City Attorney Andy Hoover updated the Board of Mayor and Alderman in a work session on the status of several dilapidated properties throughout the city of Pulaski.
The board inquired in an earlier meeting what could be done to address buildings and properties that create an eyesore for visitors and residents alike.
Hoover outlined that a dilapidated structure as being a “house that is unfit, from outside appearance, for human habitation,” and convey cooperation by property owners without litigation.
There remain a few properties Hoover said that will likely enter litigation or are already in litigation due to their uninhabitable status. Hoover detailed the lengthy legal process of condemning a property such as contacting all possible heirs.
In other business during the work session, Pulaski Electric System CEO Richard Kelley told the board that the main utility lines along North First Street have been relocated and ready for the sidewalk project.
