SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - A northern Ohio city is again making plans to demolish a shuttered crayon factory that it says is a serious safety hazard.

Sandusky officials say they want to tear down the 110-year-old American Crayon building by next spring.

The city manager tells the Sandusky Register (https://bit.ly/1HcQL8J ) that they are moving forward with the demolition as an emergency.

The fate of the building has been tied up in a two-year legal fight between two private developers who own the site.

The American Crayon building is one of the largest in Sandusky. The plant closed in 2002.

Sandusky officials in 2011 were hoping a quick court action would spur the building’s demolition. They say it continues to pose a significant safety and health risk.
