Aldermen heard from real estate agent Qureda Wigfield, speaking on behalf of Mike Mabry, owner of the abandoned property located at 614 Eastland.

Wigfield explained that the property is in the process of being sold, and the sale should be closed by the end of the month. She said the buyer plans to renovate the house and use it as rental property.
