Who’s going to fix the retaining wall?
City, county, state discussing which agency must pay
DIXON – The city is arguing that it is not responsible for a retaining wall that collapsed last week at the Old Lee County Courthouse.
A portion of the 3-foot-tall wall collapsed in Wednesday’s rain, forcing the city sidewalk around the courthouse to be closed. Debris, which included some 300- to 400-pound stones, was cleared by city workers Monday, City Engineer Shawn Ortgiesen said.
Now Ortgiesen awaits a response from the Illinois Department of Transportation on who is responsible for paying for cleanup and maintenance.
