Last month, LaRue County Fiscal Court authorized County Attorney Dale Morris to take legal action against an absentee landowner concerning property in Magnolia.
The action will be delayed due to the death of the property owner, Karen L. Holm, on July 3.
The house, located at 392 Old L&N Turnpike in Magnolia, burned almost two years ago. According to Jill Gray, solid waste coordinator, Holm refused to clean the debris or fill in the exposed basement despite an agreement reached in LaRue District Court.
Gray said the county would have to proceed through proper legal channels to pursue the matter.
