A judge stalled the demolition of a vacant Smitty’s grocery store in Old Town Peoria after months of dispute.
The building, which has sat empty for years, is the center of a fight between the city and owner Ron Hassid.
Hassid wants to sell the building for a profit.
Peoria officials want it torn down, calling the empty building “neglected, damaged, dilapidated” and a safety hazard.
