Iowa City continues home demolitions


IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Friday Iowa City officials began their third batch of home demolitions in the flood-damaged Parkview neighborhood.

So far crews has knocked down around 20 homes.

Many people in the area opted for the city to buyout their home after flood waters poured through the neighborhood.

The city has had no problem keeping up with FEMA regulations.

"Our goal is to knock these houses down within 90 days of purchase, and we're living up to that goal," said Shaun Bradbury, Special Projects Administrator for Iowa City.

The city has six more demolitions to complete in the next 90 days.
