End of the road?

ST. JOSEPH — Thursday is the deadline for the owner of a St. Joseph house to demolish the building that has repeatedly been declared uninhabitable and a safety hazard.

If nothing is done by that time, the city of St. Joseph will take action to have the house at 1051 Niles Ave. torn down, according to city attorney Laurie Schmidt.
