20’s ERA APARTMENTS BITE THE DUST – The South Main Apartments at 421 South Main kept their long overdue appointment with a track hoe on Tuesday, July 8. By 2 p.m. the two story, 4,356 sq. ft. structure was a pile of rubble.

The house had been cited by the city several months ago as an unsafe structure and the owners, Ernie and Bennie Brower, applied for and received a demolition permit within the last couple of weeks.

According to City Manager Bruce Rogers, several other owners of unsafe structures have applied for demolition permits.
