Owners of property in Kenmare consisting of uninhabitable homes or other types of structures may be eligible for a grant from the Kenmare Community Development Corporation to demolish those structures.
The Kenmare Community Development Corporation will pay up to $3500 to demolish structures if eligible for the program.
The city will benefit by having eyesores removed from the neighborhoods. Property owners will benefit by having a parcel that is more attractive for selling. If the property owner has no desire to sell the property, they may be able to benefit by getting their property tax rate lowered because the lot has become vacant.
If interested, contact Jamie Livingston, treasurer of the Kenmare Community Development Corporation, for an application. Call 701-385-4287.
