The city of Clintonville might be on the hook for the cost of razing a building after the property owner has taken no action to remove the building.
Clintonville Public Works Director Kray Brown told the Clintonville Streets Committee at its Aug. 9 meeting that the building at 5 Ginger Court is a burned out structure that has been on the property for approximately 3 1/2 years.
Brown told the committee that Clintonville City Attorney Keith Steckbauer has been involved. He added that a raze or repair order that the city issued has expired.
Brown requested that the city raze the building as soon as possible. An asbestos inspection will have to be done prior to demolition.
“According to a Clintonville Public Works staff report, the fire causing the damage to the building structure at 5 Ginger Court happened in 2015. The damage of the fire exceeds the value of replacement.
