SHAMOKIN, NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)- An emergency meeting this morning after part of a building collapsed in Shamokin.
The Northumberland County Housing Authority offered to donate $10,000 to the city to help stabilize the old Shroyer Dress Factory.
The building, which has sat vacant for years, partially collapsed on power lines Sunday, knocking out power for hundreds.
Residents say the building needs to be demolished. However, the city says that it could cost $300,000 and it doesn’t have the money.
City leaders are calling on state lawmakers for help.
