Mayor Eric Papenfuse will hold a press conference at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2017, at the Mt. Olive Baptist Church, located at the corner of South 14th and Magnolia Streets, to announce the purchase of homes affected by the sink holes in the area. 

“We are pleased to be able to announce the completion of the process to purchase homes in the area of South 14th Street that are directly impacted by the sink holes,” said Mayor Papenfuse. “This process will continue through the end of the year when we expect to have completed the purchasing process for 52 properties.” 

Thanks to support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, the City will begin purchasing the homes on Tuesday, with at least 10 acts of sale slated to be completed this week.
