Mayor launches 'Operation Redemption' for South Side


Mayor Jay Williams is vowing that 25 vacant houses, suspected of being havens for criminals, on the city’s South Side near St. Dominic Church will be demolished by the end of the year.

Calling the project “Operation Redemption,” Williams said most of the houses are on Lucius and Auburndale avenues and Southern Boulevard.

Williams made the announcement outside the church on East Lucius Avenue during a Saturday prayer vigil planned as a response to a series of recent violent crimes.
