11 News first brought you a story Wednesday about an abandoned car wash on North Avenue that is a known hangout for the homeless.

Businesses around the car wash wanted the structure torn down, and Thursday 11 News has learned that county officials have officially condemned the building.

Officials say they have sent a letter to the owner of the property telling him he has 45 days to repair the building. If the owner decides not to repair the structure after 60 days the city will decide if they want to tear it down.
