List & Photos: Properties to Be Razed by City of Covington

UPDATE (Wednesday 7:25 a.m.) The city commission approved the demolitions at an increased cost of $710,000 on Tuesday night. Meetings will be held in February to discuss possibilities for the future vacant lots.

ORIGINAL POST:

The Covington City Commission is expected to approve an expenditure of $680,000 from the capital improvements fund on Tuesday night that would permit the demolition of more than forty vacant city-owned properties.

The foreclosure process will be initiated on another twenty.
