Thornton takes action on Main Street nuisances

Nuisance properties were up for discussion again at the regular meeting of the Thornton City Council on Monday, November 6.

Continuing their efforts to see Main Street properties maintained, it was reported that Don Pittman, owner of 312 Main Street, had been served a letter of notice giving him 14 days to respond to problems with his building. However, with a concern about the possibility of bricks falling from the roof, the council also discussed immediate measures they could take.

The city make take additional action as needed to keep the building from becoming a safety hazard, assessing the costs to the property.
