Sounds of demolition welcome in 1 neighborhood + a preview of the Democratic debate

Sounds of demolition welcome in 1 neighborhood + a preview of the Democratic debate

Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall. Here are the stories we're working on for WBRC FOX6 News this evening.
 
Demolition approved
Some call it the "West End Ghost Town." It's made up of blocks and blocks of abandoned apartments that were once called Larkway Gardens. The empty buildings with broken windows have become a breeding ground for crime and vagr ants. Today the Birmingham City Council voted to tear them down. We'll have a live report on this action that will change an entire neighborhood.
 
Bring back my DMV
Governor Robert Bentley has an idea to reopen those DMV offices across the state that were shut down due to budget cuts. Will his plan work? We'll check out the possibilities.
 
Democratic presidential debate
We've watched the GOP presidential debates now it's the Democrats' turn. What will happen when Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders face off? Birmingham Southern-College professor Natalie Davis join us with a look at what to watch for tonight.

Those stories and more beginning at 5 p.m. on WBRC FOX6 News.
