    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.
