Last night the story broke that Tim Thone will be purchasing the Heinrich house and demolishing the structures by Christmas. Mr. Thone has been impacted by this story since the day it began many years ago and felt compelled to do something to provide an opportunity for all involved to heal. Mr. Thone is truly someone with a big heart and proof that there are still people out there ready to step up, for whatever reason, and help make things right.
On behalf of the council, I would like to thank Mr. Thone and his team for providing this gift not only for the community but for all involved.
The question that remains is what will the city do with the property. The answer at this time is absolutely nothing. There will be plenty of time in the future to determine what happens to this property, but what is important now is that we be patient and take some time for the healing process to continue.
