Ohio city leaders decided to solve a property dispute with a resident by cutting a building in half.
The city constructed a storage building for equipment, but part of the structure was on Brett Galloway’s property, WJW reported.
Galloway has been working with city leaders since January but discussions ended without a deal. Instead, city leaders decided to cut the building in half and installed a chain-link fence.
“It is pretty much the most ridiculous thing ever,” Galloway told WJW. “I don’t know who would think this is a good idea. I can’t use my property and they lost a building.”
Officials plan to tear down the portion built on city land. They are unable to demolish the other section because Galloway would not let them on the property, WJW reported.
