The Brickhouse Restaurant in Bushnell burned down in March of 2011.
Nothing has been done to the Main Street site since the fire. Debris remains in the alley behind it.
Mayor Steve Russell says the building is an eyesore and a safety hazard.
He says, “A lot of people say, 'You know, how much longer do we have to look at this mess? Can't we get it cleaned up? And, of course, if we condemn the property and the city goes in and does it it's going to cost several thousands of dollars.”
