Stryker Targets Abandoned Homes


By: James Pruitt

A letter will be drafted by the village solicitor to the owners of eight homes that need to be cleaned up or demolished. The village will seek CDBG funding next year to pay for the demolition.

The fire department is planning on using one vacant home for training purposes.

The fire department will be hosting a fundraiser called “Jaws Jam,” Aug. 20, to raise money for new hydraulic tools.

A local teen won permission to beautify the town hall as part of her Girl Scout project. Kimberly Stuckey will plant several bushes that will require little maintenance. The youth says the cost will be around $1,500.

Field Training Officer Zack Erb was sworn in to the Stryker Police Department.
