The county had bought out homes and then sold them to a company that would move them out of the area, but the city refused to let any houses be moved since trees would need to be taken out in the process.

The county decided today to just demolish those homes and refund the movers who bought them. It'll costs them about 60 thousand dollars to do so.

“Clean that mess up so as difficult as it is for me to say that's what we should do, I guess that's what we should do.”

The homeowners in Briarwood waiting to be bought out will still get the full appraised amount.
