Regional Planner Dan Eberhardt says 19 structures in the northeast corner of the county had to be addressed after the devastating flood of 2008.

He says about 2/3 of them have already been demolished, with the remaining 6 in Huron Township to be taken down within the next few weeks.

The lots are as large as three acres.

The future of the building is back in the news after mold was discovered on the third floor, which houses the Des Moines County Attorney’s office.
