SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The City Council is expected to decide Monday whether to again delay demolition of a Sioux City home built more than 125 years ago.

The Sioux City Journal says (https://bit.ly/1oMF8ab the home was built in the Morningside neighborhood in 1888. It was gutted by a fire three years ago. Later it was deemed a public hazard that had to be repaired or would have to be torn down.

The council has voted six times to delay demolition. The owners, Bryan and Netha Wise, have been given until Monday to make the required repairs and improvements.

City code enforcement manager Darrel Bullock says the Wises have done substantial work in the past year. Bryan Wise says an inspection is planned before the council meeting.
