Officials in Grant Town are desperately trying bring businesses back their neighborhood. But the town has been faced with more than enough funding problems.

As of now, town council is looking to revamp the streets of grant town by tearing down abandoned buildings. But because no funding is available for them, it must all be done by hand.

Council members say have been looking to bring businesses back in the town for years now, and they would like to put a new face on parts of the town that have become an eye sore as the years have passed.

"It's definitely a safety issue, there's no doubt about that. It's a nuisance, and it's an eye sore, and it's a public hazard because we have
kids that walk back and forth on this road, and were scared that this is going to fall down on somebody, or on to the highway where it's going to hit a car or something." said Grant Town Council Member Charles Rosic

Town council hopes to begin more building demolitions within the next month so the rebuilding phase can begin in the early spring.
