Council President Mick Donato said council took action at the special meeting and provided the property owner notification that the city will get an appraisal of the property on Friday. The eminent domain action could be halted if an agreement is reached, he said.
Donato said the house would be razed as part of the S. Water St. project, which is slated to begin in late summer or early fall. The project would eliminate a blind spot for drivers when the road is widened and drainage issues are addressed.
The city will pave S. Water St. to the corporation limit, where it becomes Moravian Trail Rd., Donato said.
