A nuisance property in Shelbyville is now under city control.
The house that sits at 111 E. Hendricks St. (photo) has been deemed beyond repair and the company that currently owns it, INDYRE LLC, out of Boca Raton, Florida, has agreed to deed the property over to the City of Shelbyville.
The residence can now be destroyed and the property can be disposed of per Indiana requirements, according to mayor Tom DeBaun.
“We have done everything we could do to save that house,” said Board of Works board member David Finkel Tuesday morning at City Hall.
EJ Rentals LLC owned the property from Dec. 4, 2017 through Feb. 2, 2021 when it was sold to Savvy In LLC.
INDYRE LLC took over control of the property on April 12 of this year.
