AUGUSTA,GA (WJBF)  It’s out with the old in Augusta’s Hyde Park neighborhood.
The demolition of about 100 houses is now underway.

The site is being cleared to make room for a storm water retention pond to ease flooding in the area.

Last week commissioners rejected a plan to use inmates and city equipment to tear down the buildings, instead of paying  private contractors.

Six million dollars was approved in SPLOST Seven for the Hyde Park project.
