Update: City directors condemn Majestic Hotel

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - It's been more than a year since the historic Majestic Hotel burned down in Hot Springs.

The rubble from the fire still sits virtually untouched in the middle of downtown and now the city is taking matters into its own hands. But it is a sticky situation, while people in Hot Springs are anxious to get the mess cleaned up, they don't want to get stuck with the bill.

"It's private property," said Hot Springs Assistant City Manager Lance Spicer. "That's one of the things that we keep running into is: we only have so much authority that we can do when we're dealing with a private property owner."

Majestic condemnation back on board Agenda

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - Monday, the Hot Springs City Board could could once again decide to condemn the old Majestic Hotel property, the part that was not burned down in a fire more than a year ago.

Previous efforts have been tabled, while the property owner negotiated with city and state officials on a clean-up plan.

But tomorrow may be different. A deadline to begin removing debris from the site expired last week without any action.
