City gets busy tearing down buildings.....

They are calling it the "Reclaiming Colorado City" campaign, and it got underway yesterday downtown as the bulldozers began demolishing old buildings that had been on the City's hit list.

This was the old hotel behind 7-11 on 2nd street. The City has decided to leave the 2 story structure standing for now, but wasted no time demolishing the hotel rooms and even the house behind the structure.

Local police were kept busy watching over traffic as all the demolition got underway downtown yesterday morning.

That old white 2 story building has housed many businesses over the years.

That Mack truck is getting a workout!
