A judge ruled last week that the city may proceed with the demolition.
Mayor Joe Yochum says tearing down the building won't be cheap…
Yochum says the demolition cost would be passed on to the owner of the Executive Inn.
The demolition timetable calls for the Board of Works to open bids, and award the contract, at its January 14th meeting.
Demolition could start soon after the contract is awarded.
The owner of the property still has the option of appealing the judge's ruling to the Indiana Court of Appeals.
That would indefinitely delay the razing of the building.
