JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ.)
The Jefferson City council meant on Monday night to discuss properties along Capitol Avenue.
The Jefferson City council approved funding for 14 properties along East Capitol Avenue in April. The city says the homes are dangerous and need to be demolished if action is not taken.
City council member Ryan Moehlman says the next step of the project is a second round structural assessment of the properties, which is due on Sept 30. The council says it's looking to have this information available to the public soon.
Moehlman says the city will then have until Jan 6 to determine which buildings need to be demolished.
The following properties are considered dangerous in Jefferson City:
- 109 Adams St
- 113 Adams St.
- 401 E. Capitol Ave.
- 407 E. Capitol Ave.
- 409 E. Capitol Ave.
- 410 E. Capitol Ave.
- 413 E. Capitol Ave.
- 419 E. Capitol Ave.
- 517 E. Capitol Ave.
- 104 Jackson St.
- 108 Jackson St.
- 415 Commercial Way
- 114 Jackson St.
- 429 E. Capitol Ave.
However, councilman, Ron Fitzwater says all properties deemed dangerous could be repaired if someone were to invest in them.
"We would like to save as many as possible if we have people that want to invest in them. I mean the city's not going to invest in them, but our goal would be if there are individuals that want them in the community that wants to invest the dollars. We'd like to see that," Fitzwater said.
The April vote approved $575,000 in funding to fix or eliminate the properties. The money would also be used to pay back the Jefferson City Housing Authority.
