Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner presided over the city s 300th demolition yesterday, completing one of his goals for the year.
Demolished was a vacant two-story house at 714 Palmwood Ave. The house and a vacant parcel on each side are owned by Jessie Skipper et al and are in foreclosure, according to the Lucas County auditor s Web site.
The mayor said abandoned homes are unsafe and hurt the local neighborhood.
