Home Ice building condemned at council meeting

Home Ice building condemned at council meeting

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Home Ice building was officially condemned during a Jonesboro city council meeting Tuesday night.

Council members made the decision after it was postponed multiple times.

Property owner, Samuel Rosse III, is in an Atlanta, GA prison but council members told Karen Siegel, who has power of attorney over the property, in July that they wanted to hear from an architect and an engineer about the feasibility of saving the building.

Siegel was unable to hire either before Tuesday's meeting so the council decided to proceed with the condemnation process.

However, there is still a chance for Siegel to obtain building permits for the ice plant and fix it up.
