Albany - - Eyesores in Albany are being cleaned up. The city is picking up the pace of demolition. 

Albany Enforcement Director Mike Tilson says the city is serious about cleaning up dilapidated homes and businesses.

In less than a year, the city tore down four properties and forced owners to demolish six others.

Six more properties are on the city's to-do list. Demolition could begin any day now.  

"We have half a dozen properties that are going through asbestos abatement right now and then we'll be sending public works over there to take them down," Tilson says.

The Enforcement Department just listed on its web site all of the properties they're working on.

They hope investors might purchase some properties before the city tears them down.
