After a fire on May 26, 2010, Belleville city leaders demolished two buildings deemed unsafe at 205 E. Main St. The owners went to court over the action and the drawn-out battle left the city with a downtown eyesore through years of public festivals and Christmas shopping seasons. Work finally began Monday to fill 'The Hole."
