Bay County Commissioners heard from Bay City Housing Commission CEO Bill Phillips about a plan to demolish seven blighted homes in an area of the city bounded by Columbus, McKinley, Washington and Madison.

Phillips explained none of the houses made it off the County Land Bank list as they were deemed too far gone to be rehabilitated.

City Commissioners approved the agreement as part of their agenda Tuesday. The deal involving the city, the  Housing Commission and the County Treasurer will be financed with Housing Commission dollars. Demolition should begin in the spring.
