Flood damaged Linn County buildings to be demolished

Cedar Rapids (KWWL) -- Demolition will start Monday on 18 Linn County buildings damaged by the floods of 2008.

Central States Contracting out of Cedar Falls was awarded the $272,180 contract.  Linn County will be reimbursed 90% of the cost by FEMA and 10% from the state.

The buildings to be demolished are part of the 403 Imminent Threat Demolition Program which provides funding for removal of structures that are in imminent threat of partial or complete collapse or that are deemed a threat to public health. 

The property owners retain ownership of the land and may rebuild as long as floodplain, zoning, and building requirements are met.

18 property owners have agreed to have these structures removed as part of the voluntary program.

The demolitions are expected to be done by Thanksgiving.

Nearly 14 additional qualifying buildings will be demolished in a second phase of the program at a later time.
