GOSHEN — The Elkhart County Board of Commissioners has requested $40,000 to demolish five buildings that have been deemed unsafe by the county and another $10,000 to mow yards that property owners have neglected.

The money for mowing and demolition would come from the county’s environmental special projects fund, an account that originally included money generated by the landfill and later by a tax increment financing district set up in the area.

“In order to be demolished, the planning department administers the county’s unsafe building ordinance, and there’s usually a notice and a whole process they go through including a hearing with the Board of Zoning Appeals hearing officer who issues the order for the structure to be demolished,” county administrator Tom Byers explained.

The five buildings in Elkhart County that will be demolished are located at 22257 C.R. 6, 65821 C.R. 31, 25408 C.R. 26, 54260 Baldwin Court and 25236 Medford St.

 FILE - In this Sept. 25, 2013 file photo, Scott Small, and other National Forest Service crew members work to restore terrain that was bulldozed for a firebreak in the battle against Rim Fire on a nordic ski trail along Dodge Ridge in the Stanislaus National Forest, near Tuolumne City, Calif. The Forest Service says it will release a final decision Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014, on how much timber to log from the Sierra Nevada's largest wildfire in recorded history. Last year's Rim Fire burned 400 square miles including parts of Yosemite. A debate has since raged about sending burned and dead trees to lumber mills or leave them and let nature take its course.
