MILLVILLE, N.J. -

The demolition of a condemned building has cleared a judicial hurdle, but there's still no word on when the building will actually come down.

On Tuesday, April 10th, a superior court judge granted the City of Millville permission to demolish the building at 109 East Main Street in Millville.

The building, which is located next to the iconic Millville restaurant Jim's Lunch, was deemed a public safety concern late last month.

Mayor Michael Santiago says that the city is working on a plan to take the building down, but it still needs to be approved by the city's structural engineers before they move forward.

The mayor says they want to demolish the dangerous building while saving the building that houses Jim's Lunch.
