BROCKTON, IL. (ECWd) -
The Village of Brocton obtained an approval to demolish dilapidated pieces of property, 102 and 103 E. 3d Street, within its corporate limits.
The purpose was to tear a couple buildings down due to becoming safety hazards and eyesores in the past few years.
We were asked to look into whether or not the proper permits were obtained for the tear-down, and it appears the village and its contractors do have the proper permits. The village obtained the proper asbestos inspection, and the village obtained approval from the Edgar County Tax Agent. These can be seen below (contractor's permit will be uploaded tomorrow after I receive them).
