Monday evening, Windsor City Council will receive a recommendation from administration to move forward with the demolition of the former Grace Hospital buildings.

The City of Windsor purchased the building and property one week ago for 2.3 million dollars, and promised to “take immediate action to clean up the area.”

Earlier this week contractors were on site cutting down the tall grass and weeds.

If council approves the demolition, city administration will issue request for tender to demolish and clean up the property with that process wrapping up on January 8th 2013.  They hope to have contractions on the site on January 14th 2013 and have the entire site cleaned up by the summer.

Cost for complete site clean up is estimate to be between 2 million and 4.5 million.  The city will look for funding from the Ministry of Finance and any other Provincial Ministry to cover the cost.
