      East Albany eyesore taken down

      Commissioner Jon Howard announced in Tuesday morning's city commission the demolition of something in his ward that he wasn't pleased with.

      Howard referred to the China Palace restaurant in the 300 block of East Oglethorpe Blvd. as an "eyesore." Howard said this building has needed to be demolished for a long time now, and Tuesday, it is finally being taken care of.

      As for what's next for that plot of land, Howard says the area has a lot of traffic and he hopes a nice restaurant or something along the lines of that will take China Palace's place.
