Here's an update to a story News 4 first told you about yesterday.

The city has approved for some residential homes to be demolished.

Under the Housing Code Abatement Program, city officials inspect houses for code violations.

Owners of the houses that don't meet standards are given steps to improve the homes before city officials consider demolition.

However, four out of five of the houses haven't met the standards and are coming down.

The city commission is giving one property owner more time before the house will be leveled.

Commissioners say the man may get another permit before the other one expires.

The city hasn't determined when the demolitions will take place.
