Despite the third reading and adoption of an ordinance calling for the removal of a dilapidated home located at the corner of Cedar and Red Bud streets in Mountain Home, the property has received the possibility of a new life.In its regular monthly meeting Thursday night, the Mountain Home City Council voted to remove the home located at 819 Cedar Street as part of the city’s efforts to crack down on “unsightly” and dangerous properties. New information brought to the city has earned the property a temporary stay, explains Mountain Home Mayor Hillrey Adams.
The council also authorized waiving competitive bidding on multiple items related to the water treatment plant. Among those were three Dodge trucks, eight pumps and accessories, an aerator/mixer and work on the electrical generator system. The mayor says most of the items are specialized and are replacing parts that have been in use for almost three decades.
Mayor Adams gives an update on the status of the project.
