BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The city of Birmingham will look at giving its land banking authority some power in the form of money this week.

The city council plans to vote on putting about $370,000 into the land banking authority's budget.

The money would help the new authority piece together abandoned properties or vacant houses to turn over to developers or even neighbors to try and clear out blighted areas and transform them through redevelopment.
