Ottawa City Commission has scheduled public hearings May 1 for three dilapidated properties being considered for condemnation.

The structures under consideration include:

• Carriage house at 619 S. Elm St.

• Single-family dwelling at 735 N. Mulberry St.

• Single-family dwelling at 923 E. Ninth St.

All three properties have been deemed by city staff to be unsafe and unfit to occupy. Wynndee Lee, Ottawa planning and codes director, outlined for commissioners Monday the city’s correspondence with the owners, which has not resulted in the owners taking steps to repair or remove the structures.

The public hearings on all three structures will take place 7 p.m. May 1 in commission chambers at City Hall, 101 S. Hickory St., Ottawa.
