TIFFIN, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Officials in Tiffin are
working on a plan to tear down two buildings they bought earlier this week on
The former home of the
Pryzm Hotel, and the warehouse directly behind it have become an eyesore in
"The hotel has been vacant
for probably approximately 10 years," said Tiffin Council President Paul
On Monday, city council
approved the purchase of the two buildings for $120,000, using money from their
Venture Capital Fund. The previous owner showed no signs of doing anything with
the property, so the city stepped in.
"Let's get it down," said
Councilman Jim Roberts. "It's not going to do us any good sitting there, as it
is, right now."
Demolition is expected to
cost around $75,000, which is more than what's left in the Venture Capital
Fund, so yesterday council approved to allow the city to take bids for
demolition, hoping the bidding process will lower the final cost.
But officials say the
final total will be money well spent.
"We're going to make some
good use of the funds, and help create some economic development for the City
of Tiffin," Elchert said.
No concrete plans are in
place yet for the property after demolition, but officials know whatever goes
in will be better than the current vacant buildings that left a bad first
impression on visitors.
"This is the first thing
they see after the cross the river bridge," said Roberts. "We just hope it will
revitalize the city and revitalize the citizens a little bit."
