  Original Published: 8/15/2013 Three bids were opened Thursday morning, for the demolition of 32 vacant homes in Mansfield. The contractors attended the bid opening, hosted by Mayor Tim Theaker and Community Development Director Donnie Mitchell. Theaker says this is another round in the effort to rid Mansfield of its many dilapidated houses. This work is being paid for with Richland County's share of the national foreclosure settlement with banks found to have engaged in predatory mortgage lending. That money dries-up at the end of this year, so Mansfield is seeking voter approval of a quarter-percent income tax, with 20-percent of the revenue going to demolition. The 32 houses should be gone by the end of the year.
