An Ohio man says local officials cut a building in half to end a property dispute with him. It happened in Ruggles Township following a complaint by Brett Galloway, who contends township officials constructed a building that was partly on his property.
“It is pretty much the most ridiculous thing ever,” Galloway told WJW.
He said he has tried negotiating with township leaders since January, but last week, when they didn’t reach an agreement, officials put up a fence and cut down part of the building. About a third of the building still remains on Galloway’s property. Officials plan to tear down their portion. The building was used to store equipment.
Galloway said he has another unrelated property issue with the township that is already in court, and he had hoped to get this matter resolved.
