58 CR flood-damaged homes to be demolished

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- Crews will begin demolishing 58 flood-damaged structures in Cedar Rapids next week.

The city hired DW Zinser Company of Walford to tear down the buildings, which are considered dangerous and will be removed under a nuisance abatement ordinance. They were damaged last year when flood waters enveloped the city.

Work is scheduled to begin Tuesday morning.

Cedar Rapids will request funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to pay for the work.
