CADIZ – Three local communities facing problems with dilapidated structures are seeing some results through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program.

Cadiz Village Council discussed the program, which uses federal stimulus funds to remove unsightly structures in a venture with the Harrison County Community Improvement Corp.

Village Council President Curt Crawshaw said buildings were demolished with more to go. “They’ve started to tear down buildings,” he said. “There’s a list of 10 houses. I’m sure the citizens appreciate it.”
