Debris removal begins at Legends building

Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 11, a 20-yard dumpster has been parked outside the former Legends building on Minnesota Avenue in Breckenridge, Minnesota.

The dumpster is well-marked and will cause no pedestrian or traffic hazards, said Joel Hoistad, Breckenridge building official. When debris is being cleared from the building, the surrounding sidewalk is blocked off.

Debris removal is being handled by owner DeWayne Clark and whomever he’s working with, Hoistad said. Details of the project have been approved by Breckenridge officials including Police Chief Kris Karlgaard.

A considerable amount of debris needs to be removed from three levels in the building before renovations can begin, Daily News previously reported. It is unknown when the project will be completed.
