Block 900 of Main Street East was closed to traffic this week for the structure to be demolished. The emergency demolition was approved on October 19 by the city’s Hazardous Buildings Commission. The roof of the three-story building collapsed through the first and second floors.

Green City will be responsible for the removal and disposal of all materials at an approved landfill outside of Richmond. Neighboring buildings at 914 and 920 E. Main St. will be assessed after demolition for stability and reinforced if necessary.

The council also opened bids for eight other emergency demolition projects. Mikesell Excavating’s bid of $ 80,400 for all eight projects was the lowest at $ 13,100. The offers were taken under advisement.
