The Hanover Town Council on Tuesday lifted a demolition order for a home at 147 Hickory St.
The home in question had been deemed unsafe because of excessive termite damage, structural damage and standing water.
The town allowed a contractor to address the issues while the order was in place, but had their building inspector Danny Kramer assess the work along the way.
On Tuesday, Kramer gave a written recommendation notifying the board that the property is now in compliance with town codes and ordinances. Kramer told the Council that the home was inspected in February and no live infestation of termites was found.
In other business:
The Council gave permission to Metronet, a phone and Internet fiber optic company, to use the town's public right-of-way to expand its service to Hanover. The company plans to begin construction in June and end in November.
The Council approved a one-year maintenance contract with Steinhardt Heating & Air Conditioning for $873. The company will oversee unit maintenance for the town community and town hall buildings.
