The city of Red Bank has filed suit against a couple over three run-down properties.
The Chancery Court complaint was lodged by City Attorney Arnie Stulce against Steve and /Austine Jan.
The suit says houses owned by the Jans at 2622 Berkley Dr., 4 Trenton St. and 4506 Crerar St. became so dilapidated that a hearing was held before the Red Bank Commission on March 19. The commission voted unanimously to have the houses taken down.
However, attorney Stulce said no action has been taken by the Jans to do so.
The lawsuit asks that the court declares the three residences to be public nuisances and order their demolition.
