The Brick Township council this week voted to award a contract for the demolition of a residential home that has fallen into extreme disrepair, including the removal of asbestos.

The governing body unanimously approved a resolution for a Monmouth County firm to demolish the property at 24 Adair Drive, an abandoned home near the entrance to the Shore Acres neighborhood, off Drum Point Road. According to county tax records, the property was last sold in January to a corporate entity known as Korn Finger LLC, based in Lakewood. Over the past several years, the records show numerous transactions related to foreclosure proceedings.

The home, built in 1920, has fallen into disrepair, including a broken-down deck in the front, weeds growing from an unmaintained driveway and severely deteriorating roofing and shingles.

The council ordered the demolition of the structure after proceedings before the township’s Property Maintenance Board. The demolition contract was awarded to Frank Lurch Demolition Company, of Avon-by-the-Sea, for $16,200 for the base demolition services and $2,000 per ton for asbestos remediation.
