The six-unit building at the top of Cliff has been vacant for some time and was blocked off with jersey barriers a few weeks ago when the front threatened to collapse.

Mayor Richard Alcombright said an "all-call" was sent out to neighbors to let them know staging for the demolition would begin Tuesday or Wednesday.

"The road will always be open but people may want to avoid it," he said.

The property was taken for taxes last

BFAIR's Snack Attack opened at Windsor Lake on Memorial Day.

That changed on Memorial Day when the stand reopened under the auspices of the employment services division of Berkshire Family and Individual Resources. A ribbon cutting on
