The Richland County Foundation is helping the city of Mansfield begin the demolition process of abandoned and blighted properties in the city through the Moving Ohio Forward Demolition Program.
  

Mansfield City Council accepted a grant for $50,000 from the foundation in support of the Moving Ohio Forward Demolition Program at their regular council meeting Tuesday Night.

Mansfield-Richland County Fair Housing Officer Donnie Mitchell worked with the foundation to secure the grant.

Under the Moving Ohio Forward Demolition Program, cities are reimbursed after the demolitions are done.
  

Mayor Tim Theaker said the city did not have the funding to begin the demolitions in order to receive the reimbursement.

"Basically we have to have some seed money upfront to tear down the homes and then you submit those invoices to the state for payment. We're grateful and thankful that the Richland County Foundation continues to support the city of Mansfield," Theaker said.

 The funding for the Moving Ohio Forward Demolition Grant Program came from Ohio's share of $330 million of a $25 billion federal-state settlement agreement with five national mortgage servicers in a case involving deceptive mortgage practices and foreclosure abuses.
 

In other business council, approved the sale of the former sewer department building at 135 Park Ave. East to developers James and Elizabeth Oberlin.
 

Mayor Theaker said three businesses will be moving into the facility creating new jobs in the area.

Council also accepted a grant for $100,000 from the National Institute of Justice under the Forensic DNA Backlog Reduction Program and a Drug Use Prevention Grant for $31,547.12 from the Office of the Ohio Attorney General.
