YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The owners of the Gallagher building have received another fine after a city inspection early Wednesday morning revealed that the Gatta Company ignored orders to repair the building.
The building used to hold Cedar’s Lounge, which was forced out to make room for a new brew-pub and apartments. The building sat empty since 2012, however, even after the owners received more than $1 million in tax credits from the state for renovations.
Wednesday, a $1,000 fine was posted on the door.
City Code Officer Abigail Beniston said the city has fined the building’s owners $1,600 in total. The next step could be through city courts.
