MIDDLETOWN — Middletown City Council on Tuesday gave formal approval to contracts to the lowest and best bidder for the demolition of two houses under the federal Community Development Block Grant annual demolition plan that happened in January. Vickers Demolition was awarded the demolition contracts totalling $57,500.
The house located at 209 Yankee Road was demolished for $29,000 and the house located at 19 S. Clinton St. was demolished for $28,500, according to Susan Cohen, administrative services director.
In her report, Cohen said both properties were determined to be uninhabitable and represented a risk of safety to the public.
She said the contracts were on the agenda to clean up the paperwork so the city can receive its CDBG reimbursement and to make sure the records were easily auditable.
