BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Leaders in Birmingham are deciding whether to get rid of an eyesore that's hard to miss if you ever drive through the city on Interstate 65.
The Birmingham City Council is set to vote Tuesday on whether to demolish an old hotel located right beside I-65 near downtown.
The city would spend about $750,000 to tear down the structure. The business was a Sheraton and then a Ramada Inn before switching to different names and falling into disrepair.
The building was condemned in 2010, but it's been the scene of at least two fires since. The latest blaze happened in July.
The city has been working for years to get the old hotel torn down to remove blight and promote new development.
