsafe structure at 215 South Pearl Street. Dan Hoover is operating the Backhoe.
