WDT: City sues owner of burned down High Street building for clean-up costs

    While refusing to pay the cost of demolition of a burned out building on High Street, the owner went on to purchase another building on Public Square that houses a popular local restaurant.
       That's an additional twist to this story.

$70k? Was there $50k in asbestos?
If not, sounds like an overpriced bill to send the victim.
Is the city also suing the owners of the other buildings the city demolished? Or is this something you do "means testing" for before starting an action?

It makes sense to only sue people that still have some money, because the rich aren't paying their fair share.

I miss the roller rink...who paid to demolish that?

Hey what about the house on Main Ave. it was the green one, we tore it down, Did all the testing then sold it to PJ for $1000.00. Now the building next door owned by the same person is caving in....Seems odd.
