ALBANY, GA (WALB) – You should soon see more dilapidated old homes in Albany coming down.

The city just worked out contracts with several companies to demolish 22 eyesores. They contracted out the work to free up Albany Public works crews to handle their other duties.

Demolishing the 22 houses will cost the city about $94,000.

"Every single one that we can bring down is one less that the community has to deal with, the public is welcomed to call 311 and let us know if they have any concerns about a particular piece or property, I invited that," said Mike Tilson, Albany Code Enforcement Director.

After a meeting next week, contractors will begin the work.

Code enforcement expects all the houses should be razed within the next 30 to 45 days.
