North Judson Plans Legal Action over Condition of Downtown Building

img_3826The Town of North Judson plans to move forward with legal action over a downtown building deemed to be unsafe. During the previous council meeting, the town scheduled a walk-through of Doug Cassel’s building to determine whether safety concerns had been addressed. But North Judson Clerk-Treasurer Alicia Collins says that when the time for the walk-through came, Cassel refused to allow town officials inside.

Since Cassel didn’t sufficiently demonstrate that any progress had been made, according to Collins, Town Attorney Rachel Arndt will now get involved to determine the next steps.

For weeks, the town council has been urging Cassel to fix various safety hazards at the building, including a broken window, unsecured doors, falling debris, and roofing issues.
