Two Jefferson City buildings declared dangerous because of ‘human waste, hazardous materials’


The Jefferson City Department of Planning and Protective Services added two properties to its list of dangerous buildings in as many weeks.

A home at 1102 Bald Hill Road was given notice on Feb. 3 and notice was posted at a home at 715 Michigan St., last Friday.

"Last year, the Dangerous Building Code was revised to better provide a just, equitable and practicable method for the repairing, vacation or demolition of buildings or structures that may endanger the life, limb, health, property, safety, or welfare of the occupants of such buildings or general public. "

Sonny Sanders, Director of Planning and Protective Services

Both the Bald Hill Road and Michigan Street houses were cited with serious health hazards including human waste, accumulated trash and other dangerous materials.

"Property, as well as structure, have a large amount of trash, debris, and other abandoned items," said the two reports. "There are many broken windows, doors and lacks all basic life safety amenities."
