Tribune photo by Aaron Piper/ The Former Kruwell Block Inc. property at the corner of Eighth and Elm streets in Seymour is planned to be demolished and cleaned by the owners of Cooper Concrete. There are no further plans for the building, which sits in a residential area on the city's northside.
Chad Cooper wasn’t expecting a pat on the back or even a thank-you from anyone for cleaning up an old concrete block and brick plant at Eighth and Elm streets in Seymour.
But Mayor Craig Luedeman was so impressed by the result, he decided to present Cooper with the first Seymour Shine Award.
The city has created the program through the planning and zoning department to encourage residents and business owners to take care of their properties and to recognize those who make noticeable improvements.
