Powell River city council has ordered the Inn at Westview to be dealt with.

Council voted unanimously to declare the building a nuisance and public safety hazard. Councillor Rob Southcott says as part of that motion, the building was ordered to be demolished.

“The structure [unfortunately] is in a stage of collapse now, so it just has to be done”, he says.

The motion, passed last Thursday, gives the owner 15 days to apply for a demolition permit and the work must be completed within 30 days of that permit being received.
