ALBANY, GA (WALB) - South Albany property owner Shane Harris is paying a company to tear down 17 blighted structures on Hickory Lane.

The job is almost complete. Code Enforcement officers worked with Harris to register the vacant units. He finally opted to get rid of what had become a safe haven for illegal activity.       

"I'm just thankful that this owner has taken it upon himself to demolish these structures. Probably saved us about $100,000," said said Code Enforcement Director Mike Tilson.    

When the city does demolish property, a lien is placed against that property until that expense is paid back.
