The city’s deadline for the owner of the central warehouse to make required repairs has now come and gone.

The central warehouse’s owner Evan Blum was required to seal the roof, windows, and doors of the building as well as seal exposed concrete, get rid of the trash littering the site and trim the rampant overgrowth on the property.
Blum had also been ordered to register the building as vacant. All of this had to be done by Friday but no progress was made.

The director of the department of buildings and regulatory compliance says the case has now moved on to the prosecution phase.
