Check out the latest on the City of Muncie’s demolitions. This is a second in a series of columns Larry Riley has written. The first had four properties which were vacant, yet the City Building Commissioner’s company demolished four buildings. There was no demolition permit attached. The properties had been empty lots for years. Several people commented on the article confirming the lots were vacant, too.
In the second article, Mayor Tyler said it was a mistake and gave the correct addresses which weren’t close to the ones on the original invoices. Not to mention, the cost of the demolitions were much higher than others by private companies. Oh, wait, the building commissioner’s company is a private company. Pardon me.
Oh, and there is no Conflict of Interest Muncie 2015 on file with the State of Indiana. Craig Nichols’ company is not there. Class D felony for not filing. I’m sure this missing conflict of interest forms will surface. Probably in the desk of the former city clerk as she more than likely just forgot to file with the State.
And, and…the City of Muncie received $4 million from the State of Indiana who received millions from the Federal government for the demolition of blighted properties. Nothing has been done with that money and it’s been a few years. Probably the building commissioner’s company is way too busy tearing down vacant lots to take on any new city contracts.
This is about enough excitement one can handle for a Saturday evening in this fair city.
Until next time…..
