WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) - The Walnut Ridge City Council voted in favor of filing a lawsuit against a building owner at their meeting on Monday night.
They have been trying to demolish a building at 108 NE Front Street.
Earlier this month, an engineering firm ruled the building was structurally unsound and dangerous.
Mayor Charles Snapp told Region 8 News the city attorney will file the suit, then it will be up to a judge if the property will be abated or not.
The council passed the motion with 6 "yes" votes.
Snapp said Alderman Jon Walter abstained from voting because he owns the property next to the building.
