(Manhattan, Kansas, May 14, 2020) A building damaged during the 2018 Labor Day Flood is scheduled to begin demolition next week. The structure located at 3003 Anderson Avenue will be razed and a slab floor will be left when finished. There are no anticipated hazards to the public during the project.

The Manhattan Fire Department Risk Reduction Division attempted to gain compliance with the owner of the building but was unsuccessful. The building was deemed unsafe through a public process and a deadline was set for the owner to repair or remove the dangerous structure. When no significant improvements were made by the deadline, the City accepted bids for demolition and removal.

REMCO Demolition LLC, of Leavenworth, Kansas submitted the lowest bid and was awarded the project.  The work must be complete within 30 days of May 11th, 2020. The total cost of the demolition and removal is $49,810 and will be paid by the City of Manhattan General Fund. The City will attempt to recover the costs from the owner and any unpaid balance may be assessed against the parcel as a special assessment and recovered through property tax collection.
