Demolition & Abatement

The Demolition and Abatement program is a tool to assist the community and neighborhoods, by removing buildings that are dangerous, blighted, and structurally unsound. These buildings have been abandoned and/or not economically feasible to repair. In many instances property owners cannot be found or they do not have the financial means to pay for the demolition.

The program is currently funded by two sources: General Funds & Fire Insurance Proceeds.

The Fire Insurance Proceeds Fund is established by Kansas State Statute and City Ordinance.  It is a funding tool to ensure that insured structures significantly damaged by fire, explosion, and windstorm are repaired accordingly or demolished to eliminate the nuisance and blight.
