BURTON — The city is starting the process of investigation potential nuisance or hazardous condition of properties.

There will be a public hearings March 18-20 allowing 20 days notice to property taxpayers for the scheduled hearings.

Mayor Paula Zelenko said if the city demolishes these properties it will make the community and surrounding area look better and it will also help motivate residents to clean up a bit.

“It becomes infections and property values will go up,” said Zelenko.

There has been a significant decrease in property value over the years.

There are several steps before these properties will be demolished.

“This will be a year where there will be many of these properties before city council,” said Zelenko.

The city may be able to do this or it may have to be contracted out.

Zelenko said she the owners could come forward and improve the property before demolishing begins.

The process will take most of 2013.

“It is something that will help the property to go back up where they need to be,” said Zelenko.
