Burned Frontenac building a cause of concern from some residents

Updated:

The former home of Santino's, a popular sports bar and eatery, suffered a damaging fire in December 2012. Now the once-popular location is the subject of discontent among some residents. 

"You come to the rear of the building there is a tremendous amount of rubbish and rubble," said Frontenac resident Monica Kellogg. 

Kellogg owns a business directly next to the former Santino's location. She said the state the building has been left in, more than a year after it burned, is a blight to the community. 

"It's just mainly a safety issue," said Kellogg. "And I dread the spring because when the temperatures get higher it's going to result in quite a smell, an odor."

Kellogg describes the odor to be a burning smell.

Tom Moody, the property owner, says he wants the building to be demolished. 

"I can assure you that there is no one who would rather have that demolished more than myself," said Moody.

The reasons for delay, says Moody, is legal, as the building is in litigation to determine the cause of the fire. 

"There is nothing I can do until that's been done," said Moody.

At Monday's City Council meeting. Kellogg presented officials with images to support her concern over the potential health hazards. She also requested the council mandate a timeline for action.
