Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan has introduced a plan to address vacant buildings in the city.

The mayor's spokeswoman, Ellen Lander-Nischt, says city council has received complaints about abandoned buildings throughout the city for a while. 

“Mayor Horrigan was a ward councilperson himself years ago, and a persistent problem has been vacant commercial or industrial buildings in Akron that has basically been neglected for years.”
