At its regular meeting Monday, June 1, the Jefferson City Council issued an ultimatum to the property owner at 113 North 3rd Street. If the property is not repaired and cleaned up within 30 days, the city will demolish it.

The residence is one of a number that were identified in May of 2019 as needing to be cleaned up and repaired. The property owners were all notified that the work needed to be completed by spring of 2020. However, the owners of the North 3rd property are still hauling cars and junk onto the property and failing to keep weeds and grass mowed. The council obtained priced quotes for demolition and discussed how those costs could be recouped.
