Land financial institution eyes Mosaic Tile home, potential revenue stream

Ivy clings to the brick sign proclaiming the abandoned building on Pershing Road to be the former home of The Mosaic Tile Company. The city hopes a new owner will be able to clean up the property and put it to use.

ZANESVILLE – The Muskingum County Reutilization Corporation, better recognised as the land financial institution, got the scope of the challenge awaiting them must they decide to choose possession of the previous Mosaic Tile Enterprise property on Pershing Road in Zanesville. And the board is wanting at expanding its funding via the delinquent tax and evaluation fund, which would permit it to deal with larger jobs these as the Mosaic a person. 

Eight companies expressed fascination in tackling the demolition of the Mosaic complicated, but the land financial institution been given estimates from only 3 of them right before its latest meeting.

Common to just about every of the 3 estimates is a list of items the estimates do not deal with that is longer than what they do cover. Chief among the them, none of the estimates go over asbestos remediation. Thankfully, said Land Lender Govt Director Andrew Roberts, screening did not reveal the existence of any other harmful supplies.

All three firms gave estimates to demolish the total 23-building elaborate, and yet another estimate to retain some of the structures that could be salvaged.
