GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - A central Kentucky man has lost a long-running battle to save a house he wanted to use to grow vegetation for building materials and food.

Steven Price of Georgetown told WKYT-TV in Lexington (https://bit.ly/1ww4xe8 ) the city wanted to demolish the house to garner favor with his neighbors.

In a letter to Price, Georgetown City Attorney Andrew Hartley says the home has been neglected for the past decade and cannot be saved.

Hartley says he talked to Habitat for Humanity about fixing up the home to sell to a needy family but declined after seeing the cost of repairs.

When he visited the house last week, Hartley says every room was filled with various items from commercial beehives to broken appliances.

The house is scheduled to be demolished Tuesday or Wednesday.
