The city of Minneapolis decided to push forward with demolition plans for a duplex in northeast Minneapolis, deemed unlivable last summer.
The City Council met on Friday and agreed to tear down the vacant home, according to the Pioneer Press.
WIth piles of dead cats, animal droppings, and rotting debris, an inspector's report from last summer found the stench of the house inescapable, the Pioneer Press reported.
According to City Council member Tom Deegan, the city has tried to work with the homeowner- a clinically diagnosed hoarder, however those talks have been unsuccessful, Fox News said.
The duplex is set to be demolished this summer, and the owner will be charged $15,000 to cover the costs, the Pioneer Press said.
Fox reportedly talked to the family, who said the proceedings have "destroyed" them.
