SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The City Council has given another demolition reprieve to a 125-year-old home in Sioux City’s historic Rose Hill district.

The council voted on Monday to give Jim Gengler the extra time to either repair or sell the home.

It was flagged by the city in August 2013 for severe rot and other structural issues. This past February the council gave Salvador Carrasco 150 days to at least make significant progress on renovations. City records say he has not. On Monday Gengler told the council that he’s bought the home from Carrasco.
