Demolition of the McKeenan Apartments at 305 S. Elm street began on June 17. Trent Tiemeyer, of Southwest Iowa Parking Lot and Maintenance, states the demolition of the building should take about one week. The demolition of the building was approved by Shenandoah City Council earlier this year and the city plans to sell the property upon completion of the project. City Administrator, AJ Lyman stated that an interested buyer has already inquired about the purchase of the lot. "That’s really the goal with this type of project. We want to get rid of those building that cannot be rehabbed and sale the lot to buyers who want to build." said Lyman.
