Hoosac Valley High School will host town meeting for the first time. The school district land is within its two regional partners — Adams and Cheshire — but the bulk of the property and the entire school building is in Cheshire.
The first of four blighted properties to be demolished this spring was taken down Thursday morning.
The first on the docket was 49-55 John Street. The property is one Mayor Linda Tyer had campaigned in front of during her first bid for office four years ago and was removed the morning Tyer announced her second bid for the corner office.
Karen Ferrara says she's put up with the abandoned house at 45 Edgewood for years. The dilapidated building was on the demolition list for this fiscal year but then delayed to give a local developer time to clear the title.
Two more homes have been added to the demolition list.
The Board of Health issued orders of demolition for 33 Circular Avenue and 217 Robbins Avenue. The two adds to a list of homes the city demolishes because of unsafe conditions.
The Board of Health upheld both a demolition order on a multi-unit building on John Street and a suspension of Thing or Two's tobacco license.
Thing or Two Variety on Francis Avenue will have its tobacco licenses suspended for seven days following a number of violations. Health Director Gina Armstrong said on May 10, inspectors from the Tri-Town Health Department found flavored tobacco products in stock. Such products were banned dating back to sweeping new tobacco regulations crafted in 2014
