  Original Published: 2/13/2014Demolition of the old Woodville Elementary School began Thursday. Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker and other city officials participated in the demolition that kicked off a 7:30 a.m. with Zanesville contractor Russ James Contracting. Theaker said the demolition of the former school has been on going for more than a year. He said the property has been an eyesore for too long in the neighborhood. The former school was built in 1957 and closed in 1987. The demolition is expected to last three weeks. The demolition will cost $37,500 and will be covered through the federal housing grant. Mayor Theaker said the city is still undecided on what it will do with the property once the demolition is complete.
