BATTLE GROUND, Ind. (WLFI) - The town of Battle Ground is suing an investment group that promised to fix up an eye-sore hotel along I-65.

The Illinois-based investment group, REI purchased the old Days Inn along I-65 and State Road 43 and promised to renovate it. However, after the company asked for multiple extensions and eventually went quiet, Battle Ground had enough.

On May 11, the town claimed work had stopped and asked a judge to order a demolition. The town is also asking for a receiver, someone to handle and find the funds for the demolition.

REI now has 30 days to file a response. If the company doesn't file a response within that time, the judge can move forward with ordering a demolition.
