BESSEMER – Bessemer city council members will discuss what to do with four city-owned structures at their next meeting at 6 p.m. tonight. The properties are located at 107 W. Sellar St., 508 S. Moore St., 506 S. Mine St., and 1807 Palms St. At the council’s Jan. 21, city manager Charly Loper said she can apply for a $50,000 state grant, which she estimates will cover the cost of demolishing two of the structures. Also on the agenda tonight, the council also will receive an update on the progress of the city’s pop-up shop program. According to a recent list provided, six of the 13 businesses listed are still open in their original locations, one just opened in January, and one is opening soon. One moved to another location in Bessemer. One sold to another owner. One closed, one did not open, and one was evicted after not paying taxes.
