Massillon Special Meeting Addresses Failing Downtown Buildings

MASSILLON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Four buildings have been torn down in downtown Massillon since the beginning of the year.
A few had partially collapsed before the wrecking ball came along.
Councilman Jamie Slutz wants to minimize that option in the future, especially with some buildings being over a hundred years old.
There’s a special meeting of council’s Health Welfare and Safety Committee at 5:30 Monday to address the issue.
It’s a real concern with some property owners not keeping their buildings up to code.
Slutz says the downtown needs to be preserved.
