The face of Uniontown is about to be changed with two buildings on the city’s square being condemned.
At a Uniontown City Council meeting on January 8, the city held a public hearing for the structures owned by Mary Beerbower and Hartman J. Kite respectively.
Following the meeting, legal notices were published in the Fort Scott Tribune stating that the owners have until July 21, 2018, to remove the buildings and make the premises safe and secure.
The owners are cooperating with the council, Mayor Larry Jurgensen said.
“They both are in agreement they should come down,” Jurgensen said. “And they are getting it taken down themselves.”
Mary Beerbower had a business located in her building, the easternmost one, called Mary’s Cafe. The other building was vacant and the ceiling had caved in.
The structures are located on the south side of the square at 112A Second Street.
