FDL County Judge to Hear Arguments on Status of Former Holy Nativity Convent


A Fond du Lac County Judge will hear arguments today after an appeal was filed by the owner of the former Sisters of the Holy Nativity Convent in Fond du Lac to prevent the building from being torn down.

Last month, Judge Robert Wirtz lifted a temporary restraining order filed by the building’s owner against the city, clearing the way for the demolition process to begin. The city had hired a company in August of last year to begin demolition, but the convent’s owner, George Panousis, filed the restraining order to prevent the city from moving forward. Wirtz moved to lift the restraining order November 20th, with Panousis filing an appeal last week.  

The city had issued a “Raze or Repair” order in 2015 after an arson fire in June of that year caused severe damage to the structure on Division Street. The city argues that there has been little to no effort to repair the damage done to the building and that the vacant structure poses a risk to the community.
