The city of Macon once again is demolishing blighted homes as part of their ongoing cleanup plan.
They started a new round of demolitions on Wednesday.
City crews destroyed this house at 2292 Belmont Avenue as firefighters washed away the lingering dust.
Mayor Robert Reichert says the process to seize the homes and tear them down is slow, but he hopes to bring a sense of hope to the community.
Some neighbors told us they're pleased.
"I feel good about it, it's something they should have did because the houses have been just sitting and not doing nothing with them."
Reichert says they've demolished hundreds of homes since he took office, but are still working their way through the city's list.
They plan to tear down one hundred homes this year and one hundred twenty houses next year.
