Daily News

The Village of Palestine continues to move ahead with the condemnation and removal of two properties on Main Street.

The village has been working to improve or remove two properties on Main Street owned by David Matteson. Mayor Rob Byrley told trustees at Thursday night's village-board meeting that plans for the demolition of the south building are moving ahead with testing for asbestos coming soon.

He said he recently examined the north building with Matteson, who has been working to shore up the foundation in the building.

The village has given Matteson until April to make improvements to that building before proceeding with condemnation.

Trustees confirmed April 18-20 for Spring cleanup in the village and October 17-19 for fall cleanup.

A representative from the Palestine Preservation Projects Society told the board they are planning to add a handicap-accessible entrance to the Fife Opera House. The group is planning to improve the south entrance to the building for a handicap access, which will include a ramp that will extend out onto the sidewalk at that part of the building.

Byrley said the village will work with the PPPS when they have architectural drawings ready to be reviewed.
