ELKHART The city of Elkhart is cleaning up vacant buildings. Two empty homes will soon be torn down.
The first is located in the 1300 block of Franklin Street. It has been empty since 2010. The Elkhart Truth reports that the city is still working with the owner to determine who will cover the costs. The owner says it shouldn't be his responsibility, because the legal sales process was never completed.
Another home less than two blocks away will also be torn down. It is located in the 1500 block of Krau. It was damaged in a 2011 fire.
