HARLINGEN  – The city of Harlingen will be the host to a National Guard Counterdrug Task Force home demolition program.

It's part of an operation crackdown effort by the Texas National Guard. The program uses money from drug seizures to eliminate homes which were havens to drug activity, according to a Harlingen City Commission agenda.

“It’s a way for the military to give back,” said Harlingen Planning and Development Director Rodrigo Davila. “We work closely with the police department to identify structures which would be havens for drug activity or graffiti.”

The city agenda gives the following list of homes scheduled to be demolished under the program so you and your neighbors can be aware:

Aug. 17: 1918 Buena Vista, 1911 Marchita

Aug. 18: 2105 New Combes, 621 Mendez Street, 906 N. D Street
