Freeport, Illinois — Did anyone ever think the day would come where the news of the day is that the city of Freeport is demolishing homes?
If we had to guess, probably not.
According to multiple sources, city leaders in Freeport have another hefty goal in 2018, this year to demolish 80 homes in the city. Last year about $240,000 of your tax dollars were used to pay for these demolitions, including grant money the city received.
A list of properties and the exact number of homes to be demolished is not avilable at this time.
