VERMILION COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — Danville Mayor Scott Eisenhauer says the city is moving forward with its lawsuit against the former owners of Collins Tower.

The Bresee Tower was just renamed when Chris and Jeri Collins bought it. They plan to turn it into a hotel, convention center and amusement park.

The 100-year old building has been falling apart for years. The city sued former owner, Land Company of Danville, for not addressing the building’s public safety risk.

Meanwhile LCD states it’s sending the city a ceaseE and desist order to keep the city from “further slandering and defaming our corporate name by making false allegations of debts due to the city.”

The Collins are not involved in the lawsuit.
