Demolition Bidding Process To Begin On Fourth Street Properties



One blighted Emporium building has come down, and another is now slated for demolition.

The former Jasper Harris & Son building located on East Fourth Street is officially down, and grading and finishing work will occur over the next several days. Demolition was completed ahead of the June 18 completion date given by Earthworks Unlimited of Kylertown, the construction company tasked with the difficult and time-consuming work.

“It was a very arduous taking down process, but not the worst Earthworks has ever done,” stated Cameron County Commissioner Lori Reed, who spoke to members of the construction crew prior to Thursday’s commissioners meeting.
