Oronoko Township Looking To Demolish Vacant Apartment Building

Oronoko Township officials have had enough of a vacant and dilapidated apartment building on North Lemon Creek Road. Township Supervisor Mike Hildebrand tells us the township has sent a demolition notice to the owners of the building at 8822 Lemon Creek after the apartment’s owners missed multiple deadlines to fix up the eyesore. Hildebrand says the place is on its third roof tarp, and has issues with mold. It’s one of 34 properties the township identified in 2017 for cleanup. Out of those, the apartment building is one of two that still has issues. Hildebrand says the township will move forward with demolition within two weeks, and the cost will then be tacked on to the parcel’s tax bill. He couldn’t say what that amount will be.
