Another “eyesore” bought by the city of La Salle

Posted by wlpo on February 2, 2016

Efforts continue in and around downtown La Salle to get rid of eyesore buildings.

The La Salle City Council is moving forward with buying an apartment across the street from the Beck’s gas station along Route 6, or 3rd Street. The city is paying $12,000 to take on the property they consider to be a nuisance.

Mayor Jeff Grove says they don’t plan to tear the apartment down but they are hoping to develop the block it sits on. There is a relative of the landlord living in the apartment right now.

The city hopes to officially close on the property by the end of the month.
