CURWENSVILLE – Vacant properties were a topic of discussion at Monday night’s Curwensville Borough Council meeting.
Council said the borough currently has four properties that are “beyond repair” and that need to be torn down. It was noted that of those, there was a potential buyer for the vacant property on George Street.
Council approved to send notices to all property owners, giving them 90 days to address the property issues. If the George Street property doesn’t sell, the current owner will receive the same notice.
Council also reported that demolition work along Thompson Street was almost cleared out, and the project is on schedule to be completed in March.
