Thomasville-  Several Thomasville eyesores could soon disappear from sight. 

Thomasville City Council Tuesday considered demolishing two unfit homes at 132 Forrest Street and 313 Victoria Place. Property owners failed to show at a meeting to discuss the homes future. The cost of demolition will fall to the owners. 

"Most of these properties, the cost to repair is more than 50 percent of the value of the building so you get into some really huge costs to repair these buildings and most owners don't have the type of money to restore the buildings," said Gwen Cooper Williams, Thomasville Planning Director. 

The City Manager will consider another seven buildings for demolition next month.
