A crew from Luginbill Excavating made short work of the demolition of a residence on the northeast corner of Jefferson and Third streets in Decatur on Wednesday.
As pedestrians gathered and motorists drove past to see, the former Richard Roudebush home was razed in anticipation of converting the site into a green space area to be used by the Adams Public Library System.
Members of the Adams County Regional Sewer District board hope to know by next month the future of a proposed a proposed $4.5 million sewer project to serve the rural areas of Monmouth, Bobo, Pleasant Mills and Arcadia Village.
What shape that project takes, if any, will largely depend on upcoming negotiations with Decatur officials over ancillary costs associated with treating sewage from the outlying areas.
