Downtown La Salle building owner ticketed for dangerous building

Posted by wlpo on October 30, 2013

          Walk past the old Elk’s Lodge in downtown La Salle and it will smell musty and old.  The building has been vacant for nearly a decade and La Salle Police say it’s in deplorable condition.

          Officers were at the building at 540 First Street Monday morning after someone reported a door was unsecured.  Police say they found more unsecured doors and described the building as deplorable and completely unsafe to occupy.

          Its owner, Dan Burke of Utica, was ticketed for having an unsafe or dangerous building.  Police say he had been warned before about unsecured doors and poor building conditions. Burke was given a court date.
