An eyesore for some in Gibson County could soon be leveled.
"It's just ugly to look at," said Jeremy Matsel of Fort Branch.
The Emge Meat Packing Plant used to be a thriving business.
"It was a huge boom for the city. Huge boom for the area," said Adam Bledsoe of the Fort Brach Town Council.
What once was a source of pride is now busted concrete and broken glass.
"Basically it would be nice if it was tore down," said Matsel.
A Gibson County businessman says he is going to do just that. Jim Pohl owns "A & T Concrete" and is the new owner of the old Emge Plant. Pohl says demolition could start as early as Monday.
"It is sad to see it in the state that it's in," said Bledsoe.
Some neighbors say the plant served its purpose and it's time for a change.
"It's just one of those things where you got to pick up and move on and do something else," said Matsel.
Pohl says he plans to use the property for storage for his concrete business. There are some warehouses that are used for storage by other businesses, those leases will be honored until they expire. Pohl says nearly everything else on the property will be leveled.
