The burned out house located at 23 Grove Ave. was demolished Monday as part of the Restore New York Grant project. In an earlier conversation, Mayor Joseph Maiurano had said the house has been boarded up for nearly 30 years. According to City Code Enforcement Officer Jason Lawrence nearly 40,000 honey bees had to be removed from the house before the demolition could begin. Burrell’s Excavating began tearing down the house around 10 a.m. Monday. The company has also taken down the house located on city owned properties on Front Street and Fair Street.
