CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Residents in Lupton City and neighborhood leaders are insisting the city and county clear a dangerous, half-demolished mill near where they live. 

Heaps of old brick, rotting wood and run down buildings line Mercer street.

The city took over ownership of the property after the RL Stowe Mill shut down and couldn't pay property taxes. 

On Jan. 6, 2017, Mayor Berke pledged $1.5 million to begin cleanup in July 2017, when the city and Hamilton County became owners of the property through unpaid taxes.
