The Commission also approved the setting of two hearings for the Condemnation of properties at 114 W. Coolidge and 1011 E. 8th Street. The hearing will be April 26th. The Commissioners also rescinded the Condemnation of properties at 520 N. Nebraska, 917 N. New York, and 718 S.

The Housing Department was given approval to apply for the 2011 USDA Mutual Self-Help Housing Grant. If awarded he amount of the Grant would be for $317,000.00 which would assist in the construction of 18 homes.
