The court injunction hearing to address City of Troy and Miami County hazardous mitigation and property maintenance orders against the owner of the Oddfellows/Tavern Building, originally scheduled for today and tomorrow, was cancelled. Yesterday, Law Director Grant Kerber was able to secure the property owner's agreement to comply with the city's demands to replace the windows, repair the roof, and secure the parapet and bricks on the Oddfellows/Tavern Building facade. Terms and conditions of the agreement are being finalized, but the agreement will enable the city's West Main Street project contractor to gain access to the street and sidewalk in front of the building within the next month, keeping the project on schedule.
Troy Mayor Robin Oda: "The situation changed significantly after our structural engineer confirmed that the building is in better condition than originally thought. After reviewing his analysis, Miami County rescinded their mitigation order, which took away the property owner's only excuse for illegally attempting to demolish the building. We look forward to getting our West Main Street project back on track."
Further details will be provided as available and necessary.
