EFFINGHAM, Ill. (WCIA) — City council officials declared the Village Square Mall “dangerous and unsafe.”

They unanimously approved an ordinance Tuesday night, with the sole intention of forcing repairs to be made.

The mall has leaks in its roof and damaged ceiling tiles inside the building. The issues are creating safety concerns with the sprinkler and alarm systems.

The mall’s general manager says progress is being made fixing the problems.
