OKLAHOMA CITY -

A contract to demolish seven buildings in a fire- and decay-prone apartment complex was approved Tuesday.

The Oklahoma City City Council voted to approve a $234,652 contract with K&M Dirt Services to demolish several buildings at the Lantana Apartments, 7408 NW 10. 

The apartment complex was condemned shortly shortly after the homicide of a pizza delivery driver in the complex. The complex has sat empty and has become prone to several suspected arson fires.

City council members decided to vote on demolishing part of the complex after repeated calls for firefighters and code enforcement have resulted in unrecovered costs for the City.

Code enforcement at the property has cost nearly $73,000 in the last seven years, with the City receiving only about $41,600 in payments from the property owner, Oklahoma City spokeswoman Kristy Yager said.
