BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - More than three months after one wall of a vacant Butte warehouse collapsed, the city is still trying to get the owner to demolish the rest of the building.

But now Butte-Silver Bow officials are saying “not so fast.”

Sheriff Ed Lester went to the site Tuesday to serve owner Neil Lynch with a cease-and-desist order after county officials learned that the two contractors he listed on his demolition permit had not been hired to do the work. Lynch was not there.

County planning director Jon Sesso says the county wants to know who is going to do the demolition work to make sure they are properly insured.

Lynch did not return a phone message from The Montana Standard (https://bit.ly/1sfY7yH ) on Wednesday seeking comment.

The building’s wall collapsed on June 28.
