The Mound City Council held a special meeting on Monday, June 13, for the purposes of holding a condemnation hearing on property located at 218 Chestnut and to make a decision regarding policy for permits for beer gardens within the city.
Once the condemnation hearing was opened City Attorney Jess Randall spoke with the property owners who agreed the structure is unsafe, but noted they are having a hard time finding someone to tear it down that they can afford.
