Debris must still be cleared from the two-block business district in Hubbard that was damaged by a natural gas explosion December 7th of last year. Nearly every business in Hubbard’s downtown area had some sort of damage. Next week, bids will be accepted to demolish whatever’s left. Officials say the demolition could cost up to 300-thousand dollars. Insurance money, a 60-thousand dollar state grant and other donations will help business owners cover that cost. After the demolition’s complete, a portion of the downtown area will be vacant because many business owners don’t have the money to rebuild.
