Coraopolis is continuing efforts to demolish vacant houses.
Homes at 1424 and 1731 Hiland and 536 Fifth avenues will be demolished by year-end, following asbestos abatement.
Minniefield Demolition Services of West Mifflin will complete the work. A Community Development Block Grant will cover the $51,850 cost.
“Once completed, that will be seven demos we did this year,” Borough Manager Ray McCutcheon said. Properties at 1013 and 1110 Montour are slated for next year.
