On the corner of 1st Street and Elm Street in downtown Henderson, a large pile of rubble and debris remains where the former Alles Brothers building once stood.

Thursday morning, the City of Henderson Code Enforcement Board held a special-called meeting to make new plans for the cleanup of the collapsed building.

During Thursday's special-called meeting, the Code Enforcement Board ruled that cleanup must begin on the property in seven days, and must be completed in 35 calendar days.

The board also approved the City’s request that the citation penalty increase to $750 per day if the clean-up takes longer than the 35-day timeframe that was granted.
