It’s time to clean up the mess

Regarding the apartment fire on Main Street that occurred several months ago. I am really sick of looking at that mess every time I go into town, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

How long does it take for the legalities to be worked out so that the mess can be cleaned up? Where is the stumbling block? Is it the City or the owners of the building? If indeed it is the owners of the building, then the City should lean on them a little to get the mess cleared. Or does the City have some grandiose scheme to clear that entire strip and put something else in its place?

The Rainbow Cafe is a landmark, and I don’t think it should be removed from the block. A lot of Auburn residents find it a great place to go to eat and meet friends.

Just clean up the fire mess to make our city look better.
