Council Approves Demolition Of Former Word Church Building

The former Word Church building in Akron will soon be coming down.

The structure on Manchester Road has sat empty for years.

City Council on Monday night approved a request from Mayor Shammas Malik to authorize an emergency demolition.

Plans are for the building, called a public safety hazard by city officials, to be brought down in March.

The project is expected to cost around 1-point-2-million dollars and city officials say they plan to seek repayment of those funds from The Word Church.
