Another flood-prone building near downtown Findlay is coming down. Crews from ALL Excavating & Demolition started tearing down Nicki’s bar on North Main Street earlier this week. The county had tried to buy the building as part of flood reduction efforts for several years. They were able to buy it after the owner of the bar passed away last year.
A FEMA grant is helping pay for the work. The building cost the county $145,000 to buy and just under $36,000 to demolish. It was the last building standing on the east side of North Main Street just north of the Blanchard River.
