The city of Goldsboro is moving forward with plans to get rid of deteriorating and dilapidated houses.

Two more houses are scheduled to be condemned at the council's Monday meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. and is held in council chambers in City Hall on Center Street.

The house, owned by Eunice D. Hines of Goldsboro, is at 722 Longleaf Ave.

It was originally inspected in June 2003 and was found to be dilapidated and not secure.

A storage building at 1717 Harrell St., owned by Charles Richter of Fayetteville, is also scheduled to be condemned.

In addition to the condemnations, the council will also consider the following items Monday night:

*A public hearing regarding a request from Darrell Ham to rezone the west side of Wayne Memorial Drive between Lockhaven Drive and Eleventh Street, from general business and office and institutional to shopping center.

*A public hearing regarding a request from Ada K. Melvin to rezone the north side of Hooks River Road between Elton Drive and U.S. Highway 117 Bypass from R-12 residential, I-5 general industry and watershed protection to office and institutional and watershed protection.

*A request to close Sunset Lane, which runs from the west side of Granville Drive in the Spring Garden subdivision.
