COLUMBUS, Ohio - A bench warrant was issued for the owner of a dilapidated trolley station behind Franklin Park after she failed to appear in court Friday on a housing code violation on another property.

Minnie McGee faces a $30,000 fine if the trolley barn is not brought up to code by her next court date in March.

McGee was held in contempt by the court for letting the station fall into disrepair. She was supposed to appear Friday in Franklin County Environmental Court for a housing code violation on a home at 1784 Bryden Ave. She did not appear in court for that arraignment and has been issued a bench warrant for her arrest.

The warrant includes a $5,000 bond that McGee will have to pay or face arrest.

McGee is the assistant dean at The Ohio State University's Minority Engineering Program.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The fate of a piece of Columbus history is being decided in court as the owner of a dilapidated trolley station behind Franklin Park is being held in contempt of court for letting the station fall into disrepair.
Six buildings sitting on three acres are at the heart of the lawsuit the city brought against Minnie McGee, a landlord who has owned the old trolley station at 1610 Oak Street for a decade.
"How much of this neighborhood is she going to be allowed to let lay in disrepair until we have to get a hoard of people out here to say something to her?" said Kim Barrett, a neighbor.
McGee has owned the historic east-side trolley station since 2003 and was compelled Thursday to meet with city and court officials on site to decide whether to hold her in contempt for neglecting the trolley station.
"This property has been vacant probably less than two years. I know the last tenant was in here until late 2010," McGee said.
She claims the tenants were responsible for the upkeep.
"There are a lot of issues here that I don't have answers for, but that is why the city just recently filed this lawsuit," said Judge Harland Hale.
A contractor who works with McGee defended her.
"She is not a slumlord. She has always built the building and put a lot of money in them," said Eugene Crockett, of Crockett Construction.
But neighbors disagreed.
"The building behind me is the actual trolley turnaround that has been falling apart for years. Nothing has been done about it," said Allen Price, a neighbor.
McGee told the judge she owns 70 other properties and is also an assistant dean at The Ohio State University.
After hearing testimony, Hale found McGee in contempt and starting in April, she will have to pay $250 each day until she brings the site up to building code.

So one of Coleman's or a councilman's buddies what the trolley station land and wants tax payers to get it for them

If people don't like something on land they don't own they need to get a big enough bag of cash and buy it. Don't hide behind some fudge packer in a robe.

Maybe she though like obama and the rest of blackdom does that someone else will come along and do the work. As for the minority engineering? Camden and Detroit need a bunch of work! They should go there and, ahem, shine.

The only accident here is you. Kind of makes the argument for there being a God specious. "Shit happens!" is closer to the truth because you happened.

You come across as unimaginative when you use the same lame "insult" repeatedly. Did your brain stop working?
