The city will rubber-stamp its decision Wednesday evening to put a former crack den on the market.

Councillors will vote to sell 193 King St. E., former home of the Sandbar tavern. The building has been a notorious site of criminal and drug activity.

There are buyers interested in turning the building around, said Coun. Jason Farr.

The general issues committee voted on April 16 to sell it. City council will finalize that decision at a meeting that starts at 5 p.m.

CBC Hamilton reporter Samantha Craggs will tweet live from the meeting. Follow her at @SamCraggsCBC or in the window below.
