Silver Lake Council moves forward on Main Street buildings

The Silver Lake City Council took significant steps toward the demolition of four buildings on Main Street at its Monday night meeting.
The council approved a purchase agreement with Sumter Mutual Insurance for the purchase of its former office building at 117 Main Street for $22,000.
The council also voted to begin condemnation proceedings to acquire the building at 129 Main Street, which is owned by Mayor Bruce Bebo, for $17,500.
Because Bebo is a city official, the process will go through the court system to eliminate any conflict of interest.
Both acquisitions are expected to take place by the end of September.
The two buildings are adjoining two buildings which are falling down, and which the city  already acquired through tax forfeiture and blight proceedings.
The council also approved an agreement with Short Elliot Hendrickson, Inc., (SEH) for the inspection of hazardous materials and asbestos on the two buildings the city has agreed to purchase and the preparation of demo specifications for the four buildings for $3,450 and $13,500 respectively.
