Heritage House action waits on court date

City Attorney Nathan Davis City Attorney Nathan Davis

A full court calendar is holding up court proceedings to tear down the Heritage House hotel.

Code enforcement officers secured the hole in the fence that was allowing people to enter the property.

In court, City Attorney Nathan Davis argued the appeal should be heard by Judge Stephen Goss, while attorneys for Greenbrier Holdings are asking for a jury trial.

Wednesday, Davis pushed for an earlier court date because the city feels the building is a nuisance.

"There could not be a bigger public safety and health issues I don't think, I don't think I'm exaggerating or embellishing it and that's why I pushed so hard this affects the entire community," Davis said.

A high number of felony trials on the court calendar in August will likely push the trial date to September.

Goss is expected to make a decision on whether it will be a bench trial or jury trial and set a court date by Monday.
