Port Huron City Council voted Monday evening to continue with the demolition of a home even though the new owner stated, he has put money into the home and was prepared to spend more to bring it up to code. Mr. Henry Hudson who is a three-time cancer survivor, and built his first home at 20 years of age, was given the property by quit claim deed. Voting in favor of the demolition were council members Sherry Archibald, Alan Lewandowski and Rico Ruiz, with Mayor Pauline Repp and council members Brian Moeller and Ken Harris voting in favor of rescinding the demolition. The motion needed 5 votes in favor of rescinding the order for it to pass. Moeller says he feels the city over reacted when making a decision to spend $20,000 to tear down the house located at 1419 Lapeer Ave. Mayor Pauline Repp told WGRT that she felt the entire issue was handled poorly. She felt, the new owner made a poor decision in moving ahead with the work without bringing it before council. Alan Lewandowski said he voted no because the new owner, Mr. Hudson said he could not comply with the city-requested work agreement. Rico Ruiz, told WGRT he was choosing not to answer the question. Mr. Hudson told WGRT he would continue making improvements to the building until a bulldozer came through and carried him away.
