Residents of West Frankfort Main St. Building to Vacate by Nov. 20

WEST FRANKFORT – The city of West Frankfort said those living in a building deemed “dangerous and unsafe” by a recent Franklin County Circuit Court order have until Nov. 20 to find a new home.

According to a press release via the City of West Frankfort’s Facebook page the 101 W. Main St. building will be demolished with all garbage, debris and other hazardous materials to be removed immediately.

The city posted signs on the building Nov. 13 notifying all occupants to vacate within 7 days and enlisted Crosswalk to assist residents in securing alternative housing. Trinity Methodist Church is also assisting with immediate motel/shelter housing.

The city encourages those needing assistance in finding alternative housing to contact Heather at Crosswalk at 937-3581 ext. 151.
