BATTLE GROUND, Ind. (WLFI) — Demolition finally began on the former Days Inn in Battle Ground.


It has sat empty for more than 15 years after Days Inn said it would improve the property, but didn't.


An independent contractor has already taken care of what he says, "90 percent" of the vegetation.


Everything inside the property will be recycled except dry wall and plastics. What use to be the front entrance was torn down Friday evening and in two weeks, the rooms will be demolished followed by everything else.


The goal is to have everything complete within 45 days.


We will talk with the president of Battle Ground's town council next week on what possibly could replace the former days inn.

Look for an updated story on Monday
