Officials with the city of West Plains announce Butler Children’s Park will be closed beginning Monday, and will remain closed until the Parkside House demolition is complete and all debris is removed.
On Tuesday, a public auction was held where certain items from the house were sold. The auction raised $8,027.50 for the city and will go into the general fund.
Simpson Excavating was awarded the bid to take the house down at $1,150 per day.
The public will be notified once the park is open for children’s use.
