The fate of the old First Baptist Church building in Osceola will be discussed Monday night at the Osceola City Council meeting. 

The church, which sits in the middle of a residential area, is so old it has caved in.

Residents are concerned for their children’s safety after some were spotted playing in the rubble.

The council will review a bid from a company to see how much it will cost to be torn down.

According to Code Enforcement Officer David Tucker, it will either be approved or the city will have to come up with other options to get rid of it.
