Barbara Soderlin from her Pineview update:
Building co-owner Todd Lamont said Thursday that the "work will continue; we're just looking at a few things right now." Deadwood building inspector Keith Umenthum said he wasn't certain why the subcontractor stopped working but said it might have to do with the increasing cost of the job. Umenthum said the city didn't inspect the property in the last three years because it seemed that the owners were making progress.Huh? WTF, Keith? Give up when ip left town? As for the Loveland, Colorado based contractor leaving the job site: Deadwood has a strict policy governing undocumented workers where city employees are union members.
My opinion? Seize the building, Keith; fine the fucking assholes for every day the property has been in their possession, and hire a local contractor.
